First J. Cortès & Oliva event in Turkey

First J. Cortès & Oliva event in Turkey

August 30. When Purosever Club recently organized it’s 49th Herf in Istanbul they invited Thomas Gryson, export manager and travel retail coordinator at J. Cortès & Oliva Cigars, to attend. This was the first time anyone from this company participated in an event in Turkey.

“Purosever was established as an online forum ten years ago and we mostly have events in İstanbul, Eskişehir and Ankara,” board member, Çağdaş Çıldır, says. “The venue was right next to Bosphorus and we arrived by boat.”

During the event Gryson gave a small presentation about the company and the participants all got to try a Oliva Serie V Double Toro.
