Camacho Cigar Company was founded in Miami in 1961 by Simon Camacho. After being exiled from Cuba, Simon persevered through the hardships of living and working on foreign soil, and successfully created a premium handmade cigar company that has enjoyed numerous high rankings. Camacho cigars come exclusively from the furtive Jamastran Valley of Honduras, and are renowned for their extra-flavorful blends. Their cigars are made with original Cuban Criollo and Authentic Corojo seed tobacco and have been hailed as “The Best Habano Outside of Cuba” by many cigar experts and connoisseurs.
Camacho Cigars then changed hands after the death of Simon Camacho to a family of Cuban tobacco growers named Eiroa. The family owned and operated company, Caribe Imported Cigars, acquired Camacho Cigars in 1995 and has taken the brand to new heights. With more than 100 years of tobacco growing history under their belt, The Eiroa’s continue to make new strides in the cigar industry and are now part of a larger highly acclaimed cigar group named Oettinger Davidoff Cigars.
