Read About Ramón Allones

Ramón Allones is one of the big names in the history of Havanas. Founded in 1837, it is also one of the oldest brands still in production.

A Galician by birth Ramón Allones was the first cigar manufacturer to pack his cigars in boxes decorated with labels and stamped with his brand’s emblem. He was the pioneer of the packaging tradition that we know today.

Hunters & Frankau owned the Ramón Allones factory in Havana and the world wide rights between 1911 and 1927 so we are particularly pleased to include it here as part of our UK portfolio.

All the cigars are filled with a blend of filler and binder tobaccos from the Vuelta Abajo zone, characterised by their intense and complex taste.

The whole range is composed of ‘tripa larga, totalmente a mano’ – long filler, totally handmade cigars.
