E.P Carrillo is a brand created by Ernesto III and Lissette Carrillo in 2009. They are currently stationed in the Dominican Republic. When the time came to choose a location for the E.P. Carrillo factory, Ernesto knew exactly where it needed to be located. In April 2009, he signed a lease on a 40,000 square foot, stand-alone building in Santiago’s Zona Franca, and immediately began the construction of his dream factory, which he named Tabacalera La Alianza. Here is where the tobacco is fermented, aged, hand-made, and packaged under the supervision of Ernesto. Spread across 12 rolling tables, experienced cigar-rollers are in essence re-learning their craft as they are trained to roll cigars the “Cuban way” – the cigars are beautifully finished with a triple-cap method. Ernesto Perez-Carrillo’s achievements have been driven largely by an insatiable desire to understand the intricacies of tobacco from all over the world. Ever since their first launch on the market, their cigars have taken the industry by storm. Three of their blends have consistently placed within the top 5 highest rated cigar in Cigar Aficionado. E.P. Carrillo consistently provides customers with a diverse portfolio of blends and sizes, which will satisfy even the most discerning cigar smoker.
