our family story
Early 1900 the Netherlands was the center of premium cigars. Hundreds of small factories made excellent cigars, all by hand, with tobaccos that were cultivated across the world. We were one of those small factories that were able to adapt to changing consumer demands, grow and improve. Today, four generations later, we are the last independent cigar company in the Netherlands and export our cigars to more than 100 countries worldwide.
It is my privilege to share my dream about creating new and exciting blends with you. Together with Master Blender, Willem van Overveld, and craftsman Francisco Batista, we are on a quest to create memorable cigars. Each telling their own story. A story of blending, of making something special from natural leaves. Our philosophy? Only use the very best nature has to offer, but maybe even more important, of creating something that is greater than the sum of its parts. To excite and surprise cigar lovers from different corners of the world and all walks of life.
