Marcia Weaver, who trained with veteran Cuban tabaquero Angel Garcia, opened the Boston Cigar Factory with partner Jack Keating back in the late 1990s. Today, more than a decade later, Boston Cigar is entertaining guests throughout New England, clear across the country, and we have even been invited to roll cigars globally as well.
Throughout the years skills have been finely honed and advanced techniques have been applied. No longer tied to a brick and mortar store, we have the ability to bring the art of the cigar directly to you at your location enhancing any party or event. Boston Cigar Factory is now a ‘family’ business and two daughters have joined the fold as tabaqueras.
“As a family business we care about all of our customers and continually strive to meet their expectations. We communicate with each of our clients often and directly to ensure satisfaction. Most importantly, we truly understand that your special event is often a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we want to play a memorable part. Ultimately, great cigars are our business, but entertainment is our joy.”
In 1990, Angel Garcia left Santa Clara Cuba with eleven other men in a handmade raft to escape Fidel Castro and live in the United States.
Yes, as long as you specify full-bodied, medium, or mild for the filler and natural or maduro for the wrapper. We can also customize special flavors like vanilla, chocolate, cognac, or whatever you have in mind.
We recommend you book your event as soon as possible, as there are only so many dates available in any season. This will ensure that you get the exact time period and date that you wish.
Yes, in fact English is their first language. Our tabaqueros are pleased to answer your questions and describe their craft while rolling. We find that almost everyone is curious about the rolling process whether they smoke cigars or not.
We travel anywhere. We are easy to work with and can arrange the details to your specifications.
Typically, entertainment lasts up to two hours or so. We charge a flat rate for rolling, and in some circumstances go on into the evening with no additional charge.
As soon as the wrapper dries—which takes minutes—you can smoke the cigar. It’s a wonderful and uniquely flavorful experience to smoke a freshly rolled cigar. There is a naturally sweeter taste. We make all of our cigars to order, so everyone gets to taste a freshly rolled cigar.
We do offer standard labels. However, we also provide complimentary design services and have a talented in-house design team who can help create a custom label to your specifications, if you so desire. We can incorporate logos and special color schemes to fit any theme.
