CigarsLover Autumn 2020
Liana has become a fixture in the cigar industry and the new face of Arturo Fuente Cigars. In this interview she sheds some light into who she is and how she has made a name for herself in the industry.
Tell us a little about your time growing up? What did tenyear-old Liana want to be once she was older?
When you’re a 4th generation cigar maker in a family business that has been around for over 100 years, that’s a tough question! I can’t imagine doing anything else. But if I had to ask my ten-year-old self, it would definitely be a veterinarian or a professional dancer on Broadway. As much as I love people, especially those that make up our amazing cigar industry, I love animals, especially dogs. Those in my family who came before me, like my father and grandfather, Don Carlos, taught us the importance of always giving back. Indeed, even though I work full time in the family business, I try to feed this passion by volunteering at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, so I guess that is where I would be.
