News Back

Yoel Ulacia Diaz’s tour of the UK has come to an end. He rolled his final cigar on Sunday 24th at the CLA Gamefair and is scheduled to return to Cuba on Wednesday 27th July.

During his time in the UK Yoel visited many of the leading Havana Specialists in the UK and attended a lot of outdoor events such as Royal Bath & West, Goodwood festival of Speed and the C.L.A Gamefair. He now returns to his family in Havana and his position of Maestro de Calidad, or Master of Quality Control.

During the three months of his tour it is estimated he rolled somewhere in the region of two-thousand cigars and produced them in practically every vitola, including some very specific one of shapes and sizes for various discerning customers.

Yoel is the first of two Cuban cigar rollers scheduled to tour the UK this year and we expect to welcome his colleague and compatriot, Berta Corza Thorp back to these shores at the start of August. Many of you will remember Berta from her time in the UK in 2009 and be keen to join us in welcoming her back.

During his tour Yoel has been an exemplary ambassador for his country, his industry and, above all, the art of the cigar rolling. He takes with him our sincere gratitude and best wishes for the future.

Below is a short clip of Yoel rolling a Robsuto during his time at Havana House.
