Saint Luis Rey was founded just before the Second World War.
Some say that its name was taken from a Thomas Wilder play ‘The Bridge of San Luis Rey’, which was popular at the time. However it is more likely that it refers to the town of San Luis in the heart of the Vuelta Abajo tobacco zone, which is particularly famous for the superb wrapper leaves produced there.
Whatever the truth may be, Saint Luis Rey enjoy a reputation among Havana cigar lovers for the intensity of their flavour. They are made with filler and binder from the Vuelta Abajozone.
All sizes are ‘Tripa Larga, Totalmente a Mano’ – long filler, totally handmade.
