Authentic Cuban cigars only

We understand and appreciate that the authenticity of your Cuban cigars is important to you, especially on the internet.

Here is why you will always receive 100% authentic Cuban cigars from Vancouver Cigar Company.

Cuban cigars are one of the top exports (almost on par with sugarcane exports) from Cuba. It is only fitting that they are produced in highly guarded, Cuban government controlled areas called ‘Vegas Finas de Primera’ (Best of the best).

Needless to say, the people of Cuba take the centuries old tradition of making cigars very seriously.

Habanos SA is part of the Cuban government body that owns all the Cuban cigar brands and helps distribute them around the world.

Once Cuban cigars are produced and ready to ship, they are carefully passed to only Habanos SA certified distributors around the world.

The only authorized Habanos SA certified distributor of Cuban cigars in Canada is Havana House and we have a long standing relationship with them for over 12 years now.

When you get your cigars from the Vancouver Cigar Company, you can be rest assured that they are 100% authentic Cuban cigars.

Also, because of our relationship with Havana House, they have offered to answer any questions about Vancouver Cigar Company’s legitimacy.

Cohiba Cigars

In 1492, during Columbus’ first voyage to the “new world”, he visited the island of Cuba. His sailors were introduced to “Cohiba” by the island natives, a bunch of dried leaves that were smoked in a pipe called a “Tobacco”.

In 1982, three types of Cohiba Cuban cigars were introduced to non-diplomats: the Lanceros, the Coronas Especiales and the Panatelas. Three more vitoles were added to the brand in 1989: the Esplйndidos, the Robustos and the Exquisitos, completing what is known as “La Lнnea Clasica”.

Five more vitoles were added in 1992 creating the “Linea 1492”: the Siglo I, II, III, IV and V. Cohiba remains the “King of the Cubans”. Only the finest tobacco leaves are used to create the various types of Cohiba cigars.
