Romeo Y Julieta began in the 1850’s and was officially registered in 1873. RYJ was a brand that in the beginning specialized specifically in figurados. Of course as with many brands in the 1960’s and 1970’s there was a steady decrease in production and outright discontinuation of many sizes that had fallen in popularity.
Named after William Shakespeare’s tragic lovers, the origins of Romeo y Julieta as a Habano date back to 1875. The brand rose to international fame during the early years of the 20th Century under the direction of Don “Pepin” Fernandez, a talented promoter, who was among the first to recognize the power of the cigar band. During his heyday, no less than 20,000 different bands were used in production.
Winston Churchill became a devotee of Romeo y Julieta. Since his visit to Havana in 1946, his name has not only been commemorated on a band but it has also served to describe the marque’s most famous size, measuring 7″ by a 47 ring gauge – the Churchill.
Romeo y Julieta’s balanced and aromatic blend of selected leaves from the Vuelta Abajo region make it ‘the’ classic medium-bodied Habano. Rich, flavorful, aromatic cigars that everyone can enjoy!
Today, Romeo y Julieta is as well known around the world as ever and offers the widest range of ‘totalmente a mano, tripa larga’ – totally hand made, long filler – sizes available in any Habano brand.
