IPCPR 2017: 13 Minutes with Pete Johnson

One of the interviews I look forward to every year at IPCPR is our annual chat with Pete Johnson of Tatuaje.

Because it was less convenient to get sucked into …

IPCPR 2017: United Cigar Group & Selected Tobacco

You can tell from the quiet introduction that our interview with Oliver Nivaud of United Cigar Group began the third day of IPCPR 2017 for us.
