About San Cristobal de la Habana Cigars

San Cristobal de la Habana is a Cuban cigar brand currently operated by Habanos S.A. and is one of the youngest brands under the Cuban state-owned cigar company. Though a brand with the same name existed before the revolution, the current Cuban San Cristobal brand has no relation to it.

The name of the brand is a nod to Havana’s history at the forefront of the development of Cuba. The name “San Cristobal: (St. Christopher) was the original name of Havana, which was a tribute to Christopher Columbus at the founding of the capital city of Cuba in 1519. San Cristobal’s 4 initial cigars were named after fortresses that defended the city in its Spanish colonial days. Subsequent cigars from the brand continue to honour Havana’s rich history with names that point to ancient streets in Old Havana.

San Cristobal Cigars

San Cristobal de la Habana’s initial four cigars were created as a more mild alternative to other Cuban cigars on the market. They have a characteristically light to medium flavour with hints of flowers and herbs. Using premium tobacco from the Vuelta Abajo region, San Cristobal cigars bring a refined palette that Cuban cigars are known for, at a lower price point.

San Cristobal de la Habana also offers two exclusive sizes that didn’t exist before La Fuerza and El Morro, though El Morro was discontinued in 2013. All San Cristobal cigars are “totalmente a mano, tripa larga”, or hand-made with long-filler leaves.

Where are San Cristobal Cigars Made

San Cristobal cigars are made at La Corona factory, which also creates cigars for brands like Hoyo de Monterrey, Montecristo, Por Larranaga, Cuaba, Diplomaticos and more.
