We love creating cigars with unique tobacco. So a few years ago, when we heard a story about a photographer taking photos of tobacco farmers around the world, it naturally piqued our interest.
She had been in Brazil, the story went, taking shots of the tobacco for CAO Brazilia, when one of the farmers told her that to find some really unique leaves, she should journey into the Amazon.
So she did. And there, in the heart of the rainforest, she found a rare, small batch of tobacco called ‘Braganca’.
When we got a sample of it, we knew we had to build a cigar around it -- a cigar that would become Amazon Basin.
