The History of My Father Cigars
In 1950, José Pepin Garcia is born in Cuba. At just 11 years old, he rolled his first cigar and became inspired by the spirit and tradition present in the cigar world. His passion and love for cigars was clear from that moment onwards and led him to establish a first-class company renowned for its quality everywhere.
In 2003, José Pepin Garcia and his family established a small factory in Little Havana and, on August 29 of 2009, the My Father Cigars, also known as the Garcia Family Industrial Park, opened in Nicaragua. This seven-acre complex had its own production process and enabled Garcia to harvest, pack and ship tobacco to the company’s retailers.
Together with his son, Jaime Garcia, he developed numerous blends for My Father Cigars and for countless other fantastic cigar companies in the market. Expertly crafted, their premium line of handmade cigars comes from the finest tobacco leaves.
My Father Flor de Las Antillas received the award for The Best Cigar of the Year in 2012, an incredible honour that truly showcases the passion and high quality of the brand.
From humble origins to one of the most recognised brands in the world!
