Habanos S.A. controls the promotion, distribution and export of Cuban cigars and other tobacco products worldwide. Habanos S.A. export to only one company in each country; in the UK they export to Hunters and Frankau.

There are many quality cigar brands throughout Cuba. The cigars are rolled from tobacco leaves found throughout the country, the filler, binder and wrapper often come from different parts of the island.

Cuban cigar rollers are known as “torcedores”, and are claimed by many cigar experts to be the most skilled cigar rollers in the world, highly respected in Cuba and often travel worldwide displaying their ability to hand roll cigars.
