Montecristo x S.T. Dupont United by history, cultural roots and artisan tradition.

The year 2022 marks the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Maison S.T. Dupont by Simon Tissot Dupont and the 220th anniversary of the birth of Alexandre Dumas, the author who gave life to the character “The Count of Montecristo” and who inspired the famous “Montecristo” Habanos brand. The year 1935 also links both brands. While in La Habana, Montecristo was established as a brand, in Faverges, the prestigious Chinese lacquer became one of the most important artistic elements used by S.T. Dupont.

This anniversary is an opportunity to celebrate its passion for designing exceptional products for exceptional people, passed down from generation to generation through its unique expertise in leather goods, lighters, writing instruments and luxury accessories.


Montecristo is one of the best known and most appreciated Habanos brands. It could be considered the benchmark in terms of flavor internationally. Its name comes from the novel The Count of Montecristo, by the French author Alexandre Dumas, the novel was read by the tobacco readers and unleashed so many feelings among the cigar rollers that, Montecristo was founded in 1935, a name  given to the brand in honor of the protagonist.

In tribute to this history and to the 150th anniversary of the House of S.T. Dupont, Montecristo and S.T. Dupont are joining forces to create a unique Collection that will seduce aficionados of both brands.
