Cigar company tours

Just wondering if any of the cigar companies give tours of their facilities and show how their product is made or if it is usually a closed door since they don't want to give up any of their secrets to cigar making. Anybody got info on this. If so could you give the names of some of the companies that give tours. Especially those in the states. Thanks. for any help.

    My B&M owner went to the Drew Estate factory and they walked inside, but where they made the Ligas is behind a closed door.

    I'd be ok with that. AJ is on fire and I'd love to see how it all comes together. Plus, his factory in Estelli is in the same area as a few others.

    Interesting... I know several guys who have done the Cigar Safari, or been to Drew Estate otherwise who got all kinds of access to plenty of Liga, info, blending, etc... I mean ***, the blend is practically laid out right there on the box, and Saka himself talks about the specific rolling techniques used for Liga on a regular basis. What's left to hide?

    Is there a CAO facility in Nashville or close by? Thought I heard that somewhere but I could be wrong.

    No, they are headquartered in Richmond, Va now, with the rest of General cigar... but those are just offices. Not anything to see. Other than a few places in Miami and Tampa, there isn't a lot to see as cigars go in America... have to go to Central/South America or the Caribbean.

    El Rey de Los Habanos is in Miami. Like I said, Miami, and Tampa. Not much else in America.

    The forum blend and the Cigar.com forum Nicaragua trip are both things I thought were great ideas but have been impossible to get done. that said, the house in Nicaragua is almost finished and should be ready by spring late in the growing season. I'm not sure how flexible everyone's schedules are in terms of doing things on short notice. Once that house is finished, we should be ready to rock.

    They are both great ideas, but great things don't happen overnight, just look at the OVALS! Hey Alex, how's that man cave of yours coming?

    I would love to go on a trip, but I think next year is more of a reality, I think AJ's factory and the my father factory would be the two best ones to visit
