Over Four Generations of Cigar Making History:
The Story of the Sosa Family

Don Juan Sosa was a small tobacco grower in the fertile Taguasco region of Cuba at the turn of the century. By the 1920′s, his farm had become one of the largest tobaco-producing haciendas on the island. Over the next 30 years, Don Juan’s son Arturo and grandson Juan manufactured cigars for sale in Cuba and abroad, but due to political turmoil, the family was forced to leave the island in 1962.

Juan Sosa spent the next several years searching for soils as rich as those in his native Cuba. He found them in the Santiago region of the Dominican Republic where the family re-established their factory along with operations in Miami.

The story of the Sosa family continues, with his wife Nelda and three sons who continue the legacy of quality, hand made cigars made in the Cuban tradition.
