Cavalier Genève announced today the public opening of its LE2020 virtual reality cigar lounge, a VR space designed to celebrate and memorialize the brand’s collectible Limited Edition 2020 blend. This first-of-its-kind virtual experience enables up to 15 visitors to meet as avatars in an immersive environment with live audio chat and a video from founder Sébastien Decoppet describing his time in Danli, Honduras designing the blend and supervising the production of the cigars. The virtual cigar lounge also includes a photo gallery, 3D renderings of the cigar and box, and art inspired by the blend.
“Because the LE2020 was sold out before even arriving to the US, we wanted to create an online feature to memorialize it on the website for collectors to reference,” said Decoppet, founder and CEO, Cavalier Genève Premium Cigars.
In the virtual environment, first opened to a limited audience in December 2020, every detail pays homage to the LE2020, which just received a 92 Rating from Halfwheel. Although best appreciated through a VR headset like an Oculus, it was built on a browser-based platform accessible on any device, such as laptops, tablets, and mobile phones in order to be available to the majority of users.
