Cigars in the World
First originating in the American continent and then brought to Europe by Spanish and Portuguese explorers, cigars are thought to be older than agriculture. These first European expeditions were responsible for introducing cigars to the world.
As far as we know, cigars were already widely consumed in Cuba and other Caribbean islands before becoming a premium worldwide product. Cuban Cigars were one of the first products to take advantage of the globalization process that started with the arrival to the New World, and afterwards with the discovery of the sea route to India and Asia by the Portuguese.
From America to Europe, Europe to Asia, and back to the new colonies in North America, Costa Rica and Brazil, cigars have travelled throughout the world, uniting continents and cultures. First consumed by natives from Cuba, then by the sailors traveling from Europe to India, and finally used to buy spices and establish new trade routes with Singapore, China and Japan, cigars have proven to be a unifier between continents and cultures.
The travel of tobacco from Portugal and Spain to France was very quick, considering that it was made directly by the French Ambassador of Portugal, Jean Nicot, who would later give his name to Nicotine. From France, this new remarkable product, known for its fragrances and flavours, made its way to Italy and later to Britain.
By the beginning of the 21st century, a new brand would arrive to the world market, presenting a high-quality cigar – El Septimo. El Septimo Premium Cigars would bring back to cigar manufacturing the flavours and the quality needed to satisfy an ever-growing and increasingly demanding market.
El Septimo Premium Cigars
With the growing global demand for cigars, some countries known by the quality of their terroirs, leaves and manufacturing culture, like Cuba, were forced to increase production, therefore decreasing quality control, downgrading crops, speeding up production and neglecting the details. By the end of last century, market demand had taken control of cigar production.
In the beginning of the century, a new era was born. The large-scale investments done by El Septimo created a high-quality cigar providing a one-of-a-kind experience. This brand is followed in exclusive groups by faithful cigar lovers that consider the aged tobacco leaves as having an outstanding construction with a long-lasting burn, creamy flavour and remarkable aroma.
El Septimo Premium Cigars are known and requested by the most demanding cigar aficionados.
We believe in a rigorous commitment to our customers and the quality of our cigars. Our team is focused on providing a one-of-a-kind experience with an excellent cigar, built by keeping every detail in mind with the highest quality tobacco leaves, and grown in the best terroirs of Costa Rica.
