Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands is a famous tale of an enigmatic Brazilian woman and the men who love her. It is a story that has become a cherished part of the passionate Brazilian soul.
Menendez Amerino has infused that passion into the art of making cigars - a passion that began when Alonso Menendez perfected the art of cigar making in Cuba during the 1930s. Alonso guided lush tobacco crops from farm to factory—to be meticulously cured, hand selected and rolled. This attention to detail led him, alongside his brothers and business partner Jose M. Garcia, to produce the internationally acclaimed brand of cigars known as Montecristo.
With Dona Flor cigars, Alonso's son Félix and Master Blender Arturo Toraño guide expatriate Cuban craftsmen and highly skilled Brazilians in fusing these passions and Brazil’s Dark Treasure - the Mata Fina and Mata Norte tobacco, sun-grown in the rich soil of the Recôncavo Basin. The result is the unique experience of smoking of a Brazilian Puro.
With the makers celebrating a 35 year anniversary, now is the time to discover Dona Flor cigars - and Dona Flor USA is proud to bring them to you.
