Young Zino Davidoff left the family to tour the Caribbean and South America in 1924 and study the tobacco industry for six years, working alongside the people who grew and tended the plants. He returned in 1930 to take over Davidoff of Geneva with a passion for the combinations of soil, sun, and rain that make for great tobacco.
Zino put his new-found knowledge of how the tropical climate in South America and the Caribbean preserved the true flavors of the tobacco, when he developed the first humidified container, or humidor, for storing cigars.
Zino's invention along with exceptional crops and cigars fueled the growing Davidoff legend. In 1967 they were commissioned to make cigars for the Cubatabaco. Those Cuban Davidoff cigars were highly prized and made them one of the most well-known as well as respected names in the industry.
In 1991, the Cuban line was discontinued and Davidoff focused on the Dominican Republic where it presides over several fincas (ranches) with precise terrain, temperature, and sun/rain ratios. With meticulous attention to detail, Davidoff selects the very best tobacco seeds (only one in ten is selected) from all over South America and the Caribbean and grows the leaves on these fincas.
The leaves are harvested and sorted, each for its distinct qualities. Flavors develop over a long curing process followed by a long aging process. Some of the very best leaves may not get rolled for close to a decade after they are harvested. This eye for detail throughout the entire cigar-making process leads to a high level of consistency and quality throughout the brand.
Today, Thompson Cigar carries nine of the Davidoff lines of premium cigars. With a wide variety of sizes and mild to full-strength sticks, Davidoff makes a cigar you can enjoy for a relaxing morning smoke or a late night pick me up. If you're not sure where to start, we have a Davidoff cigar sampler that our customers say "is a great way to test the smokes of different sizes." It also makes an elegant gift for someone's special achievement.
Davidoff is a brand you can buy with confidence knowing you're getting over a century of dedication to the craft of making luxurious cigars that offer consistency with every satisfying puff.
