Cigar Roller arrives in the UK

News Back

Hunters & Frankau is delighted to welcome Lázaro Collazo, the first Cuban torcedor (cigar roller) of 2014, to the UK.  Every year Hunters & Frankau invite two roller to the UK to spend three months touring the country and demonstrating the skill and technique that is required to produce a Habanos.

Lázaro Collazo began his career as a torcedor (cigar roller) in the Provincia Habana Factory in 1998 and remarkably, in just three years, he had gone on to achieve the highest possible ranking within the categories defined by the Cuban Cigar industry. This means he is capable of rolling any shape or size of cigar within the entire Habanos S.A portfolio. Furthermore, with the variety of tobacco available to him here in the UK, he is also able to blend a cigar to any cigar smokers taste.

Since 2007 Lázaro has worked with the Quality Control Department where his keen attention to detail combined with his in-depth personal experience has made him a huge success. Naturally he also retains all of the skills of the one of the best cigar rollers Cuba has to offer today.
