Epicurean Cigars started their first limited production cigar in 2012. Owner, Steven Ysidron, left Savinelli to start his own business.
2013 found him becoming part of the House of Emilio. Gary Griffith distributes his cigars now. Emilio also supplies a good portion of the boutique cigars that Cigar Federation sells.
Ysidron started his cigar career working in the Fuente factory, along with his father.
Epicurean only produces 700 boxes of the Gonzo Vintage 2007 per year. The tobacco leaves are aged a full four years before being rolled.
