H. UPMANN BRAND HISTORY

The esteemed H. Upmann brand dates back to Cuba in 1843 when German banker Hermann Dietrich Upmann arrived in Havana to oversee the interests of an importing/exporting firm in Germany. He subsequently purchased a cigar factory in Havana seeing potential to grow the business as an importer of cigars to Europe. Heinrich Upmann succeeded his uncle and company founder, Hermann, in running the operation upon Hermann’s retirement in 1890. In turn, Heinrich Upmann’s nephews, Albert and Hermann Upmann, took the company over upon Heinrich’s death in 1914. The H. Upmann brand had gained international recognition by this point for producing exquisite cigars. Numerous medals and awards are attributed to H. Upmann cigars and the company has even been credited with the introduction of packaging cigars in cedar boxes.

Despite the success of the H. Upmann brand, Hermann and Albert concealed a German-intelligence network through their Cuban businesses, resulting in a 1917 seizure of the Upmann’s U.S.-based properties. With an attempt to flee Cuba on the horizon, Cuban government officials learned of the brothers’ planned escape and jailed the pair on charges of fraudulent banking activities. An ensuing bankruptcy claimed both the H. Upmann Bank as well as the H. Upmann cigar operation. The brand would pass through a handful of owners over the next two decades who were licensed to sell the H. Upmann brand in Europe.

Makers of the Montecristo brand, Menendez, Garcia y Cia Co., took possession of H. Upmann in 1937 and transferred the brand’s operations to the Dominican Republic following the U.S. trade embargo with Cuba in 1960. Although a Cuban-made H. Upmann is still manufactured, tobacco giant Altadis U.S.A. owns the rights to H. Upmann cigars sold in the premium U.S. market today. H. Upmann is positioned in the renowned Altadis U.S.A. portfolio alongside other celebrated Cuban-legacy brands, Romeo y Julieta and Montecristo.

H. UPMANN BRAND OVERVIEW

Today, H. Upmann cigars are sought after by a number of seasoned connoisseurs who are familiar with the brand’s storied history, many of whom began smoking cigars prior to the boutique cigar craze of the past decade. A portfolio of primarily medium to full-bodied cigars includes longstanding releases such as H. Upmann 1844 Reserve and H. Upmann Vintage Cameroon. 1844 Reserve delivers a consistent profile of spice and earth with an Ecuador Habano wrapper and a well-aged pairing of Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers. H. Upmann Vintage Cameroon is drafted from a complex core of Dominican, Nicaraguan and Peruvian tobaccos beneath a gingerbread-hued Cameroon leaf. More contemporary releases include H. Upmann The Banker, which pays homage to the company’s founder in a series of finance-themed cigar names. H. Upmann AJ Fernandez is a recent partnership with popular cigar-maker AJ Fernandez and highlights the brand’s interest in drawing a fresh audience with colorful, updated packaging and a rich, enticing Nicaraguan profile. The company’s focus on reinvention and our commitment to offering unbeatable cigar deals on Cuban-heritage brands makes discovering the perfect H. Upmann cigar for your palate a pure joy when you shop at Holt’s!
