English Market Selection


EMS stands for English Market Selection, a description used in Cuba for over a century to identify the quality of cigars designated for the British market. It is the cornerstone of the UK’s long established reputation as the world centre for the finest Havana cigars.


Machine made cigars



  • Line: Minutos
  • Flavour: Light
  • Ring gauge: 42
  • Length: 4 ⅜ Inches / 110mm
  • Machine-made with short filler tobacco the Minuto is an affordable introduction to larger cigars and has the signature aromas of tobacco grown in Cuba. Presented pre-cut and wrapped in cellophane for freshness.


  • Line: Puritos
  • Flavour: Light
  • Ring gauge: 29
  • Length: 4 ⅛ Inches / 106mm
  • At just over four inches in length the purito is undoubtedly the baby of the brand. But don’t let that fool you, there is still plenty of aromatic Cuban character to be enjoyed in this small cigar.
Read About Guantanamera

Guantamera are short filler machine-made cigars produced  in Cuba using 100% Cuban tobacco harvested from plantations in the Vuelta Arriba and Vuelta Abajo regions of the island.

The cigars encapsulate the very essence of Cuba with their authentic rich flavours and aromas and represent great value for money.

Guantamera was the first Cuban brand of the 21st century and was inspired by the island’s music and fiestas, suitably taking its name from the famous Cuban song composed by Joseíto Fernández.
