It was in 2000 that Christian made his mark with the launching of the Camacho Corojo. Although the cigar was extraordinary, it was the marketing behind it that made all the difference. He began to host all of his customers in Honduras where the entire process was explained week after week for seven years. When Camacho Cigars was purchased in 2008, Christian remained with the company for the duration of the transition until 2011 when he decided to venture on his own.
In July of 2012 Christian once again returned to the cigar industry with the launch of C.L.E. Cigar Company.
When he returned from Korea, Angel Oliva invited him to go to Honduras to help process and cure the tobacco grown by Tino Argudin, an explorer whose mission was to find tobacco in other countries to replace the Cuban seed which had fallen under the embargo. Honduras and especially the Jamastran Valley were close to Angel Oliva’s heart because it was the only tobacco he had found to be close enough to the unavailable Cuban leaf.
It was in 1997 that Julio began to grow the famous Authentic Corojo seed again at a farm called Sta. Sta. Inez del Corojo, owned by a Mr. Diego Rodriguez
In 2015 Julio began his newest business venture with Aladino Cigars, which are rolled out of the Las Lomas Factory in the Jamastran Valley.
