The demonstration begins with the history of tobacco, where the best leaves come from, and why you blend certain leaves together to make the award winning Graycliff cigars. Once you've become a connoisseur, you'll sample a variety of world renowned rums from the Bahamas's own Bacardi to the other Caribbean rums- Mount Gay and Barbacourt, and many more.
The Graycliff Cigar Company began production in January 1997 in Nassau, The Bahamas. What then began as a single roller in the restaurant entrance way has now expanded to an award winning boutique Cigar Company with 16 master rollers, each an expert in their various format.
Graycliff Cigar Company's original blend- The Graycliff- was blended by the late Master Torcedore Avelino Lara. Once Fidel Castro's personal roller, Lara was famous for his creations at the El Laguito Factory outside of Havana, where he created blends for Cohiba, Davidoff, among others.
Since Lara's retirement in 2000, Enrico Garzaroli and Paolo Garzaroli have collaborated on creating all of the new blends manufactured at the award- winning Graycliff Cigar Company from the Graycliff Professionlae to the more affordable lines: Cabinet Selection, G2 and Bahiba (available only in The Bahamas). Each blend is created to please the palate of different cigar smokers- from the buttery Emerald to the smooth and silky Chateau Grand Cru and powerful Espresso.
Graycliff Cigars' numerous awards include: France's Club Cigare's 2001 Cigar of the Year Award; The Robb Report's Best of the Best of 2003 for the Crystal, the Espresso in 2004 and the Chateau Grand Cru in 2006 and many accolades from Top25Cigars.com including Best Boutique Cigar Company.
