FLOR DE LAS ANTILLAS – CONCEPT AND CREATION:

My Father Cigars is a company that takes pride in their traditions and humble beginnings. As patriarchs of the Garcia family, Jose Pepin Garcia and his wife Maria Garcia always taught their son Jaime and their daughter Janny the importance and value of never forgetting where you came from. As second generation raising the third generation of growing up in the cigar heritage, Jaime Garcia (along with his wife Dianely Garcia) and Janny now instill this value in their own children. Together, this family brought the passion, love, tradition, and knowledge from their native Cuba to the USA.

When it came time to work on a new project in 2009, master blender and president of My Father Cigars Jaime Garcia began thinking how he could honor the beautiful island he and his family were from. He brainstormed and remembered an old brand from Cuba in the 1990’s that gave homage to the nickname given to Cuba for being the largest of the Greater of the Antilles islands. This is where the story of Flor de las Antillas (Flower of the Antilles) begins…

Released in May of 2012, Flor de las Antillas quickly caught the attention of many with its elegant packaging that is reminiscent of the original art work and traditional boxes of cigars in the 1900’s. The exquisite design featured in the box and on the cigar band is an original art piece drawn by Pepin’s nephew and the company’s Creative Marketing Director, Alcides Montenegro. Alcides has brought his unique and creative ideas to all of the company’s packaging, bands, advertisement, promotional items and layout of all the booths for the various tradeshows the company participates in. Keeping the look and feel of the 1900’s, he designed a detailed piece that focuses on two women working in the field. Contrary to the typical bright colors used by most companies, he decided to make this a stand out by using more pastel colors and lighter shades that all together brings you the class and culture of the era. The enticing final touch of the look is a Bordeaux foot band that most definitely sets this cigar apart from any other in anyone’s humidor.

 
 

La Antiguedad (The Antiquity) is the Garcia's second project to be developed after the mega success of Flor de las Antillas, in which they will once again embrace the authenticity and historic value of the original Cuban art. : Created by master blenders Jose "Pepin"  Garcia and Jaime Garcia, La Antiguedad is a super-premium cigar handcrafted in Nicaragua, using the world's finest Cuban seed Nicaraguan grown tobacco. This addition to the My Father Cigars portfolio will continue to showcase the Garcia's Cuban heritage and respect for tradition. The filler tobacco for La Antiguedad is cultivated entirely in Nicaragua on the farms of San Rafael, Las Quebradas, and San Jose, all privately owned and operated properties of My Father Cigars. These tobaccos undergo a very strict and rigorous curing process of no less than three and a half years to guarantee exceptional quality. The Garcia family classifies the exquisite blend found in La Antiguedad as medium to full in strength, which offers complex yet balanced flavors.
