HISTORICAL BACKGROUND: Cuban PARTAGAS Cigar brand – The Spaniard Don Jaime Partagás Ravelo had worked in the Cuban tobacco business for years before establishing his own factory, Real Fábricas de Tobaco Partagás, on 60 Industria Street in Havana, one of the largest of its time. The name, which translates as “Partagás Royal Tobacco Factory, ” was supposedly chosen because of Don Jaime’s status as cigar supplier to various European and Asian nobility. Don Jaime owned many of the best plantations in the Vuelta Abajo tobacco-growing region of Cuba and being able to choose from among the finest tobaccos on the island made the brand incredibly successful. Don Jaime is also believed to have experimented with various methods of fermenting and aging tobacco and is legendarily credited with hiring the first lector to read to and entertain the cigar rollers as they worked. Don Jaime was murdered (supposedly by a jealous rival he’d been vying with in one of his love affairs) on one of his plantations in either 1864 or 1868 and his son José Partagás took over the business. In 1916, Don José Fernández seems to have left the firm and Ramón Cifuentes Llano joined with Francisco Pego Pita to form the new firm of Cifuentes, Pego y Cía. In 1927, the firm would acquire the rights to the Ramón Allones brand and at some unknown point the factory began to produce a brand named for its owner, Cifuentes. Cifuentes died in 1938 and Pego in 1940, leaving the Cifuentes family solely in control of the increasingly-prestigious factory and brand (it’s unknown why Pego’s heirs didn’t claim anything) and renaming the company simply Cifuentes y Cía. In 1954, the Cifuentes family acquired the Bolívar and La Gloria Cubana brands from José F. Rocha and moved their production to their factory. In 1958, the Partagás Factory was the second largest exporter of Cuban cigars the H. Upmann Factory being the only one bigger, accounting for over a quarter of all exported tobacco goods.
