About Gran Habano Cigars

The Rico family history in tobacco stretches back to 1920, when Guillermo Rico’s grandfather began growing dark tobacco.  Guillermo’s father succeeded his grandfather in 1946, and Guillermo recalls following his father around the fields as a child and his mother rolling cigars at home. That legacy continues today at Gran Habano, with a strong sense of family tradition embedded into every cigar made in Danlí, Honduras.  Danli is where, in 1998, the factory was established.  It became the birth place of all of their premium cigars, and the quintessential Gran Habano look.

Long-filler cigars became the core of the company brand, with three distinct blends:  the No. 1 is a mild but rich cigar with a Connecticut shade wrapper; the No. 3 is a medium-bodied cigar in a Habano wrapper; and the No. 5 is a peppery full-bodied cigar in a Corojo wrapper.  Consistency has always been insisted with these expert blends, which continue to be bestselling cigars.

The legacy of making cigars at Gran Habano continues to be a family affair in the USA at the factory in Miami, FL.  The Rico family strives for quality in every leaf and cigar in production. Honesty and passion is what compels them to make great cigars; this, married with a sense of originality, has been the signature of their company.  At Gran Habano they look to the future with optimism and a great sense of appreciation for those who have come to know them and their brand.
