The Romeo Y Julieta Story

Named after William Shakespear’s tragic lovers, the origins of Romeo y Julieta as a Havana date back to 1875.

The brand rose to international fame during the early years of the 20th Century under the direction of Don ‘Pepin’ Rodriguez, a talented promoter who was amongst the first to recognise the power of the cigar band. During his heyday no less than 20,000 different bands were used in the production of cigars.

Winston Churchill became a devotee of the brand, and following his visit to Havana in 1946, his name has not only been commemorated on a band, but it has also served to describe the the marque’s most famous size – Romeo y Julieta Churchills.

Romeo y Julieta’s balanced and aromatic blend of selected filler and binder leaves from Vuelta Abajo zone make it the classic medium-bodied Havana.
