Cigar Roller Tour Confirmed for the UK

Cigar Roller Tour Confirmed for the UK

News Back

Hunters & Frankau have confirmed the dates of the first cigar roller tour of 2011. Señor Yoel Ulacia Diaz is scheduled to arrive in the UK on 5th May and will attend various events and Habanos Specialists across Britain until he returns to Cuba at the end of July.

Señor Diaz is a 9th grade torcedor (cigar roller), the highest achievable grade within the Cuban industry structure, meaning he is capable of crafting any size or shape cigar within the Habanos S. A. portfolio.

He began his career in 1998 as a student roller at the world famous Partagás factory and, in recognition of his outstanding talent, he attained his 9th grade status in just two years.
He remains with the Partagás factory to this day but is now a Maestro de Calidad, or Master of Quality Control, and supervises the work of some 350 cigar rollers within one of Cuba’s most iconic cigar factories.

For the opportunity to visit one of Yoel’s upcoming events, watch him roll genuine Cuban cigars and even have the chance to purchase one for yourself, please visit our Upcoming Event section and view his itinerary. There will be a second roller arriving shortly after Yoel’s tour ends.
