If there is a particularly famous Habanos factory in Havana, it is Partagás. For many years this Factory was located at 520 Industria Street, right behind the Havana’s Capitol, in the heart of the city. Today, the Factory is located at 806 San Carlos Street.
The factory was created in 1845 by Don Jaime Partagás, and has been producing this prestigious Habanos brand ever since.
Partagás Habanos are immediately recognizable for their intense flavour. The character of its blend, made up of selected cigars from the Vuelta Abajo area, in the Pinar del Río region, is of inimitable richness and aroma.
The Partagás vitolario is characterized by a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
Particularly well- known are the Series D No. 4 vitolas, whose Reserva was the first made by Habanos in this concept, Lusitanias, 8-9-8 and the Partagás Pirámide: Series P No. 2, a pyramid that quickly became a Habano of choice for lovers of full flavor cigars, introduced in 2005.
In 2008, the Partagás Series P No. 2 and Series D No. 4 tubes and cardboard boxes released a new image.
In 2011, 2 new vitolas, Series E No.2 and Series D No. 5 were presented, within the well-known Series.
In 2013, the first Gran Reserva in the brand’s history, Lusitanias Gran Reserva Cosecha 2007 was introduced to satisfy the most experienced smokers looking for an intense flavor with character.
The Partagás Tropicales Humidor has been chosen by Habanos, S.A. to commemorate the celebration of the brand’s 175th anniversary, being one of the most awaited novelties for demanding Habanos lovers.

In 2014 the brand hosted the launch of Series D No. 6 and in 2015 the concept of aged cigars was inaugurated with two reference brands, Montecristo and Romeo y Julieta, followed by Partagás Coronas Gordas.
