CEO, General Cigar Company
Marvin R. Shanken
From the Print Edition:
Demi Moore, Autumn 96

(continued from page 3)

CA: But unlike Windsor Shade, you're vertically integrated.

Cullman: Yes, in that we use a lot of the tobacco we grow.

CA: And what you don't use for yourself, the higher quality tobacco, you sell primarily to the English market?

Cullman: Right.

CA: It's not sold to other cigar manufacturers?

Cullman: We sell a little bit, but not a significant portion.

CA: And what portion of Oliver Thrall's crop do you end up with?

Cullman: He makes offers of tobacco to us, and we buy what we like for Macanudo.

CA: Between these two operations, you're basically able to get what you need for Macanudo and other cigars. Of course, Partagas has a Cameroon wrapper, so it's not part of these operations?

Cullman: No, it's grown in Africa.
