Davidoff Cigars - The Beginning
Born to cigar merchants in Kiev in 1906, Zino Davidoff was educated early in the tobacco trade. After finishing school in 1924, he spent six years in Latin America learning the business and cultivation of tobacco before returning to run his parents shop in Switzerland in 1930. There he established himself as a knowledgeable and innovative tobacconist, specializing in imported Cubans, and eventually inventing the world’s first desktop humidor. In 1947 Zino struck gold with his Château and Grand Cru cigar lines, thus beginning the Davidoff cigars brand’s rise to fame. It was with the introduction of these brands that the Davidoff cigars name first became synonymous with affluence and “the finer things in life.”
In 1967 Zino began a long-standing relationship with Cuba’s state-run Cubatabaco, who created the first Davidoff cigars. The Cuban Davidoff cigars remained in production throughout the 1970s and 80s, until ongoing disputes over quality issues and ownership rights forced the two entities to part ways in the early 90s. In 1989, Zino famously set fire to over one hundred thousand Cuban Davidoff cigars that he determined to be of sub-par quality and unfit for sale.
Just before the dawn of the Cigar Boom, Davidoff’s Dominican factory opened its doors, and in November 1990 the first Dominican Davidoff cigars hit the market. Rather than trying to produce an imitation of the Cuban Davidoff, Zino wisely focused on creating the best Dominican cigar possible. This strategy paid off, and before long Davidoff had become one of the most sought-after cigar brands in the world.
Today Davidoff produces a wide range of high quality tobacco products including premium cigars, cigarillos, pipe tobacco, and cigarettes, as well as non-tobacco products like pipes and humidors. Davidoff cigars are still handmade in the Dominican Republic, under the supervision of renowned cigar blender Hendrik "Henke" Kelner. Some of Zino’s original cigar sizes and shapes from 1947 are still in production under the modern-day Davidoff banner.
