Saint Luis Rey

Saint Luis Rey

Saint Luis Rey was founded on the brink of the Second World War. It is rumoured the name came from a then popular Thornton Wilder novel “The Bridge of San Luis Rey”. It is may also be named after the town of San Luis in the heart of the Vuelta Abajo tobacco region this is particularly famous for the production of some of the highest quality wrapper leaves available today. 

 

Irrespective, Saint Luis Rey has a reputation among Cuban cigar aficionados for the intensflavour throughout the brand 

 

All cigars are completely handmade (totalmente a mano) from long-filler tobacco (Tripa Larga) sourced from the Vuelta Abajo region of Cuba. The brand is particularly known for the Lonsdale size, which was a favourite of Frank Sinatra.  

 

From 1960 until 1992, the brand was available exclusively for the UK market. From 1993, Habanos S.A. started exporting the brand worldwide. 

 

The brand is today produced at the Briones Montoto factory in Havana, which is the same factory where Romeo y Julieta are produced.
