Ventura Cigar Company PSyKo Seven the Summer 2019 Swiss tour



Ventura Cigar Company + Oettinger Davidoff AG team up for events featuring PSyKo Seven




July 2019 – Mark your calendars for a good time – PSyKo Seven Cigars are going on tour in Switzerland this summer, along with Ventura Cigar Company icons, Michael Giannini and Rick Charles.

The duo will be working with PSyKo Seven’s European Distributor, Oettinger Davidoff AG to showcase the cigars and Ventura Cigar’s cool, California lifestyle at a series of events in Switzerland, starting with Big Smoke in Zurich on July 6.

“This is a bit of a coming out party for PSyKo Seven,” says Giannini, General Manager at Ventura Cigar Company.

“The cigars have only been available for less than a year in Switzerland, so it’s time to make some introductions.

Share some stories, get to know our consumers and our tobacconists over a few smokes. Rick and I are really looking forward to it.”





Big Smoke kicks off the events on July 6.

A festival that celebrates the premium cigar with food, drinks, and sampling opportunities, Michael Giannini and Rick Charles will be on-hand at the Oettinger Davidoff AG booth, along with Patrick Hurd, Chief Sales Officer at Kretek International, Inc. and a big force behind the PSyKo Seven brand.

The team will be greeting the over 350 attendees with PSyKo Seven smokes and swag.

Big Smoke tickets are still available and can be purchased at

Giannini and Charles continue the PSyKo Seven Swiss tour with events held at select premium tobacconists.

At these events, we hope to really reach the Swiss consumer, have some fun, and get them to ‘Embrace the Madness’ with us. This is just the beginning.”
