Mexico has enacted the toughest anti-tobacco law in the world. The law came into force on January 15, 2023 and it applies to pretty much any public area. The only legal place to smoke tobacco in Mexico is inside private homes or private outdoor spaces.
Orígenes is the name of a new cigar series introduced by Turrent at the Intertabac trade show. The line sports tobacco cured with a new technique developed by Alejandro Turrent.
In order to uncover the secret formula of the innovative Mexican cigar brand Casa Turrent, we meet Alejandro Turrent, mastermind behind the product, and embark on searching for clues together.
Ever since the 1800s, the San Andrés Valley in the state of Veracruz has been the center of tobacco in Mexico. Today it is what Estelí is to Nicaragua and Santiago to the Dominican Republic.
The Turrent portfolio will now receive some remodelling and two new line additions with Serie 1942 and 1973, launching in December 2015.
In this Series we are presenting the most important cultivable areas for tobacco growing. For this issue our Cigar Journal Reporter Sebastian Zimmel, traveled to Mexico.
