Padron cigars come from a family owned company based in Miami that has been in business since 1964. Famed the world over for their rich, masterful flavors, the cigars in this line speak to a tradition that dates back much farther than the company’s founding date reveals. The Padron family, in fact, has a history with Cuban cigar making with roots that go back more than a century.
Jose Padron came to the United States as a Cuban refugee in 1962. He lived in Miami and received $60 a month in aid from the US government. He says that every time he cashed that check he felt like a burden to the country that took him in. He used that motivation to find a job but was having difficulty. One day a friend who worked in the Cuban Refugee Office, Raul Fernandez, asked if Jose had any carpentry skills and Jose said that he did. Raul gave Jose a small hammer and with that hammer he took small jobs doing carpentry work at night and gardening by day. Jose says now that the gift of the hammer made him feel as though he had “the necessary tool to become self-sufficient and not depend on a government hand-out.”
Through a lof of hard-work and sacrifice Jose was able to use that hammer to save $600. With that money, he started Padron Cigars, and started to make his dream of starting a factory that would make great cigars like he used to smoke in Cuba. Today Padron is one of the names that sets the standard of a great cigar around the world, but especially here in Jose Padron's new home, the United States.
Padron wants to be the cigar that people smoke to celebrate all of the special moments in our lives. To that end they strive to produce only the best cigars worthy of those life-defining times. They deliver only the finest, handmade, complex cigars with the flavor of the Cuban heritage out of which the Padron recipe was born. Their primary mission is the exceptional quality of their product and not solely the number of cigars they can produce.
With excellence being the hallmark of Padron, the company oversees every step of production to ensure their standards of perfection are being met. From the tobacco growing itself, to the curing and rolling of tobacco, down to box construction, packaging, even distribution, the Padron family is involved all along the path from farm to your hands. That is why this line of cigars is adored by faithful followers for its rich flavors and quality in craftsmanship.
