Romeo Y Julieta

Romeo Y Julieta

Named after William Shakespeare’s tragic lovers, the origins of Romeo y Julieta as a cigar brand dates back to 1875. 

 

The brand rose to international fame during the early years of the 20th Century under the direction of Don ‘Pepin’ Rodríguez, a talented promoter, who was amongst the first to recognise the power of the cigar band. During his hey day, no less than 20,000 different bands were used in production. 

 

Winston Churchill became a devotee of the brand. Following his visit to Havana in 1946, his name has not only been commemorated on a band, but it has also served to describe the marque’s most famous size, the Romeo y Julieta Churchills.  

 

The 21st century has witnessed the arrival of two additional sizes using the name. The first called Short Churchill, a robusto size introduced in 2006 which had been missing from the range. As well as the second, launched in 2010 at the12th Festival del Habano, a Wide Churchill. This cigar boast a 55 ring gauge. This was produced based on the trend amongst cigar enthusiasts for stouter girth cigar. 

 

Romeo y Julieta’s balanced and aromatic blend of selected filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo region make it a firm favourite, a classic medium bodied Cuban cigar.
