‘There’s peace in a Larranaga, there’s calm in Henry Clay’, reads the first half of the fifth couplet in The Betrothed, an 1890 poem by the celebrated English writer Rudyard Kipling.
Por Larrañaga is a brand with a long history. Founded in 1834, it enjoys a well-earned reputation for its quality and the attractiveness of its presentation.
From this high point, the brand has shrunk to just one handmade model and a few machine-assisted styles. It was created in 1834 by Ignacio Larranaga, likely making it the oldest continuously-produced Havana brand still in existence.
All the tobacco in the Por Larrañaga range comes from the Vuelta Abajo region and the cigars are made using methods of production – “totalmente a mano, tripa larga” – totally hand made, long filler, “totalmente a mano, tripa corta” – totally hand made, short filler.
