We welcome to the show for the first time Danny Difabio, owner of "Rodriguez Cigars"! We discuss his family's history in cigars and the importance of Key West as center point for premium tobacco as operations migrated to the U.S. All on this week's episode of "The Hot Ticket"
Founded in 1984, we stand as the oldest cigar manufacturer in the Florida Keys preserving the historical cigar manufacturing industry that began in Key West in 1831. As the years passed new generation of family members have expanded manufacturing operations to Nicaragua and we are proud to be working with some of the finest tobacco in the world. Rodriguez Cigars are exclusively constructed with vintage leaves that have been hand selected, aged and constructed through the traditional Cuban manufacturing process.
