Discover Cuban Cigars Cuba

The Spanish conquerors, inspired by the Indian sorcerers that inhaled the smoke of dried leaves of the cohiba (tobacco) through tube made from reed, are the inventors of the cigar. The tobacco trade only really started in Cuba in 1580 and became the main product of exportation for the country in 1700.

The region of Pinar del Rio today produces the best cigars in the world. Located some hundreds of miles south-west of Havana, it is cut through by the Rio Guamia and overlooked by the splendid Alturas Pizarrosas. The proximity of the mountains and the humidity of the climate give the land around Pinar a sandy aspect that is so prized by the tobacco planters.
