Federal Cigar's history started in 1921, opening its first store in downtown Portsmouth under the United Tobacco name. With close to 100 years experience as professional tobacconists, Federal Cigar is one of the oldest running cigar shops in America.
More recently, Federal Cigar has expanded to four locations serving all of Southeastern NH, diversifing the business in 2013 by expanding into the vapor & electronic cigarette industry. In 2014, Federal enhanced their customers' experience by incorporating full service cigar bars and separate vape tasting bars in all of four locations.
In 2015, Federal Cigar hired Flylight Media to redesign their website to reflect their growing services, locations, and offerings, while revamping their online cigar store.
