As far back as the mid-1800s, records exist describing the pre-meeting tradition of Brethren smoking cigars during and after gatherings of the Masons. To this day, the practice of smoking cigars remains very much alive in many lodges. This custom is considered a time for Brethren to relax, exchange ideas, and enjoy the simplicity and fellowship that is the very essence of Brotherhood. This is what Hiram & Solomon Cigars is all about. Their starting principles are to bring Mason brothers together in the harmony of a good cigar. Pull up a chair, sit back, light up any of our premium quality cigars, and enjoy the history.
