English Market Selection

Read About Por Larrañaga

Por Larrañaga is a brand with a long history. Founded in 1834 it enjoys a well-earned reputation for its consistency and good presentation.

All the filler and binder tobaccos in Por Larrañaga come from the Vuelta Abajo zone.

Globally the range includes cigars made using both the ‘tripa larga, totalmente a mano’ – long filler, totally hand made technique, and the ‘tripa corta, totalmente a mano’ – short filler, totally handmade method, but in the UK only the former is offered.
