Romeo y Julieta is one of the most famous Cuban-legacy cigar brands. The brand was created in Cuba in 1875 by Inocencio Alvarez and Manin Garcia. When Winston Churchill visited the Romeo factory in 1946, the company named his favorite cigar size, a 7 by 47 Parejo, the “Churchill.” As a result, nearly every other cigar brand makes a size called a Churchill. Today, Romeo y Julieta cigars are handmade in the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Honduras. Top-selling blends like Romeo y Julieta 1875, Reserva Real, and Vintage form a strong foundation in a portfolio that’s been extremely popular with aficionados for decades. Romeo y Julieta cigars are creamy, smooth, balanced, and well made.

The brand rose to international fame during the early years of the 20th Century under the direction of Don ‘Pepin’ Rodriguez, a talented promoter, who was amongst the first to recognise the power of the cigar band. During his hey day no less than 20,000 different bands were used in production.
Winston Churchill became a devotee of the brand. Following 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 – Romeo y Julieta Churchill.
The 21st century has seen the arrival of two additional sizes using the name. The first called Short Churchill, a robusto size that had been missing from the range, was added in 2006. The second launched as the 21st Festival del Habano in 2010, was Wide Churchills, which boasts a 55 ring gauge to mark the trend amongst enthusiasts for stouter girth vitolas.
Romeo y Julieta’s balanced and aromatic blend of selected filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone make it the classic medium bodied Habano.
Today Romeo y Julieta is well known around the world as ever and offers the widest range of long filler sizes in any Habano brand.
