Viva Republica is a cigar brand born out of the desire to bring new ideas to an industry steeped in tradition. By partnering with the Dominican Republic’s oldest factory, La Aurora, the company has the resources to create blends using tobaccos that most small boutique brands cannot get into their hands.
"When we sought out to find a tabacalera to work with — never did we dream that we would have the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with a factory as prestigious and resourceful as La Aurora. In forming our relationship with Guillermo Leon we came to find out that his word is his bond, his knowledge is humbling and his personality is infectious. In fact, “working” with him is not work at all — it’s sharing a passion and a common desire to create products that please the consumer."
