The birth of the La Invicta brand dates back to the 1940s, when various trade sanctions and currency restrictions were imposed globally due to World War II – one being the use of the US dollar. This made it difficult to purchase Cuban cigars, and so, to maintain a supply of wartime smokes for the UK, La Invicta (translating to “The Undefeated”) was created by cigar importer Hunters & Frankau. Using tobaccos grown in Jamaica and other regions, the cigars were blended specifically for the taste preference of the British smoker at the time.
La Invicta remains a firm favourite today with a new blend and range to reflect the needs and palate of the modern day cigar smoker. La Invicta Honduran cigars are hand rolled at the Tabacos De Oriente Factory in Honduras using a blend of the finest leaves sourced locally from Talanga and Jamastran. They offer subtle, delicate flavours ideal for new or casual cigar smokers.
The cigars are made totally by hand using long-filler tobacco leaves, and the brand is still under the stewardship of Hunters & Frankau, the UK’s leading importer of premium cigars.
