The idea to venture into the production of cigars was born a few years ago, when two friends, both cigar connoisseurs, decided to start this adventure. In respect of their multiple connections with factories established in the Dominican Republic, they decided to purchase an old cigar factory in 2015 and start realizing their dream.
After a deep dusting they gave life to this sleeping legend and allied with three living tobacco bibles cumulating more than 120 years of experience in the creation and production of the cigars. This is how the tabacalera “La Leyenda del Tabaco” is born in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic.
The soil of the Santo Domingo is known for its exceptional quality in tobacco breeding. Today, the island is leading producer of cigars, surpassing even Cuba.
