Award-winning lifestyle writer NICK HAMMOND takes us on a quarter-century journey across the planet, from the sun-scorched plains of Africa to the teeming rainforests of Borneo; from whisky tasting in the Japanese Alps to diving with Great White Sharks off Gaansbai.

Part picture postcard from a lifetime of roving reporting, part homage to a handrolled masterpiece, this luxurious, journal-style hardback book recounts a series of extraordinary tales – each one linked through the years by the love of a good cigar.

Around The World in 80 Cigars: The Travels of An Epicure is unlike any travelogue you’ve ever read. The colourful and evocative prose amuses, delights and educates and will enthrall both the cigar lover and the epicurious alike. It’s illustrated throughout with drawings from acclaimed artist Sam Bridge and is available to order now.

“A brilliant read and an inspiration to get out and see the world (with a cigar of course!). Each chapter is irreverent, educational and laugh out loud funny.”

Eddie Sahakian, Davidoff of London

‘A colourful description of travel in some of the world’s most testing and beautiful places.’

The Earl of Carnarvon, Highclere Castle.

In a bid to keep you entertained during these trying times, Nick has ramped up his latest project; welcome to Around The World In 80 Cigars – The Podcast. A flying visit to special people and places, this new pod will enlighten you with interesting folk, beautiful and inspirational places, unusual food, drink, jobs and craftsmanship – and all of it trailed by the aromatic waft of a fine cigar.
