Cuban Cigar Roller Arrives in the UK
Hunters & Frankau welcomed Mr Anibal Delgado Gonzalez to the UK this week. He is here to conduct a twelve week tour of the UK to demonstrate the fine art of a Cuban cigar roller.
Hailing from Havana, Anibal has been a torcedor (cigar roller) for more than twenty years. He is classified as a 9th grade roller – the highest achievable and able to roll every vitola (size) within the Habanos SA portfolio. He began his career in 1985 at the Romeo y Julieta factory but now plies his trade at La Corona in the heart of Havana.
In 2000 he was selected to participate in rolling demonstrations around the world and so far has visited Guatamala, Argentina, Uruguay, Bahrain, Greece, Chile and China.
For the chance to visit one of Anibal’s upcoming events, watch him roll Cuban cigars and even have the chance to purchase one for yourself, please visit the ‘Event’ section of this site to view his itinerary.
