Time to shine a spotlight on a couple more of our fine sponsors for the Chattanooga Tweet-Up, which starts this Friday...
Not only a sponsor but one of our special guests...Matt Booth created the Room 101 brand in 2003 as "THE luxury lifestyle brand for those who demand quality with an edge." He brought that same philosophy and design ethic to the world of cigars two years ago with the original Room 101 release, created and distributed by Camacho Cigars, as well as the LTD Conjura last year and this year's Namakubi and Connecticut cigars, both of which will be available at Burns during the Tweet-Up...at least until they sell out! Because we were able to secure Matt's attendance at the Tweet-Up, Burns will be one of the very first retailers in the country to receive shipment of the Namakubi.
Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, Jr., was a pioneer in the full-bodied cigar craze, with the El Rico Habano recognized as one of the cigars that started it all. After he left his original company, La Gloria Cubana, he started the E.P. Carrillo Cigar Company with his son and daughter, creating a family business that he could pass down to them. In two years, they have produced an amazing array of cigars, including 2 high-end Limited Editions (with a third slated for release soon), 2 lower-priced Short Runs, regular and Maduro versions of the "Core Line," the New Wave Connecticut and the Elencos. Oh, and he is producing the Four Kicks cigar for Crowned Heads, the first time the EPC company has created a cigar under contract for another company.
