The foundation of La Aurora dates back to 1903 in the Don Pedro community where Don Eduardo Leon Jimenes founded his cigar factory having the ambitious dream to create products of excellent quality and worldwide class. In 1963 the company
passed to the hands of his son, Eduardo Leon Asensio, who teamed up with his brothers and continued the success of their father.
The Leon Asensio generation was based on a strong technical education and as the center of the family values responded to the challenges of the new times and used modern machines. La Aurora continues its long tradition and the manufacturing of hand-made products. This is the reason why the smoker enjoys the highest quality of flavor and aroma with every sip of the cigar. The experience, the skill and the expertise of the Dominican craftsmen that continue the family tradition have an important role in the creation quality products that satisfy the most demanding tastes.
The aroma and the flavor of the Dominican cigars are recognized worldwide and especially La Aurora being one of the best cigars in the world.
