Romeo y Julieta
With over 130 years of heritage, Romeo y Julieta, named after Shakespeare’s literary masterpiece, is one of the world’s most iconic cigar brands. Created in Cuba in 1875, Romeo y Julieta cigars became incredibly famous in the 20th century; even Winston Churchill, after visiting Havana in 1946, became an avowed fan and, in return, one of the brand’s sizes was named in his honor.
After the Cuban embargo, production of Romeo y Julieta cigars moved to the Dominican Republic, where the medium-bodied cigars are more popular than ever and sought after for their flavor, construction, and consistency. Today, the majority of Romeo y Julieta cigars are hand made at the renowned Tabacalera de García factory.
