The Toscano brand is the original Italian cigar manufactured in Tuscany, Italy. It is made of high-quality fermented Kentucky tobacco. Founded in the early 19th century, the Toscano cigar is rich in history, tradition and heritage. It is an established brand in Italy and is also well known in Switzerland and Austria.
In 1818, the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Ferdinand III, founded a tobacco factory which manufactured Toscano cigars. A bale of Kentucky tobacco leaves which had been drying in the open were caught in an unexpected downpour of rain. The wet tobacco started to ferment in the summer heat. Instead of throwing all away, it was decided that the fermented tobacco be used to produce cigars to be sold in Florence. It gained popularity among Italians, thereafter it became a regular production.
Today, the Toscano brand cigars are manufactured by Manifatture Sigaro Toscano SpA located in Lucca and Cava de' Tirreni
