The most recent Cuban brand to appear on the market is that of Vegueros. The term itself is a Cuban name for farm hands who tend crops. Although they have only recently been available for international consumers, the brand itself was actually founded in 1961. The Francisco Donatien Factory in the Pinar Del Rio region was already known for its manufacturing of cigarettes when it decided to add to its portfolio by producing cigars.
The majority of these cigars were destined for public affairs, conferences and banquets etc. At this point they were still unbranded and it was the locals who with affinity coined the name Vegueros. Western consumers only caught wind of these on holidays to Cuba, visiting the various regions of the island on tours.
In 1997 Habanos S.A decided it was time to release these to the global market. Within no time customers became enamored with the smooth, easy going nature of Vegueros cigars. Many say they can attain notes of citrus, coconut, cream and pepper when indulging in one of the various vitolas on offer. A great choice for newcomers to Cuban cigars as well as veterans.
