The rollers pick and choose the best wrapper leaves to roll the cigar bunches in. These are sliced by hand with a half-moon-shaped blade called a Chaveta.
Our master rollers then use their magical touch, stretching the wrapper carefully around the body of the bunch, taking immense care to make sure that the leaf is tightly wound around the bunch from head to foot.
“Welcome to the Sagrado Cigar Factory.”
John M. Stewart
Sagrado Cigars, Founder
It’s no secret some of the best cigars in the world are made in the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic possesses the world’s best tobacco farms that can be found all throughout the country, which is why Sagrado Cigars has invested in Dominican tobacco farms that still harvest, plant, cure and roll our premium cigars by hand.
Once harvested, the tobacco will spend another 40 to 60 or more days in a curing barn, where it will spend an approximate month to dry, turning from a vibrant green into a rich dark brown. To remove certain impurities and to pull out the hidden richness of the leaf, cigar tobacco needs fermentation.
In our Dominican factory, you can expect the whole process to be hand bunched and rolled. This is called the Entubar method, which allows for a greater number of filler leaves to be put in a cigar while maintaining the draw.
This is where a tube is made with each individual leaf of a particular cigar blend, prior to bunching all of the leaves together; this assures that the cigar will burn evenly and have a ideal steady air flow.
Once the bunch is made, the worker then covers the tobacco filler with the appropriate binder leaf for that particular cigar. The cigar bunch is then ‘pressed’.
Upon passing the Draw Test, the bunch is passed along to the final stage of making a cigar- the rolling process.
