A Rich Heritage and a Bold Future
The Romeo y Julieta brand, with its roots tracing back to 1875, is named after Shakespeare's tragic lovers. It gained international acclaim in the early 20th century under the visionary leadership of Don 'Pepin' Rodriguez, who was a pioneer in recognizing the significance of the cigar band. His era saw the use of over 20,000 different bands in production.
Winston Churchill, an ardent fan of the brand, left a lasting legacy following his 1946 Havana visit. His name not only graces a cigar band but also defines the brand's most iconic size - the Romeo y Julieta Churchill.
Expanding the Churchill Legacy
The 21st century welcomed two new sizes under the Churchill name. The Short Churchill, introduced in 2006, filled the Robusto size gap in the range. In 2010, the Wide Churchills were launched at the 21st Festival del Habano, featuring a 55-ring gauge, catering to the trend for wider vitolas among aficionados.
The Classic Medium-Bodied Habano
Romeo y Julieta cigars are renowned for their balanced and aromatic blend, using select filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone. This composition has established them as the quintessential medium-bodied Habano.
Celebrating 145 Years of Excellence
The Linea de Oro, introduced in 2020, commemorates 145 years of the iconic Romeo y Julieta brand. This new line, including Dianas, Hidalgos, and Nobles, offers a medium to full taste, elevating the classic medium-bodied blend.
Elegance in Presentation
These cigars are encased in exquisite red lacquered boxes, adorned with an embossed medallion on the lid. Each of the 20 cigars within features a bespoke band, denoting the individual vitola, and a unique golden foot band with holographic elements, reminiscent of those found on Cohiba vitolas.
