EMS - ENGLISH MARKET SELECTION
EMS stands for ‘English Market Selection’, a description used in Cuba for over a century to identify the quality of cigars designated for the British market. It is the cornerstone of the UK’s long established reputation as a world centre for the finest Havanas.
Hunters & Frankau introduced the EMS Stamp in 1993 to mark the quality and authenticity of Havanas sold in Britiain. They are applied to all boxes and packs of Havanas that have passed
a UK quality inspection.
In 1997 it was decided to change the colour of the stamps annually as an additional security measure. All Havanas selected for sale in the UK domestic market bear the EMS stamp.
The EMS Guarantee:
Every box has come directly from Habanos S.A. in Cuba to Hunters & Frankau.
Every box has been shipped and stored by experts. Every box has passed a UK quality check.
All UK Duties have been paid.
Every box carries correct UK health warnings.
The EMS stamp is an important safeguard against the growing tide of counterfeit Havanas that find their way onto the world market.
