Partagas Cigars

The history of Partagas cigars

Don Jaime Partagas Ravelo was a Spanish emigrant...

Don Jaime Partagas Ravelo was a Spanish emigrant who came to Cuba at the beginning of the 19th century. In 1845, he built a large factory which he called Real Fabrica de Tabaco Partagas at 520 Industria Street in Havana. It is the one we all know today, still in the same place, and it is also the oldest Cuban factory in operation. Business was brilliant because the size of this factory was impressive for its time.

Legend has it that Don Jaime Partagas decided to call it the “Royal Manufactory” because his clients included many aristocrats from Europe and Arabia. A large part of his success was due to the fact that he personally owned a good number of tobacco farms in the Vuelta Abajo and used only the best tobacco from them to manufacture his cigars. He would also be the first manufacturer to have tried out the different techniques for fermenting and maturing tobacco rather than relying on traditional practices.

In 1860, Jose Jaime Partagas still participated in the history of the tobacco world, being the first to use a “reader” to read aloud in his factory. This novelty gradually spread to all the factories, making the work of the torcedores less boring and, at the same time, contributing to the culture and education of its employees.

On 17 June 1868, at the height of his career, José Jaime Partagas was shot and killed in one of his plantations. The circumstances of this murder were obscure…the legend says that it was the result of a love rivalry. His son Jose took over the family business. At the end of the 19th century, the business was sold to the Jose A bank. Bance, who in 1900 sold it to Ramon Cifuentes Llano and Jose Fernandez.

In April 1916, Don Francisco Pego joined the company as a partner, renaming it Cifuentes, Pego y Cia. Ramon Cifuentes died in Spain in 1938, and Francisco Pega Pita died in Havana on 13th November 1940. The Cifuentes family thus became the sole owners of the company, which was renamed Cifuentes y Cia. In 1954, they acquired the Bolivar and La Gloria Cubana brands from Jose Fernandez Rocha and, during the revolution, they were the second largest Cuban cigar export company with 25% of the market in 1958.

After the revolution, the Cifuentes family left Cuba in 1961; production remained fully operational, maintaining its role as a major Cuban brand with Montecristo, Rome y Julieta and H. Upmann.
