History of Romeo and Juliet Cigars

The brand of Romeo and Juliet cigars was established in 1875 by the duo of Mannin Garcia and Inocencio Alvarez in Cuba. The brand is named after Shakespeare's famous playwright, Romeo and Juliet. With the efforts of Garcia & Alvarez devoting themselves to producing quality products in every aspect, the brand soon became popular and had many loyal followers. Between 1885 and 1900, the brand won numerous awards at different tasting exhibitions.

The brand became even more popular after it was acquired by Jose "Pepin" Rodriguez Fernandez in 1903. With much experience in the cigar industry and the expertise in marketing, Pepin constantly traveled across Europe, actively promoting his brand and within a few years he was able to take the brand from local fame to international recognition. With this growth and demand for his cigars the company grew to 1,400 workers and he was forced to move to a larger factory.

Another innovative tactic he would do was produce personalized cigar bands for diplomats, heads of state, and some of the wealthiest clients and at one time his factory was producing 20,000 custom made cigar bands. Pepin was devoted to his brand, and at the same time was almost obsessed by his brand, naming his racehorse Julieta, and trying to buy the House of Capulet in Verona, where Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet was set.

Although, he wasn't allowed to buy the House of Capulet, he was able to have a cigar stand under the balcony, so that until 1939, every visitor was offered a free cigar in honor of the play Romeo and Juliet.

Pepin died at the age of 88 in 1954, just before the nationalization of the Cuban cigar industry in the 1960s. Today the Romeo y Julieta brand lives on and carries on Pepin's tradition by offering a variety of sizes. The brand is now owned by the Cuban government's Habanos S.A., which runs all of the Cuban cigar industry.

There is also a non-Cuban brand with the same name produced in the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Romeo y Julieta cigar brand was made as a result of the nationalization of the Cuban cigar industry and due to the trade embargo that the United States has with Cuba and this is the only legal "Romeo y Julieta" cigars that can be sold in the United States.
