It's how we put them together that sets them apart

These facts make the difference

ONLY 10% OF SEEDS MAKE IT THROUGH OUR QUALITY CONTROL

From 225,000 seeds per plant, we sow only the strongest and most viable. Premium taste begins at birth.

EVERY CIGAR WE MAKE PASSES THROUGH 300 HANDS – SORRY, 301

Each White Band cigar is handcrafted. Each hand applies a personal skill to what will become a very personal experience.

OUR INVENTORY IS THE LARGEST IN THE WORLD

2,600 tons of tobacco ensure variety and consistent quality. Our cigars will never be compromised by unexpected natural events.

WE WEIGH EVERY SINGLE LEAF BEFORE ROLLING

We make sure every blend has the exact same amount of ingredients. Caribbean passion and Swiss precision bring you consistent taste.

IT TAKES 10 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE TO ROLL OUR CIGARS

You can taste how our creations are wrapped around years of experience. Perfect combustion, pleasant draw, sophisticated aromas.
