BACKGROUND: The Eiroa family has a long and storied history in the cigar industry, dating back to before the Cuban Revolution as tobacco growers and then in Honduras as tobacco growers and cigar producers.
When Christian Eiroa left Camacho to launch Tabacalera Unidas, his first priority was to get the company off the ground and to build a solid footing, but once that was settled he was able to begin the process of creating the cigar that would bear the Eiroa family name. Ultimately, he went back to his roots, finding the perfect Honduran tobaccos to make a cigar that is now called Eiroa.
The Eiroa by Christian Eiroa is being manufactured in the company’s brand new El Aladino factory in Honduras. Each exquisitely crafted cigar pays tribute to the Eiroa family, a cigar family with a legacy 100 years in the making.
FEATURED LIBATION: Martell Cordon Bleu
Martell Cordon Bleu is the cognac for true connoisseurs and has acquired legendary status since its creation by Edouard Martell in 1912. Its distinctive taste, characterized by a predominance of eaux-de-vie from the Borderies growth, and its classy bottle design make it a classic unequalled in the world of cognac.
In the Cordon Bleu, we have a unique cognac in the XO category. The different parts of the blend have been aged for between 10 and 25 years, well beyond the regulatory six.
