Q&A: An Interview With Jorge Padrón
The president of Padrón Cigars Inc. speaks about his Nicaraguan cigar brand.
From the Print Edition:
Gen. Tommy Franks, Nov/Dec 03
(continued from page 13)
Q: You have three brands now—
A: We have one brand: Padrón (laughs). We have three lines.
Q: OK, one brand with three lines. Do you have any plans on the horizon to introduce something else?
A: You can never say no. There's always the possibility that we'll develop new products. But as I said earlier, we're very conservative by nature, and that's not something we do just to bring something out to the marketplace. Now next year we have our 40th anniversary; with the inventories of tobaccos we have, it's not out of the realm of possibility that we could do something if we wanted to. That's not to say that it's going to happen, but it could happen.
Q: Anniversaries are very important to your family, right?
A: Absolutely. The Padrón Anniversary came out on our 30th anniversary, my dad's 1926 came out for his 75th birthday. Now, who knows?
