Hi Gregory,

We do not use any wheat at all.  Go ahead and enjoy some fine Alec Bradley cigars!

All my best,



I reconfirmed the fact that there was no gluten in the paste and he said you are correct.

Hello, Im writing this email in regards to the ingredients
of the glue that you use to roll their cigars. Due to my
Celiac I cannot have wheat and I know industry standard is
using vegetable gum (wheat bases) to roll cigars. I was
curious to know if you use vegetable gum or maybe something
gluten free such as fruit pectin? Luckily a few other places
such as Alec Bradley are gluten free and I'm hoping maybe
yours will be too! Thank you for your time, Gregory





There is no glue used to roll our cigars and technically are gluten free in that respect. All of our cigars are hand-rolled and aged naturally.

Thank you,

Good morning thank you for writing to us! 

I am not sure what the ingredients are in the substance we use on our cigars
but I believe it's called bermocoll.

I have received numerous ones that say they are not gluten free.. So I feel confident that these ones are good to go.

I got a response from a rep at J.C. Newman cigars and she stated  that although their glue is not certified gluten free, they do not contain any wheat, rye or barley. They have several celiacs on staff who smoke their cigars. 

what's up, charlie - i am a bbs sister ❤️ 

i smoke a swisher sweet from time to time - the ones with the plastic tips.  i never really researched them because the plastic tip is the only thing that's touching my mouth/ aka, i'm not eating them, lolz.  i have ever smoked a cuban at a wedding, a little too much merriment decision.  :D  


misdiagnosed for 25 years!
