It all began from a very humble beginning when Jose Pepin Garcia and his family established a very small cigar factory in Little Havana in 2003. Jose Pepin Garcia could not have imagined at that moment that his love and passion for cigars would help him to build one of the most recognized companies in the cigar industry. His companies have become synonymous with highly rated and well-distinguished brands.

It all starts in 1950 when Jose Pepin Garcia is born in Cuba. Just a few years later, barely 11 years old he sits for the first time at a rolling table to roll his first cigar. Inspired by the spirit and tradition of a family who grew alongside with tobacco leaves is where Jose Pepin Garcia was born and developed.

"It is about a lifelong passion! It is not just about a cigar, it is a dream - the Garcia's dream!"
says, Jose Pepin Garcia.

On August 29, 2009 one of the most memorable moments in the Garcia's life was the opening of My Father Cigars in Nicaragua, also known as the Garcia Family Industrial Park. A seven-acre complex with an installed production process, which enables the tobacco to be harvested, packaged and shipped to our retailers.

Don Pepin Garcia who was recognized as "America's Hottest Cigar Maker" by Cigar Aficionado in 2008 and his son Jaime Garcia have developed countless blends for My Father Cigars and for several of the most prestigious companies in the market. Janny Garcia, Pepin's daughter is in charge of the My Father Cigars headquarters. With great team leadership comes a great team accomplishment, the largest international recognition was granted by the cigar industry.

The Best Cigar of the Year for 2012 was given to Flor de Las Antillas.

The Garcia Family continues to follow the tradition they lived and learned in Cuba and proudly own two factories, the headquarters in Doral, which is a boutique factory with a team of twelve expert cigar rollers trained by Don Pepin himself. The other is the Garcia Family Industrial Park in Esteli, Nicaragua with more than three hundred cigar rollers. Both factories are responsible for the twelve company owned brands that exist in the marketplace today.

The Garcia Family blends are uncompro-misingly robust and aromatic, recognized for their distinct combination of strength, richness and spicy aroma along with a heavy finish. The construction is a very meticulous handcrafted cigar with a beautiful wrapper and a traditional triple-cap finish.

Pepin's traditions, heart and soul go into every cigar we make. The strict execution of time-tested Cuban cigar making methods ensure that every cigar we make provides the best possible smoking experience.
