The Medici family is one of the most well-known family names throughout history. This powerful Florentine family had a vast impact on the world from the 13th century to the 17th century. They alone produced three popes, Leo X, Leo XI and Clement VII. Nobility was common among the Medici family as well, as their family engulfed the French and English royalty. The Medici family also produced many rulers of the capital of the Tuscan region of Italy, Florence. Their contributions to the world were spread out over many different fields. After being involved in banking for quite some time, the family created The Medici Bank, which would evolve into the largest bank in Europe during the 15th century. The Medicis also developed the double-entry bookkeeping system, which was used to track credits as well as debits.
What the Medicis were most famous for, though, was their love for art. They played a major role in the development of the Italian Renaissance, commissioning many important artists. The Medicis were patrons of some of the most famous Renaissance men to ever grace the Earth, including Galileo Galilei, Filippo Brunelleschi, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael. The Medici family also oversaw the construction of the Sistine Chapel, which says a lot about how important this family was.
When we decided that we wanted to create another new house-blend for you, the Medici family represented everything that we wanted in a cigar. They had a lasting impact on society and were well-respected by even those who didn't know them. We knew that there was only one company that could create the Medici cigar, and that company was Alec Bradley.
Alan Rubin's company has come a long way since the conception of the Occidential Reserve cigar in 2000. We've watched his cigars increase in sales over the years, and each product that has come out has impressed us even more. Cigar Aficionado has echoed the progress of Alec Bradley, as many of their recent cigars have received 90 or better ratings. In fact, their latest cigar, the Alec Bradley Tempus, recently received a 94 in Cigar Insider. With all of these facts at our disposal, it was easy to trust Alec Bradley with the Medici.
