Saint Luis Rey

The history of Saint Luis Rey traces back to the 1940s, when the brand was established, it was named after the town of San Luis in the Vuelta Abajo region of Cuba, world renowned for its high quality tobacco.

From the beginning Saint Luis Rey quickly gained a reputation for producing premium cigars known for their rich flavours and smooth smoke. It was one of the many prestigious Cuban cigar brands that flourished before the revolution.

Like many Cuban cigar brands, Saint Luis Rey went through various ownership changes over the years. This didn’t affect its popularity or quality, as it remained a highly sought-after brand among cigar enthusiasts. 

After the Cuban Revolution of 1959, the Cuban government took control of the cigar industry, including Saint Luis Rey. Despite political changes and economic challenges, the brand continued to produce cigars of high quality, maintaining its status among aficionados. 

Saint Luis Rey’s reputation extended beyond Cuba, gaining recognition among enthusiasts worldwide. Their cigars have been exported to many countries and enjoyed by all who appreciate the unique flavour notes that Cuban cigars contain. Due to their popularity, Saint Luis Rey expanded its portfolio to include a variety of cigar sizes and blends, which cater to different preferences and tastes. Unfortunately in the UK, we only have access to the Regios which is well known for its creamy elements and strong floral elements.

Saint Luis Rey’s legacy continues to the present day where they are still highly regarded among aficionados. Despite changes in the industry and increased competition from New World brands, Saint Luis Rey maintains its place as a must have in all humidors.
