"Casa Cuevas Cigars are a new brand to the US market, but I wouldn’t call this their first rodeo. Casa Cuevas is a family owned business that first started in the tobacco industry four generations ago in the Pinar Del Rio valley of Cuba where they cultivated tobacco. Today, they operate out of their Tabacalera Las Lavas factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic. Out of this factory, they have produced cigars for well-known brands such as Gurkha, Sam Leccia and Carlos Torano. The Casa Cuevas line is just the first to bear the family name." - Cigars International

"In the 19th century, Juan Cuevas, Spanish immigrant from Santander, began what was to be a family business which now spans four generations. Like others fortunate enough to live and work in the Pinar del Rio province of Cuba, Juan commenced cultivating tobacco, turning it into a successful business. ... So it is that, after decades of manufacturing premium cigars for notable brands, it was decided that the time had come to produce and market a high-end, premium cigar that would bear the Cuevas name." -
