The La Rosa de San diego line pays homage to an area of Cuba known as San Diego de Los Baños. This area is located on the western border of the well-known province of Pinar del Rio. The region is famous for its sulfur hot springs, but also contains a mineral rich soil ideal for tobacco. Starting in 1883, the region saw the first of many cigar factories emerge. There is a tie to the region via American Caribbean Cigars’ President Damian Tapanes’ whose paternal lineage is said to be “woven deep in the tradition of cigar making in San Diego de Los Baños.” With La Rosa de San diego, Tapanes set out to create a cigar steeped in Cuban Tradition.
