La Flor Dominicana was founded in 1996 in the Dominican Republic capital of Santiago. Founder Litto Gomez Diez made the switch from a jewelry maker to a cigar maker, and hasn’t looked back since. In the boutique-style cigar brand’s relatively short history, it has managed to make a name for itself in the world of cigar production. Today, the brand is known as one of the most prestigious in the industry and manufactures its cigars in its factory based in Tamboril. The La Flor Dominicana name, it should be noted, was inspired by the flower of the tobacco plant. When the flowers bloom, it signals the end of the growing process. From there, the plants go on to production.

The Dominican Republic has been growing tobacco since the Spanish introduced the plant to the island of Hispaniola hundreds of years ago.

On tours that revolve around Dominican cigars, guests can expect to visit a shop where they can purchase some of the finished products. At the factory itself is arguably the best place to buy cigars, as you will often get cigars of considerably less quality out on the streets or on the beaches in places such as Punta Cana. Generally speaking, for those who are looking to purchase Dominican Republic cigars and bring them into the United States, the limit is 100 cigars before there is a need to pay duty and Federal excise taxes.
