Christian Eiroa founded CLE Cigar Company in July, 2012. Although he began his career in 1989 in the shipping department for Caribe Imported Cigars, it was not until 1995 when he finished his studies and earned his MIBA that he and his father Julio Eiroa, decided to increase Christian's involvement in cigars. That company, Camacho Cigars, was sold to Davidoff in 2008. Today, Christian is back in the business with CLE, Asylum and the Wynwood Cigar Factory where his office is located (Wynwood is Miami's art district). It is all about the passion of doing what he loves. Christian enjoys golfing and fishing as well as watching baseball.
