Ferio Tego, a term that loosely translates to “Strike and defend,” is the Herklots family motto that’s found on its coast of arms. In addition to the flagship Ferio Tego brand, the company acquired former brands once owned by Nat Sherman International, including Metropolitan, Timeless, and Epoca premium cigars in addition to the Ancora accessories brand. Through Davidoff, Ferio Tego will begin shipping its products this summer.
In a press release, Herklots, principal and co-managing member of Ferio Tego, commented: “I spent nearly the first half of my career working for Davidoff of Geneva in New York City, and after leaving to join Nat Sherman International, Brendon and I spent the subsequent almost ten years working closely with Davidoff in the manufacturing of our Host and Host Maduro blends, as well as being reciprocal vendors and customers between our respective retail stores. It feels quite fitting to come full circle in a way.”
He went on to say, “This is quite a proud moment; one of excitement and exhilaration but also one of profound gratitude and appreciation. Reflecting over the last year, our lives have been disrupted in unimaginable ways, and yet through all of the tumult, here we are with renewed energy and new opportunities, not only to launch a new brand and company in Ferio Tego, but to also restore and preserve the legacy of Timeless and Metropolitan, which we worked for so long to build.”
