Bright Leaf Cigars
Yannick développe très tôt sa passion pour les cigares : en 1979.
Parce que son grand-père était originaire d’Espagne, il commence son apprentissage notamment avec les cigares cubains. Il s’est senti dès le début fasciné par les cigares et savoir comment les apprécier et connaître leur caractéristique est devenu une de ses passions au même titre que sa quête en recherche de parfums, saveurs et arômes. Après une expérience dans le monde de la gastronomie, Yannick décide de créer sa propre société d’importation et de distribution : Bright Leaf Cigars. Il commence à distribuer des cigares premium du nouveau monde mais aussi des spiritueux tels que le rhum et le whisky !

Andorra | fadv-22
How to get there?
The Principality of Andorra is a country located in the Pyrenees, between France and Spain. The capital, Andorra la Vella, is about a two-hour drive from two major cities such as Barcelona in Spain and Toulouse in France.
The road is the only way to get to the principality of Andorra, the country being served neither by air transport nor by rail transport.
It is still possible to get closer to the borders of Andorra by train or plane, then to take the frequent shuttle buses that allow you to reach Andorra.
The Festival will be held in the town of Soldeu, 20kms from Andorra-La-Vella.
What do you need to enter Andorra?
Andorra’s situation internationally is quite unique. Our country isn’t part of the European Union or the Schengen area, but we do have free movement agreements with our neighbouring countries. That’s why it couldn’t be easier to enter the Principality.
Baron and his team
The Baron company was created in 2017 with the aim of promoting the Art of Living. A true multidisciplinary consulting agency, Baron is sensitive to products that tell a story. Among other things, it aims to bring brands closer to its consumers in order to create timeless moments and immersive experiences. It is only natural that this company has specialized in the world of premium cigars as well as spirits and now wishes to take up a challenge: to create the first festival that showcases Latin American products in Andorra.
Born in Guatemala to a Guatemalan mother and a French father, he grew up with the best of both cultures: the warmth, friendliness and simplicity of Latin America combined with Epicureanism, the culture of good products, the gastronomy and French know-how in terms of luxury. With an experience of ten years for a major player in the world of tobacco in Andorra, he will very quickly become passionate about handmade cigars, especially from little-known regions in Europe (Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Mexico, Honduras , Costa Rica…).
Having a deep love affair with his origins, Christian-Denis and his team now wish to create a space of expression for these Latin American countries in order to be able to put them even more in the spotlight in Europe. With its relational skills and its desire to bring people together, this ambitious project aims to become a benchmark in the field.
