Introducing Hamlet to the UK Market
No sooner have we bid a fond farewell to Anibal Gonzalez than we are fortunate enough to be welcoming a second Cuban cigar roller to these shores.
Señor Hamlet Jaime Parede is scheduled to arrive on Thursday 5th August and shall conduct a tour of the UK lasting for three months.
Hamlet is classified as a 9th grade roller – the highest achievable grade and is able to roll every vitola (size and shape) within the Habanos SA portfolio.
His career a torcedor began nearly twenty years ago at the legendary Partagas Factory in the heart of Havana. During his time there he rose to the position of Second Chief of the Rolling Room before moving on to a high profile role in various Tobacconists in and around Havana.
In 2000 he was selected to conduct promotional tours around the world for Habanos SA and since this time he has visited Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Australia, Japan, China, Macau, South Korea, Indonesia, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Canada.
When he is not travelling he is based in the world famous Romeo y Julieta shop.
