Founded in 1519 by the Spanish, the Cuban capital recently celebrated its 500th anniversary.
In February 2019, to commemorate this half-millennium of existence, Habanos paid tribute to the Cuban capital on the occasion of the XXI Festival del Habano through the San Cristóbal de la Habana brand, which at the same time celebrated its 20th anniversary.
This double anniversary was the occasion for Habanos to present an exclusive humidor, produced in a limited edition of 500, the San Cristóbal de La Habana 1519, adding a new special production to the brand's catalog.
Inside the San Cristóbal de La Habana 1519 Humidor, there are 100 "Roque" (57 x 170 mm), an original vitola, specially created for the occasion.
The humidor itself is made entirely of authentic cedar from Cuba's westernmost province of Pinar del Rio, a unique wood species renowned for the aroma and flavour it offers to Habanos.
The classic yet modern design of the San Cristóbal de La Habana 1519 Humidor features an ancient map of the city of Havana as well as strong elements related to the city's history, such as the various fortresses built between the 16th and 18th centuries that defended Havana. The decoration is meticulously sculpted on the top of the humidor and is enhanced by gold inserts. Of course, the brand's logo, topped by the inscription "500 Aniversario", is proudly affixed to the center. Let's also note the presence of 5 cigar-stands in the shape of a gun carriage, nestled in a special compartment, which once deployed, allows you to arrange your cigar and thus form a real artillery piece.
