Alec Cuevas has been named Director of Operations of Casa Cuevas Cigars. Alec is the son of company president Luis Cuevas Jr. and grandson of its master blender Luis Cuevas Sr. Alec is the fifth generation Cuevas to join the family business.
“My father and I couldn’t be prouder of Alec,” says Luis Jr. in a press release announcing Alec’s hiring. “The Casa Cuevas Cigars brand is first and foremost a family business and we look forward to watching Alec grow with us.”
Alec is a Miami native who grew up around tobacco. He spent his summers in the Dominican Republic with his grandfather at the Cuevas’ cigar factory, Las Lavas. His passion for tobacco was cemented when he smoked his first cigar, given to him by his grandfather during a New Year’s celebration. Alec later went on to work at the Neptune Cigar Super Store in Miami, while attending Florida International University. While at Neptune, he smoked every day and tried as many cigars as he could to develop his palate with the intention of one day joining the family business.
“My father has created a culture that makes the Casa Cuevas Cigars brand unique. Our motto, ‘We make cigars from our casa, to yours,’ is because cigars unify people from different backgrounds, job positions and the like. My father, grandfather and I have an immense adoration for what we create, and an immense admiration for other wonderful brands within the industry of tobacco. I am proud to join my father and grandfather and look forward to help the Casa Cuevas Cigars grow.”
