Brand Information

The Vegueros brand has it's roots back in 1961, where the Francisco Donatién Factory in the Pinar del Río Province of Cuba started producing Cigars for domestic consumption to compliment it's output of Cigarettes. Over the years, international tourists became interested in the Vegueros brand and became popular in it's own right amongst Cigar smokers who were looking for something different to try. In 1997, Habanos SA launched the Vegueros brand for export. The Vegueros brand was launched with the four following sizes: Especiales No.1, Especiales No.2, Seoane & Marevas.

The Vegueros brand has had a 'low key' profile over the last fifteen years, and the global sales year on year reflect that. The first blow to the brand came in 2010 where both the Especiales No. 1 & Especiales No. 2 were discontinued. The final blow came in 2012, when the last two vitolas in production, the Marevas and Seoane were discontinued. The official line that the brand had not been discontinued. Towards the end of 2012, rumours were circulating that the Vegueros brand was to be re-launched, with new vitolas, that features new blends and a new price point.
