Join Drew Estate for the 3rd annual Louisiana Barn Smoker on Saturday October 26th on L.A. Poche Farm. The barrels are full of rich Kentucky seed, Kentucky grown tobacco will be fermenting and you will learn about the rich history of Louisiana tobacco and having a grand time.

The St. James P­arish is known throughout the world as the capital of Perique Tobacco. Drew Estate partnered with Mark Ryan, owner of L.A. Poche, to revolutionize the age-old process of Barrel Fermentation but with our Dark Fire Cured Tobacco from Kentucky. This tobacco is highlighted on the Pappy Van Winkle Barrel Fermented cigar which is the main highlight of the event.

This year, Drew Estate introduces for the first time a VIP package. Only a limited number of VIP packages will be available, so attendees will need to move quickly to purchase them. VIP attendees will be a guest at an intimate dinner the evening before or after the Barn Smoker, hosted by Jonathan Drew and the entire Drew Estate team, as well as receive 3 rare Drew Estate cigars. At the Barn Smoker event, VIP attendees will also be given a premium swag package, including a Barn Smoker torch lighter and cutter, a Barn Smoker rocks glass set and more. Thank you to our friends at Xikar for sponsoring the VIP package.

The expansion of the program in 2019 creates an immersive dive deep into a variety of unique sensory activations focusing on additional brands, including Herrera Esteli, ACID, and more.
