A brief history of Habanos by Gerry Cohen:


Over six centuries ago, Christopher Columbus discovered not only America, but also what we know today as Habanos—the Cuban cigar. 

It is said that when he landed, he and his party came across a group of native Indians smoking large leaves with great enjoyment. Columbus, then turned to his party and commented, in his native tongue, “Qué cigarro!!!” This roughly translates to “Hey guys, look at the big fatties they’re smoking!” and thus the cigar was born.


Over time, Habanos were embraced by high society, becoming part of the la dolce vita portrayed throughout art, music, and film.


Habanos have been smoked and enjoyed by countless Hollywood stars and, of course, famous personalities such as Winston Churchill and John F. Kennedy.


Why? The taste. Habanos have two secret ingredients: the Cuban soil and the Cuban pride that motivates everyone from the farmer who plants the seed to the roller who makes the cigars.


Now, with over 35 factories producing over 700 vitolas, many consider Cuban cigars to be the best in the world.
