la aurora

La Aurora was founded on October 3rd, 1903 by Eduardo León Jimenes, a hard-working man who was son and grandson of tobacco growers, that, without neglecting his family tradition, decided to go a step further with the creation of a cigar brand which he intended to have a global dimension. The founder was then 18 years old, inherited a small piece of land and with a reduced roster of six employees,great enthusiasm, and much effort, began to build his dream. Today, more than 113 years later, La Aurora has a presence on the five continents and more than a thousand employees. La Aurora is today, the leading cigar factory in the Dominican national market, with its brands being sold in more than sixty countries all around the world. Its production has great diversity, with over a thousand different references with such well-known brands as La Aurora, León Jimenes,Princes, Family Reserve and Imperiales.
