History of Cigar Oasis

Cigar Oasis was developed in 1997 by Al Foundos as the first electronic & automatic cigar humidifier for personal humidors.

The expanded product line includes humidification solutions for humidors of every size from desktop to walk-ins, serving consumers and retailers alike. 

In addition to Cigar Humidification, Cigar Oasis now offers a complete line of premium cigar accessories including the best-selling Caliber IV digital hygrometers, Ash-Stay windproof cigar ashtrays, and the newly launched Cigar Essentials brand of cigar cutters, lighters, ashtrays and humidors.
