El Martillito: Lessons from the hammer | Tobacconist magazine

www.tobacconistmagazine.com [cached]

"For us, the hammer is a symbol of hard work, perseverance and a commitment to certain philosophies on how to do things and taking pride in what you do," explains Jorge Padron, president of Padron Cigars.
"As soon as he sees the tobacco in Nicaragua, he falls in love with it," explains Jorge. "It was basically overnight," says Jorge. The only source of tobacco used in Padron Cigars, the tobacco that had made Padron a dependable, consistent brand, was from the volcanic-enriched soil of Nicaragua. Jorge started working for the company during that time, and he struggled to understand why his father would let Padron "just disintegrate" like that. He told his father, "We need to get tobacco from somewhere else. "We went back to Nicaragua in 1990, and it was a disaster," Jorge says with a subtle smile, reflecting a relief of challenges past. "We had one warehouse, one farm left. We had to start everything from scratch. It took us from 1990 to 2013 to get back to where we were in 1985. And now this year we're going to produce 7 million cigars." That same philosophy is also evident in how Padron creates and manufactures its cigars. "Vertical integration is something we've been stressing for years," Jorge explains. Jorge adds, "Over the years we've been fortunate enough to be able to go even further. "I think we're a company that has a unique product offering, in that we offer all types of products at different price points and profiles," says Jorge. "It was interesting, to say the least," Jorge says with a laugh. "I won't tell you what he said, but obviously he didn't initially embrace the concept because that's not the cigar he would normally smoke. But he's come to trust me, my sisters and my brothers. If I were to have suggested this 27 years ago, he would have told me to take a hike. Now, he considers it." Damaso, named after Jose's grandfather who immigrated to Cuba from the Canary Islands in the late 1880s, was created to get more people to try Padron and reach that consumer that may have shied away from the company's reputation for strong cigars. "We recognized we were missing out every time a consumer walked into a retail shop and requested a milder cigar," Jorge says. "I want Padron to be in the equation of products that are offered at all levels. So Damaso is a milder cigar but with a lot of flavor. And it's made with the same consistency and complexity of our other cigars. So it's not geared toward the typical smoker of Padron that prefers full-body cigars. It's a product that will appeal to people that would not normally smoke a Padron. Before, when a customer walked into a shop looking for a milder cigar, there wasn't a Padron to offer. Now you do." Jorge says they're producing Damaso in small production and are ready to see how the market reacts, open to hearing back from consumers. "For me, this is a marathon, not a sprint," he explains.
