Much anticipated by French enthusiasts, the Quai d’Orsay Robusto Diplomatico Regional Edition was launched Thursday evening in the salons of the Cuban Embassy in Paris. With his team, Antoine Bathie, director of the division of Seita cigars, gathered a hundred privileged, including his Excellency Hector Igarza, Cuban ambassador to France, His Excellency Jean Mendelson, Goodwill Ambassador for COP 21 and former ambassador of France in Cuba. All three recalled the strong historical and cultural ties between both countries.

The famous journalist and TV host Nikos Aliagas, exposed for the occasion and for the very first time a series of black and white photographs, “Faces of Cuba”.

The brand Quai d’Orsay, launched in 1974 by request of the Ministry of Economy Valéry Giscard-d’Estaing, is known as “the most French of Cuban brands”, though its portfolio has been significantly reduced through the years.

A journalist since 1995, Guillaume Tesson wrote for various newspapers and magazines. From 2005 to 2013 he worked for the French cigar magazine L’Amateur de Cigare as a reporter, member of the tasting committee, and eventually as editor in chief for the iPad version. His passion for cigars led him to write two books, Cigares (Hachette Pratique) and Le Petit Larousse des Cigares (Larousse). Guillaume lives in Paris and, for Cigar Journal, has his finger on the pulse of everything that goes on in France that has to do with cigars.
