Tor Imports – the leading UK importer, distributor, sales, and trade marketing arm for premium cigar makers from Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Honduras, and Mexico – has appointed Ricardo Carioni as their Chief Operating Officer, effective immediately.
Star of Frasier and Cheers, Kelsey Grammer, scooped the top prize at the Snow Queen Cigar Smoker of the Year Awards held at London’s Boisdale of Canary Wharf.
