At the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show, a new company called Sacra Folium Cigar Company will make its debut. The company is ambitiously starting with five new cigar blends. Given pending FDA regulations taking place on August 8th will require all new blends to go through an regulatory approval process, it isn’t too much of a surprise a new company is going in with a large number of blends.

Sacra Folium was founded by Boris Grossman. Grossman used to work on Wall Street, but in 2008 Grossman left to found Matador Cigars. Today Matador Cigars has several retail locations. Like many retail owners, Grossman has now decided to venture into the world of brand owner.

To make his blends, Grossman turned to Fabrica de Tobaccos Raices Cubanas where is is working with  Hugo Endemaño to make his blends.
