Let us take you on our journey, the journey of how Trident Military Cigars went from an idea between two friends and turned into the brand we are today.
In the cold dark days of January 2019 we first met on a cigar tasting and soon realised each other’s passion for cigars, history and the Armed Forces. One evening in a South London pub the idea of Trident Military Cigars began and a brand was born. We wanted to create a Veteran owned cigar company, wanting to serve the same people that have served, still serve and for anyone who genuinely has a passion for cigars.
Our aim together is simple. To release a tasty, high quality product that is affordable yet desirable whether it’s your first time or you class yourself as an aficionado.
We want you to enjoy our cigars anywhere from battlefields to ballrooms!
We want to keep history alive through our boxes, like it states on the Cenotaph in London.
“The glorious dead”
We want you to remember history through our boxes, which let you delve into and learn about the harrowing, yet truly magnificent battles and war stories of the past.
Acts of courage, selfless commitment and sacrifice are a few of the examples you will find within our boxes. These examples are why we wanted to base our company’s values and standards close to those of the Armed Forces and all blue/green light services. Including Fire, Police, Ambulance, RNLI and Mountain rescue.
Our key objective is to give back to those who need it. Those we have served alongside,
previous generations before our time and generations to come, may unfortunately one day need help and this is why we are teaming up with James Elliott to fund one to one therapy sessions and PTSD awareness training for these people who need it.
We are also making donations to SSAFA, The Armed Forces Charity and Scotty’s Little Soldiers.
We have made a commitment, for every box sold we will donate 10% of our box sales towards these two charities and funding one to one therapy sessions with James.
We have lost close friends to depression, PTSD and Combat Stress.
We don’t want our Veterans and still serving to suffer in silence.
Enough is Enough.
We take pride in the fact that our product is kept to a premium standard through every part of the process. From the farm to the factory, the curation process and being hand rolled to perfection.
Attention to detail is a key value every soldier is taught.
So why would we stop here?
Armed Forces Covenant
It is with great pride that Trident Military Cigars is now a part of the Armed Forces Covenant!
As one year closes and another opens we will be releasing, sneak peaks and clues as to what exactly will be involved in our product and what goals we want to smash in 2022!
It is with great honour that we can now confirm that we will be donating some of our profits to the @scottyslittlesoldiers charity once we release our product in the new year.
Scotty’s Little Soldiers is a charity dedicated to supporting children & young people who have experienced the death of a parent who served in the British Armed Forces.
Inspired by the experience of Army widow Nikki Scott following the death of her husband Corporal Lee Scott in Afghanistan in 2009, the charity is currently providing assistance to hundreds of bereaved Forces children and young people around the UK.
More charity partnerships will be released in the future, we are just making sure that the fine details are sorted.
Thank you for your continued support!
The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) encourages employers to support defence and inspire others to do the same. The scheme encompasses bronze, silver and gold awards for employer organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to defence and the armed forces community, and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant.
Trident Military Cigars Is proud to support those who serve and always will and that is a promise.
We can now confirm that we will be donating some of our profits from box sales to SSAFA. They have been supporting the Armed Forces for over 130 years.
SSAFA helps the armed forces community in a number of ways, their focus is on providing direct support to individuals in need of physical or emotional care.
Addiction, relationship breakdown, debt, homelessness, post-traumatic stress, depression and disability are all issues that can affect our members of our Armed Forces community. Many of these problems only become apparent when an individual has to leave their life in the Forces and join ‘Civvy Street’. SSAFA is committed to helping our brave men and women overcome these problems, and rebuild their lives.
