My Father Cigars Inc.
Once cramped inside a tiny facility in Miami, José "Don" Pepin's My Father Cigars is now a cigarmaking powerhouse, with hundreds of rollers producing great cigars in a beautiful facility in Estelí, Nicaragua. Born in Cuba, Pepin came to Miami and opened small cigar factory called El Rey de los Habanos. His cigars would soon garner numerous high scores within the pages of Cigar Aficionado, and Pepin would eventually expand to Nicaragua with a new facility, as well as fields for growing tobacco. There, Pepin, along with son and daughter Jaime and Janny, produce award-winning brands such as Flor de Las Antillas and My Father, which have both been named Cigar of the Year. Additionally, the Garcias produce a slew of popular brands for clients, including all Tatuaje and L'Atelier cigars as well San Cristobal and La Aroma de Cuba.
