H. Upmann Cigars - Royal Habanos
The brand was founded in Havana, Cuba by the German banker Hermann Dietrich Upmann in 1843. It is one of the best pre-revolutionary brands from the country. The brand brought the cedar box packaging tradition early on the market because they designed the boxes as gifts for bankers. The tobacco used for these cigars comes from the fertile area of Vuelta Abajo. The region is well-known for having rich soil and the perfect humidity for the tobacco. The brand has seen many ups and downs due to the World Wars but it was always in the top choices of diplomats and world leaders like John F. Kennedy. The brand is produced in the Romeo y Julieta factory in Havana and it has some of the most beautiful hand-made cigars on the market. The taste is smooth and rich, showing the premium branding experience and legacy of the brand owned now by Habanos SA.
