Simon Camacho was exiled from Cuba in 1961. Following his exile he opened a cigar factory in Miami Florida. This is where the distinguished Camacho brand began. The Camacho brand soon gained a prominent reputation outside of the US as well as with cigar aficionados in the states including Winston Churchill. Cigar production during this period reached 2 to 3 million cigars per year and continued to grow through the 90s.
In 1995 the Eiroa family acquired the Camacho brand, five years after the death of its original founder. This change in ownership transferred Camacho’s tobacco production from Nicaragua to Honduras.
In the early 2000s the release of the Camacho Corojo Cigar was the final push to become a major player in the cigar industry.
