What you'll experience in the show
We talk about the major challenges: How was the tobacco brought from the growing region to Havana? Why were the cigars not rolled in the growing region? What role did the Spanish tobacco monopoly play? What happened when the British took Havana? Why did the British return Havana to Spain after a short time? Why did cigar production suddenly explode (in a positive sense)?
The documentary series was produced on behalf of the two official importers: 5th Avenue Products GmbH and Intertabak AG.
