Black Label Trading Co. & Black Works
Fine tobacco making is fine art.
Black Label Trading Co., established in 2013, was born out of a passion for cigars and a love of Nicaraguan tobacco. James Brown, cigar maker, Sommelier, contemporary artist, adventure traveler and entrepreneur has spent the last several years living in and exploring the tobacco regions of Central America. Royalty, Benediction, Salvation, Lawless & Last Rites were among the first blends released.
I wanted to create something different, an experience, to re-think cigar making and make premium small batch cigars to the highest standards. These are the cigars I wanted to smoke.
In January, 2015 we opened our own boutique factory; Oveja Negra (Black Sheep) taking ownership of the entire process to ensure 100% quality from seed to ash.
Black Works Studio (BLK WKS) launched in December 2015 with Killer Bee, NBK & Rorschach. I have always looked at cigar making as an art form and BLK WKS is another expression of what I can do as a cigar maker and brand owner.
