SAN CRISTOBAL DE LA HABANA CUBAN CIGAR BRAND HISTORY - San Cristobal de la Habana was the original name of Havana, Cuba's capital city, when it was founded in 1519; San Cristobal (St Christoper) in honour of Columbus and La Habana after an Indian name for the site.
San Cristobal de la Habana cigars were introduced in 1999 on the threshold of the new Millennium as a tribute to the city's long history.
At first the range comprised just four vitolas, each named after one of the fortresses built from the 16th to the 18th Centuries that defended Havana when it was the hub of Spain's American empire. These are: El Morro, La Fuerza, La Punta and El Principe.
Then,in 2004, three new sizes were added, which are unique to San Cristobal. These are named after well-known streets in Havana's Old Town: Muralla, Mercaderes and Oficios.
All San Cristobal's vitolas are Tripa Larga, Totalmente a Mano,long filler, totally hand made to a light to medium flavoured blend of filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo tobacco zone.
