How Did It All Begin?

It all started during 1961 when Simon Camacho was expelled from Cuba. After being expelled, he moved to Miami, Florida, wherein he set up his first cigar factory. While moving out from Cuba, Simon Camacho carried some seeds called Corojo Cuban Seeds, which intrigue the Cuban rich flavor that Camacho Cigars have. 

It was because of the exquisite flavor, Camacho Cigars gained name and fame, and today they are renowned worldwide.

What Are Corojo Seeds?

Corojo is a variety of tobacco that is used in preparing wrappers of cigars. It originally belongs to Vuelta Abajo, Cuba, but now is grown extensively in Honduras- Jamastran Valley and in the Western Kentucky of USA.

Corojo was initially grown by Diego Rodriguez, wherein he crossed an Indonesian Sumatra with a Mesoamerican Criollo strain and created flavored tobacco.


The Eiroa Family And Camacho Cigars

After 5 years of Camacho’s demise, in the year 1990, the brand Camacho Cigars was nabbed by Julio Eiroa, who shares a history in cultivation and dealing with tobacco. Soon after the company was acquired, its tobacco production plant was shifted from Nicaragua to Honduras.

During the time of the 20th century, Genereso Eiroa, father of Julio Eiroa, was involved in the cultivation of tobacco. Similar to Simon Camacho, the Eiroa family was also Cuban expelled due to the revolution in Cuba due to which they moved to Tampa, Florida, and settled there. Julio even joined the Bays of Pigs to liberate his native place.

During the 1970s, Julio aided Honduran Tobacco Industries to flourish and soon became business partners with Bering Cigars and US Tobacco.


The Davidoff Family And Camacho Cigars

During 2008, Davidoff took over Camacho cigars along with its Dani’s factory named Rancho Jamastran. With Davidoff’s supervision, Bayer CropScience partnered with Camacho and developed agricultural practices. Soon after this, Camacho became the only tobacco industry all around the world, which follows strict environmental standards.
