Discover Cohiba's Rich Legacy:
Cohiba, the flagship brand of Habanos, has a rich and storied history. Created in 1966 for President Fidel Castro, these cigars were initially reserved for heads of state and visiting diplomats.

The name "Cohiba" traces back to an ancient Taino Indian word, representing the earliest form of a Habano.

Cohiba sets itself apart through meticulous craftsmanship and unique fermentation processes. Only the finest leaves from the San Juan y Martínez and San Luis districts of the Vuelta Abajo zone are selected for Cohiba cigars. Up to three filler leaves, including the rare medio tiempo leaf, undergo an additional fermentation in barrels, imparting a distinct aroma and flavour exclusive to Cohiba.
