‘I came into contact with the tobacco industry for the first time in the early 1990s. I completed extensive training in the field and opened my own business in 2004. Thanks to my love of all things sensory, I quickly discovered that cigars are the heart of a wide range of speciality products that are synonymous with infinite indulgence. The result was ‘Maduro’. Our trusting customers have been loyal to our brand from the start and have helped us continue on this journey by enjoying our products as much as we do.
There are many things we don’t know – but we know a lot about pleasure. We are passionate about cigars, whiskey, rum, grappa, coffee and, of course, the right implements to go with them.’
Jörg Stofer, owner and CEO
