Simon Camacho was exiled to the United States from Cuba in 1961. Following his exile, he opened a cigar factory in Miami, Florida where he called home. This is where the distinguished Camacho brand began.
The brand soon gained a prominent reputation with aficionados within the States as well as outside of the US including the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Cigar production during this period reached 2 to 3 million cigars per year and continued to grow through the 1990's. In 1995, the Eiroa family acquired the Camacho brand, five years after the death of its original founder. This change in ownership transferred the company's tobacco production from Nicaragua to Honduras where they are still made today.
In the early 2000's, The Davidoff Group acquired the company which coincided with the release of the Corojo wrapper which was the final push to become a major player in the cigar industry. Top quality hand selected tobaccos and blends, unwavering attention to details and bold marketing campaigns have made the Camacho brand a real powerhouse in the cigar world.
