Daniel Marshall's award-winning humidors are found in the homes of the biggest names in sports, entertainment, and world affairs. The class, distinction, and style each creation offers have firmly placed Daniel Marshall humidors as the benchmark for all luxury cigar storage solutions.
The Rise of Daniel Marshall
The Daniel Marshall humidor story begins in 1982 when Marshall set out to achieve his goal of becoming a designer for some of the most prestigious luxury goods houses in the world. He introduced his unique designs to Cartier and Dunhill. Dunhill commissioned Marshall to create cigar humidors for the North American market, and soon his creations caught the attention of the top design houses in Europe.
Soon after that, Marshall was designing luxurious specialty wood products for Dunhill, Cartier, Pierre Cardin, Tiffany's, Bijan, Neiman Marcus and more. Marshall's designs would eventually find their way to high-profile personalities such as Tom Cruise, King Hassan II of Morocco, Ronald Reagan, Michael Jackson, Marlon Brando, and Prince Rainier of Monaco, amongst others. This opened the doors to product placement in movies, television, and exclusive contracts with top companies worldwide.
Yet it was not until 1992 that Daniel Marshall would become synonymous with cigar humidors. This was the year the famous Cigar Aficionado magazine emerged and forever changed the face of the cigar industry. Through a successful advertising campaign, showcasing examples of his humidors at events and word of mouth, Daniel Marshall became the talk of industry experts and cigar lovers alike. His humidors immediately began to appear on Best Humidor of the Year and Best Buy lists around the globe.
With the incredible demand for his humidors, Marshall decided to end his run with the luxury design houses and focus only on creating Daniel Marshall-branded humidors. He joined with the Gianni Versace factory to create a line of leather cigar accessories and, over the years, developed a broad range of cigar-related luxury gifts cherished by aficionados everywhere.
Marshall has also partnered with the best cigar makers in the business, including Manuel Quesada, Nestor Plasencia and Carlos Fuente, Jr., to produce a series of top-rated cigars. None of these DM cigars has gained as much attention as the now-legendary Daniel Marshall 24kt Gold cigar, covered in 25 paper-thin layers of 24 Kt Italian gold.
Adding the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Denzel Washington, John Travolta, David Beckham, Jay-Z, and the British Royal Family to his prestigious client list, Daniel Marshall's lasting legacy is firmly in place. So it is that Daniel Marshall humidors have risen to the unparalleled heights where they rest today as some of the most desirable humidors in the world.
