Montecristo is the best known and probably the most appreciated brand of Habanos throughout the world. It forms the benchmark for many Habanos smokers against which other brands are judged. The name comes from the hero of Alexandre Dumas’ famous novel ‘The Count of Montecristo’, which was a firm favourite when read by the Lector to the Torcedores (cigar makers) at the factory where it was founded in 1935.

The unique Crossed swords logo was developed in the UK by the then importer John Hunter Morris & Elkan Company Ltd. Under the revised guise of Hunters & Frankau ltd, this company still imports Montecristo into the UK to this day. All boxes are marked with the distinctive EMS (English Market Selection) mark of quality. Its mellow balanced flavours are created by perfectly blending leaves from the legendary Vuelta Abajo region. To this day the Montecristo No 4 (Petit Corona) is the world’s bestselling Cuban cigar. A medium to full flavoured cigar, it is the perfect accompaniment to any occasion.
