H Upmann

H Upmann CigarsThe H. Upmann Cigar brand name is representing premier cigars that are made for a Franc-Spanish tobacco company Altadis USA. The brand was established in 1844 and is among the oldest of the brands in cigar history. Around 1840, Herman Upmann a banker from Europe opened a branch office in Havana. This provided him with the opportunity to send cigars back to Europe.

In 1844 Upmann invested in the H. Upmann Cigar Factory and the brand as born. Upmann is sometimes given credit for the invention of the cedar boxes that are used during the packaging process. Back in the 1840’s they used the original boxes with the Upmann name and logo as advertisement. He would package other cigar brands in the boxes and to give to customers until he opened his own cigar factory in 1844.

The H. Upmann cigar factory is now known as the Jose’ Marti’ Factory, located in Havana. In 1922 both the bank and cigar business went bankrupt. J. Frankau & Co., a British firm bought the failing cigar brand. J Frankau & Co. continued production until 1935, when the company was purchased by Menendez y Garcia & Co., the makers of the world famous brand Montecristo. After the Cuban revolution, Menendez and Garcia moved the Upmann brand to the Canary Islands, then to its current home in the Dominican Republic. The production of H. Upmann cigars is still active for the American market under the ownership of Altadis USA. The line today includes the H. Upmann Black and Gold, H. Upmann Classic, H. Upmann Edicion Limitada, H. Upmann Reserve Maduro, H. Upmann Sun Grown, H. Upmann Tubed Classics, and the H. Upmann Vintage Cameroon.

A popular story about the cigar brand is that on the night before the embargo act was signed, John F. Kennedy had his aide Pierre Salinger hunt down all the H. Upmann Petit Coronas he could find in Washington DC, as they were his favorite brand. Pierre was able to locate a total of 1,200 of his favorite cigars. This story has been confirmed by Pierre himself, and helps make this brand even more famous.

The H. Upmann cigars are premium cigars that are highly recommended and a great tasting line of cigars. The line is full of sticks with complex flavors and smooth taste. There is a cigar for every occasion in this line, from celebrating an event such as a wedding or the birth of a child, to simply having a mellow midday smoke. With this brand being one of the oldest known, it has come quite a long way from a failing brand in the early 1900’s to now being a worldwide known and respected line. Altadis USA is a thriving cigar manufacturer, and therefore the H. Upmann name is definitely going to be around for much longer. Hermann Upmann would have been a very proud man had he been able to see the impact that his cigar brand would have on the cigar smoking industry. His name continues to carry on with high respect and a tantalizing effect on the taste buds of aficionados everywhere.
