In an effort to reduce confusion and illuminate the famed Robaina name, White Hat has changed its name to La Familia Robaina. Over the next month, all things White Hat will be transitioned over to La Familia Robaina.
La Familia Robaina will be attending the 2019 IPCPR Tradeshow at Booth 3859.
“After fielding questions for the past 3.5 years about the relationship between the Robaina’s and White Hat, Hirochi and I felt it made sense to rename the company. The Robaina name is steeped in tobacco and tradition. When people are considering our cigars, we want them to know that there are 175 years of experience and tradition that have gone into every one.” – Spence Drake
The Robaina family has been growing tobacco on the same farm near Pinar Del Rio, Cuba since 1845. In 2010 the Robaina’s expanded their operation by partnering with growers in Nicaragua and Ecuador. The family is known for growing some of the best tobacco in the world.
“Our family has always cherished the fact that we have been indirectly involved in so many celebrations of other families. Since the 1800’s our tobacco has been enjoyed at weddings, the birth of children, or the first time a father and son enjoy a cigar together. This is not something we take for granted, it’s something that we take great pride in and hope to continue for years to come.” – Hirochi Robaina
