Curing and Manufacturing Process


 

The special climate of our mountainous area with just
the right proportion of rain and humidity, alternating with
dry periods, is ideal for the natural drying and curing of tobacco.

Our aging process is absolutely natural and, as with
wine, it takes a minimum of 3 years for the tobacco to
reach its full maturity in flavor and color.


 

Mr. Luis Santana Lamas was our master of production.  He
had worked for 25 years at the H. Upmann plant
in Cuba.  He also was advisor to cigar companies
in Central America, the Dominican Republic and
the United States. 


He was one of the 10 most famous in the world.

The secrets of the master, our excellent 100%
Pure Costa Rican Tobacco,
the best Cuban
cigar making techniques, and our strict quality
control procedure guarantee the consumer an
excellent cigar.
 


 

Once our tobacco is fully cured, the leaves are
de-veined by hand and packed into bundles of
100 pounds (50 kg.) each, where they continue
their aging process until the final manufacturing
process begins.

At this stage, the leaves will be "quick frozen" for
48 hours in the event that Tobacco Beetles,
sneaked in our crop.


 

The manufacture of our  Vegas de Santiago cigars
is totally made by hand in order to allow the use
of the tubing technique and to de-vein the outer leaf.

There are many other techniques, but we believe this
to be the best in order to guaranty a regular burn
of  a cigar.

 


 

The unfolding of the wrapper leaf and the selection of
colors is one of the most important activities in
the total process.

At this stage, the tobacco leaves have a surprising
leathery feeling and quality.

 

The wrapper leaves are carefully selected, de-veined
and cut to size, and each cigar is skillfully rolled by
hand to its perfection.

  PURA VIDA !
