Over Four Generations of Cigar Making History:
The Story of the Sosa Family
The Sosa cigar tradition began with Don Juan Sosa, 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 tobacco-producing haciendas in Cuba. Over the next 30 years, Don Juan’s son, Arturo, and grandson, Juan, manufactured cigars for sale in Cuba and abroad. In 1964, Arturo and Juan opened their first factory in Miami, Florida. The factory closed in 1980 and moved operations to the Dominican Republic. In 1996, Juan B. Sosa began with the Fuente family and manufactures various lines of cigars of out the Fuente factory.
The story of the Sosa family continues with operations out of Miami, Florida, with Juan's wife, Nelda, two sons, Juan and Arby, and nephew, Alex, who continue the legacy of quality, hand made cigars made in the Cuban tradition.
