0052 - Willy Herrera (Drew Estate master blender) and Jeff Borysiewicz (Corona Cigar, FSG)

At July’s IPCPR trade show in Las Vegas, senior editor Nicolás Jiménez had a chance to sit down with Drew Estate master blender Willy Herrera and Jeff Borysiewicz, owner of Orlando’s Corona Cigar as well as Florida Sun Grown, the Central Florida tobacco growing operation whose tobaccos have made their way into various premium cigars, including the eponymous FSG brand made by Drew Estate.

They talked about Willy’s blending process, what’s new in the Drew Estate portfolio, how the relationship between Drew Estate and FSG came together, and what it means to Jeff to produce premium cigar tobacco in his own backyard.
