Hamlet goes manly
08 November, 2013

JTI is introducing four limited-edition tins for its cigar brand Hamlet, designed to help retailers grow their cigar profits in the run up to the festive season. Available nationally now, while stocks last, the four 'Manly Knowledge' designs are printed directly inside the inner lids of Hamlet Miniature 10s. The limited-edition tins are designed to build relevance among existing adult smokers while helping to differentiate Hamlet from its key competitors during the festive season. The tins can be identified externally by a 'Limited Edition' motif printed on the outer lid.
