Just one week after bidding a fond farewell to Yoel Ulacia Diaz, we have the pleasure of welcoming a dear friend back to these shores. Señora Berta Corzo Thorpe has arrived in the UK this morning to conduct a three month tour demonstrating the fine art of the torcedora (cigar roller). This is Berta’s third visit to the UK and this time her tour will include England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Gibraltar.
Berta has worked in the cigar industry for over 28 years and has achieved the highest grade within the Cuban classification system. This means she is able to roll any vitola (size) within the Habanos portfolio. She currently holds the prestigious position of Head of Quality Control at El Laguito (the Cohiba factory), where she has been for the past eight years.
Everyone at the Cigar Smokers Club is eagerly anticipating the chance to enjoy one of her freshly rolled cigars. A rare pleasure and one not to be missed out on.
