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. The La Invicta Nicaraguan range is produced in the Placencia cigar factory in Nicaragua, using only the best locally grown tobaccos from Esteli, Jalapa and Condega. The cigars deliver rich, robust flavours and aromas, synonymous with the tobaccos grown in the region. Ideal for the regular cigar smoker or trained palate.
With the exception of the Shorts, all of the cigars are made entirely by hand, using long-filler tobacco leaves and are made from 100% tobacco. The brand is still under the stewardship of Hunters & Frankau, the UK’s leading importer of premium cigars.
