So here we are; up and running once again, thank the Gods.
Society in general is getting back into gear and Sautter is no different. The Mount Street store opened its doors last week and among the first through them was the British Heavyweight boxer Derek ‘Del Boy’ Chisora, who pulled up a chair in the Sautter socially distanced outside seating area and enjoyed a smoke with his pals.
I wonder what the cigar world will look like post-Corona? Hopefully those terraces and lounges large enough will be allowed to re-open, given that the need to socially distance looks likely to be with us for months to come.
So much has changed in such a short space of time. It’s discombobulating, for sure, but it’s also strangely exciting; to see, for example, how nature has poured seamlessly back in to fill the void that we have left in public spaces.
So how are you faring, Sautter family? We are neck-deep in lockdown and with little sign yet of any glimmer of light at the end of a very dark, very dangerous tunnel.
So here we are. Lockdown. In scenes which would have seemed apocalyptic and simply unbelievable just a month ago, seemingly the entire world is banged up indoors as we try to wait out Corona.
