Davidoff is a Swiss company in the tobacco industry which mainly manufactures and markets cigars, mixtures of pipe tobacco, as well as accessories for smokers and luxury products (perfumes, leather goods, writing instruments, watches, glasses, coffee, cognac).
Zino Davidoff discovered and transmitted the passion for cigars in Europe, invented cigars, he made his little Geneva civet the center of Cuban cigars in Europe.
At the end of the war, Zino Davidoff proposed to the Cubans to launch a range of cigars and to associate names of Grands Crus of Bordeaux wine with cigars from Havana. Under the production of the Hoyo de Monterrey factory, the “Châteaux” range was born. Château Lafite, Château Latour, Château d’Yquem, Château Haut-Brion and Château Mouton Rotschild thus became legendary Davidoff cigars.
Following this collaboration with the Cubans, the latter proposed to Zino Davidoff to create his own cigars. Thus were born the Davidoff N ° 1, N ° 2 and the Ambassador. Then followed the series of 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000 and 5000.
Today, Davidoff cigars are produced in the Dominican Republic but always in the same spirit of perfection in order to perpetuate the legend of this man who wrote the history of cigars in Europe.
