Q & A: Who is Don Pepin Garcia?

Q.

A.
In 2007, many cigar makers enjoyed the limelight for their incredible handmade cigars; however, none of them have a history quite as unique as Jose 'Don Pepin' Garcia. Born in Baez, Cuba, Pepin began working with tobacco at the young age of 11. He quickly fell in love with the art of cigar rolling and worked in Cuba from 1963 until 2001. During this time Pepin perfected his craft, earning the title of 'Class 8 Roller,' the highest achievement a Cuban torcedere can achieve. He also achieved the rank of Master Blender and won awards for his advanced rolling abilities, which astonished not only his superiors but the entire cigar community of Cuba. In 2001, Pepin left Cuba to open his own factory, El Rey de los Habanos, in Miami, Florida. Here, he continues to produce some of the best cigars on the market. Due to heavy demand, Pepin opened a second factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, in 2007.
