About Fratello Cigars
Omar de Frias, creator of Fratello, remembers how he was first introduced to the world of cigars. Don Rafael, manager of a small retail store next to his home in the Dominican Republic, brought him in to watch a torcedor (cigar roller) perform his art. Upon finishing, the torcedor handed the cigar to Omar and said “Kid, welcome to the true gentleman’s club.” In Italian, the word “Fratello” represents camaraderie, family and friendship…in his eyes, the true nature of the cigar industry. As a result, their primary focus is on five core qualities: uniqueness, flavor, balance, aroma and complexity.
