2022 Florida Barn Smoker
For almost a century, Florida was home to the cultivation of tobacco intended for use in premium cigars but by the 1970s, the local industry died out. Three decades later, premium cigar tobacco growing in Florida was resurrected with the advent of Florida Sun Grown tobacco, which is cultivated on a 20-acre farm in Clermont. Learn the history and the challenge of reviving Florida cigar tobacco growing and how Drew Estate incorporates Florida Sun Grown tobacco into its new 20 Acre Farm super-premium cigars.
The 2022 Florida Barn Smoker will begin with the DE25 Exclusive Pre-Party on Friday night, May 13, which is open only to those who purchase a DE25 Exclusive Pre-Party ticket with their VIP or General Admission ticket.
Typically, one of the largest Barn Smokers, the 2022 Florida Barn Smoker will be spread out over two separate event days, May 14 and May 15, which will accommodate smaller crowds for each event session. A ticket to attend each event session will be required. Guests will receive their Barn Smoker cigar pack and swag upon entry to the event. The cigar pack will include rare cigars that have been previously released at DE25 Exclusive Pre-Parties throughout the season.
Florida Barn Smoker guests will tour the Florida Sun Grown farm and experience interactive, informative and fun educational seminars, led by Drew Estate Ambassadors, Jonathan Drew, Willy Herrera, Pedro Gomez, and Florida Sun Grown farm owner, Jeff Borysiewicz, on how Florida Sun Grown tobacco is cultivated, harvested, processed and blended into 20 Acre Farm cigars. Throughout the two single-day Florida Barn Smoker event, guests will also experience all-new interactive Drew Estate cigar brand activations for ACID Cigars, Undercrown, Tabak Especial, Herrera Estelí, Joya de Nicaragua, Pappy Van Winkle and Deadwood, as well as witness the artistic skills of Subculture Studios and meet Frankie Dranks, host of “Sticks & Sips,” at the “Sticks & Sips” Tiki Bar to receive a handcrafted cocktail and the “Sticks & Sips” cocktail and cigar pairing book.
Guests will also enjoy other fine spirits and lunch catered by Pig Floyd’s BBQ. They will also be able to purchase raffle tickets for chances to win huge prizes created by Subculture Studios to raise money for Cigars for Warriors, a 501(c)(3) charity that supports American service men and women.
