The Eiroa family have been harvesting and extending their roots for over 100 years and 3 generations within the cigar industry. The Eiroa family farm in Honduras is one of the most technologically advanced tobacco farms in the world.
Probably the biggest mark that Christian has made on the world of cigars is his predilection for Corojo tobacco. Christian has led the tobacco variety into a new heyday, and with his brands, Eiroa, CLE and Asylum, he is extremely successful in his business. Cigar connoisseurs will also recognise that Christian created and developed Camacho into one of the most well-known and renounced cigar brands before it was sold to Oettinger Davidoff over 10 years ago.
Asylum 13 is a brand that partners Tom Lazuka and Christian Eiroa, and is best known for stretching the definition of what constitutes a large ring gauge cigar. Whereas other cigarmakers stay around the 60 ring gauge range, the lines in the Asylum portfolio are known for bulbous smokes that reach upwards of 70 and 80 ring gauge. Produced in Nicaragua, the cigars use tobaccos from Nicaragua and Honduras.
