History of Sovereign cigar
Mr. Brunel, the celebrated engineer, had several narrow escapes with his life; but the most extraordinary accident which befell him was that which occurred while one day playing with his children, and astonishing them by passing a half-sovereign through his mouth out at his ear. Unfortunately, he swallowed the coin, which dropped into his windpipe. The accident occurred on the 3rd of April, 1843, and it was followed by frequent fits of coughing, and occasional uneasiness in the right side of the chest; but so slight was the disturbance of breathing, that it was for some time doubted whether the coin had really fallen into the windpipe.

The very first award was given to the”Sirius” a large steamer in 1838 in 18 days, unfortunately for him dethroned by the”Great Western” the next day by a crossing in 15 days 10 hours and 30 minutes by a ship specially designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, then another the”Great Britain” in 1843, the first boat with an iron hull propelled by a propeller which allowed him to win the trophy during his inaugural voyage in only 14 days! Two boats built by Brunel win the”Blue Ribbon”.
The”Blue Ribbon” is also a wink to another of the most famous double corona and transatlantic, the”Lusitania” of Partagas which in 1907 won the famous cockade by its crossing in 4 days 19 hours and 53 minutes, that is 10 days less than the”Great Britain”, unfortunately its tragic destiny is in the image of the”Titanic”, because….
