About The Leaf Master 
Born in Dubai – UAE in July 2017, The Leaf Master focused on New World cigars from day one in light of the quality, diversity, and unique flavor and aroma profiles they offer. TLM saw the potential and as such decided to take those cigars to the next level in a market that was predominantly based on Cuban cigars. Today, however and based on its educational efforts TLM finds itself spearheading an amazing market of growth, with over 850 premium cigars on offer supporting several verticals including retail, HORECA, duty free, re-export, and of course quality accessories. TLM’s Dubai flagship is considered the largest walk-in humidor in the Region, where TLM is in the process of opening additional shops and lounges across the UAE, in addition to further cultivating the cigar shop culture in the UAE, while expanding to other countries within the Gulf Corporation Council (“GCC”). 

FERIO TEGO is the Herklots family motto, found on the family’s coat of arms. While there are many interpretations and translations for this phrase, “Ferio Tego” loosely translates to “Strike and Defend.”
