They say some things never change and that axiom rings very true with Horvath cigars. In many ways, stepping into our factory is like stepping back in time. Our production process has changed very little since the first Horvath cigars were made in 1932. Tobacco is still aged and cured the way it always has been. The stripping of the stems remains the same as ever. The humidification process has not changed at all. And the cigar-making machines are themselves almost 100 years old. While the industry we helped create continues to evolve, the Horvath process and commitment to quality remain stubbornly the same.
Old World Tradition
We still manufacture cigars using time honored traditions from natural leaf to the final finished cigar. Our production staff take great pride in the cigars they make and many of them have been producing Horvath cigars for generations.
Our Manufacturing Process
Our cigar machines date from the turn of the 20th century and were originally from pre-revolution Cuba. Although we maintain a full-time mechanic and machine shop to keep them running, our facility is capable of producing upwards of 5 million cigars per year.
Strict quality control standards ensure that Horvath cigars meet the demanding expectations of the modern adult consumer. Once the finished cigars have left the aging room, we inspect them by hand before they move on to the packaging level.
Quality Control Step 2
At the packaging level, all Horvath cigars must pass a second quality control check. Two sets of eyes are always better than one.
