Our objective is to help share passion, knowledge and skills from our cigar partners and educate UK Cigar Retailers by showcasing the quality of the New World artisan skills of tobacco growing and cigar production, from seed to smoke.
Our style of education insists that we immerse ourselves into local heritages and cultures whilst we taste high quality cigars, sample locally produced beverages and eat local delicacies.
The maiden Tor-Tour in 2016 took us to Nicaragua, the land of fire and water. A group of a dozen retailers from all corners of the UK joined us on an adventure of a lifetime that started in Miami, before spending 5 days in Esteli, the cigar capital of the world and Granada in the south.
From this very first trip we have been able to learn and improve on each journey, ensuring that each trip is never to be forgotten experience that will live long in the memories of every Tor-Tourer.
Each retailer receives a certificate, badge and their own blended cigars at the end of each trip to confirm they have successfully participated and completed a full training course on the Cigar making process and blending seminars.
Since our inaugural Tor – Tor in 2016, we have hosted trips to Nicaragua on two other occasions, and one each in the Dominican Republic and Mexico. We look forward to welcoming new UK retailers to our next Tor-Tour, planned for 2021.
We would like to thank our cigar and rum partners who have opened their doors to us and made us feel so very welcome, but most of all, have shared their love and passion of cigar manufacturing and their countries with us:-
