Know where to get a great hand rolled cigar while visiting Aruba ? While visiting Aruba we were told not to get carried away trying to smuggle Havana's into the USA, just try Aruban Cigars! In Aruba the Aruhiba Cigar Factory makes the finest quality hand rolled cigars. They sell Havana's also, along with a little alcohol to sip while enjoying a great cigar. But, while in Aruba do as the Arubans do and try an Aruhiba.
"Aruhiba", a new cigar rolled from tobacco grown on the island. This new product, bound to attract attention, was the brainchild of Benjamin Petrochi.In the small, upscale cigar shop he opened June of 2006 next to the "Windmill", he sits, rolling and cutting his Aruban grown tobacco leaves, shaping them into the perfect thickness and length. Petrochi is a man who is passionate about his work. Having sold cigars from other countries for over a decade, six years ago he decided that he wanted to produce his own, from scratch. It is an arduous process, likened more to a labor of love, to produce the kind of cigar connoisseurs desire. Growing tobacco in Aruba is no easy feat and Petrochi has toiled endlessly for the last six years. Petrochi’s tobacco production is relatively small and he does everything himself, much the way things were done years ago. While Petrochi began using his tobacco two years ago to roll cigars for himself, it is just now that the tobacco is ready to be used to produce commercial quality cigars.Tobacco plants require nine months of cultivation. The challenges are many. "It’s not easy in Aruba; you have to contend with the weather and the insects. I have to fight the white flies every day," he said. Despite the bugs, he tries to use as little pesticide as possible.
