Last fall, Amy - SBC Founder & Master Clothier, had the pleasure of spending time in Cuba. While there she toured the Alejandro Robaina Tobacco Plantation and was able to see first hand the hard work and delicate craftsmanship that forms each cigar. A newfound interest sparked as she took in the sights of the farm and saw the skills of the workers in action, including a man who had 70 years of rolling experience!
Before leaving, she made sure get a box of Trinidad cigars to bring back to our showroom. We began giving them as gifts to clients, and in the way that a fine cigar or scotch can inspire, conversations began about their go-to places in Pittsburgh to relax with their favorite variety.

Listed below are some of the locations we were frequently recommended to try for ourselves. Let us know in the comments if there’s one that you love and we missed!

When you end up at one of these places, let them know that Samuel Baron Clothiers sent you.
