The Story or “La Historia” of the Perez-Carrillo family bears the influence of the women in the family that have been the inspiration to the Master himself. For Ernesto his driving inspiration was his mother and daughter as depicted on the cigar bands. The former while in the tobacco fields of Cuba and the latter in Ernesto’s home of Miami, Florida.
Traditions are the roots to maintain a thriving culture. EP Carrillo culture embodies this foundation through family, quality, and character at the core of every premium cigar they produce. For four generations, the family cultivated and refined their mastery through heritage, precision, and craft.
Cigar Aficionado sums it up well, “Achievements like this are the confluence of skill, talent and experience. In his 50-year career, Perez-Carrillo has owned factories big and small, worked for a major corporation, and has been making cigars on his own terms for the last decade. Now a two-time Cigar of the Year recipient, the man who’s done it all in the cigar business has just done it again.”
In the cigar world many consider E.P. Carrillo to be the king of cigars in Miami. One of the most highly respected cigar rollers in the city, and the man responsible for the original La Gloria Cubana cigar as well as the El Rico Habano brand.
