Cigars celebrating the anniversary of an event are nothing new. Most cigars tend to do with how old a company is or how old a person is, but every year, there seems to be at least one new reason why a company is celebrating. Last year, it was Christian Eiroa celebrating his 20th year in the cigar business.
Eiroa started with his family’s company, Caribe Imported Cigars in 1996. He would work at Caribe, which owned the Camacho and Baccarat brands. In 1998, he was appointed president of the company at the age of 26 and would keep that role until the company was sold to Davidoff in 2008. He remained president of Camacho until 2011 and then a year later, he launched CLE Cigar Co.
