Henry - Turmeaus Cigar Shop Chester

Henry is our most recent addition and initially joined us as a part timer. He quickly developed a passion for the trade and has since joined us as a full time staff member. I actually met Henry a while before he started as he had been one of our regular customers before applying for the job. He has a great taste for pipe tobacco and loves to blend. In fact, you might already be familiar with his work, as The Classic Gentleman from our Blended by You range was something we put together between us a while back.

When he's not blending pipe tobacco, Henry also enjoys a good cigar and is particularly fond of Cuaba Divinos, which he enjoys for their unusual shape and mellow flavour. Look out for more blends from Henry as time goes on!

Henry says his favourite whisky is Caol Ila 30, but it's a little out of budget, so he has to make do with the occasional taste that he gets


Dear All @ Turmeaus,

Good afternoon,

I just wanted to say what a great job your doing with your shops. I visited Chester last week and the staff couldn't of been more helpful, friendly and informative. The bar is a great idea, loved the range of rums and it meant the wives didn't mind how long we spent in there- and that was quite a while !The range was amazing and no matter how long I took to pick my cigars I never felt under pressure to hurry up, it was that good its worth us planning a trip to Chester again round visiting the shop. I also visit Knutsford and the shop manager Andrew does a sterling job with advice and recommendations- couldn't be more helpful. Its great to see a return to specialist shops- something that seemed to almost disappear along with the service that went with it.

Coming from London I am used to good places to buy Cigars and also some good places to smoke them. When I found myself in Chester I came across this Cigar shop. The range and quality was second to none. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. There was a fantastic area inside to sit and sample the cigars. The only downside was I went there too early as I understand they are looking to get an on licence so you can enjoy a quality whiskey or two with your cigar. A must visit if you are in the area.

Andrew A - 5 Stars. Callum was just great - not a pushy sales persons but i bought anyway - cheers

Chris M - 5 Stars. I've been using cgars since I embarked on my cigar adventure 3 years ago. Mitch's social media like his service is 24/7 which is a nice touch as I think he appreciates people who appreciate his passion. This shines through in their customer service also. I also visit their Liverpool and Chester stores where the service is impeccable. All in all a pleasure to do business with!
