The Rolling Room
ROLLING THE CIGAR
Once the tobacco is up to our standards it’s finally time to start rolling. Rolling a cigar is the process of constructing the filler, binder, and wrapper into a single form.
SIDE BY SIDE
This process is broken up into two steps: bunching and rolling. Bunchers and rollers sit side by side in teams of two during the construction of each cigar.
Step 1: BUNCHING
First, the bunchers will bunch the filler tobacco within binder leaves. These skilled individuals are personally tasked with the fabrication of every single cigar.
Step 2: DRAW TESTING
From here each cigar is taken through a draw testing machine to guarantee a consistent draw before the wrapper can be applied.
Step 3: ROLLING
After the filler and binder leaves have appropriately adhered together and have passed the draw test, our rollers apply the wrapper. To keep quality and consistency at an unparalleled height, we only allow our rollers to construct 250 cigars per day. Quality isn’t created with numbers and our reputation wasn’t created in a day. Great things take time.
