It is a tradition in the Vuelta Abajo region for the vegueros
(farmers) to make their own cigars. Visitors to this part of Pinar del
Rio province often want to try these cigars made in the land where the
best tobacco in the world is grown.
As a result, in 1996, the brand called Vegueros was introduced to the
market as a tribute to the countless generations that have cultivated
tobacco in Pinar del Rio. It has a special intensity in its blend that
reflects the tastes of the local people.
It is made at the "Francisco Donatien" factory in a sturdy building
located in the centre of Pinar del Rio city that was built in 1868 and
converted into a cigar factory in 1961.
All sizes are ‘totalmente a mano, tripa larga' - totally hand made, long filler.
