About the Cohiba Brand
Regarded as the epitome of luxury and prestige within the Habanos portfolio as well as throughout the world of premium cigars, Cohiba celebrated its 55th Anniversary in 2021. Born in 1966 as the brainchild of Fidel Castro and his trusty advisor Eduardo Rivera, Cohiba was initially only gifted to heads of state. However, the brand has grown to become Habanos’ flagship brand. The name “Cohiba” was suggested by Celia Sanchez and originates from the ancient inhabitants of Cuba. The loose translation is: “the roll of tobacco leaves when lit and smoked”. Clearly, this is a name that is absolutely fitting of this emblematic brand.
Housed at the iconic El Laguito Factory, the first Cuban cigar factory to employ predominantly female cigar rollers, Cohiba is the Cuban brand that most accurately reflects the passion and love of tobacco that occurs during the cigar making process. The strategic innovations planned to carry the Cohiba brand throughout the years have sparked agricultural, industrial, marketing and distribution restructuring within the Habanos cigar production processes; these adjustments have since spread and been additionally implemented across other brands.
