Mr. said: ”Brazilian tobacco holds a special place in my heart. My grandparents saw the value in Brazilian tobacco when they began Cigars as very small operation in 1888, and we have continued the tradition of using this very special tobacco in many of our brands. We feel that the hard working and passionate team at do Brasil will help us increase the awareness of Brazilian tobacco worldwide.”
