Trinidad is named after the beautiful 16th century city of La Santisima Trinidad (The Holy Trinity), listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, which is situated on Cuba’s south coast.
Trinidad, as a Havana brand, dates back to 1969 but for many years, like Cohiba, it was made only as gifts to foreign diplomats. Not until 1998 was it released for general sale and then only in small quantities.
For several year Trinidad was made at El Laguito, the Cohiba factory, where its uniquely fragrant and aromatic, medium flavoured blend of filler from the Vuelta Abajo region was developed.
By the end of 2004 demand for Trinidad had outstripped production cpacity of El Laguito and it was decided that manufacture of the brand should be moved to Pinar del Rio City. It is here that Trinidad is made today close to the famous Vuelta Abajo plantations.
