Guillermo Pena Sr. started making cigars in Cuba in 1953 at the age of 13 in the town of Baez in Cuba. He began his career working as a cigar roller and eventually became a cigar blender as he learned and became a master of the craft.
A Family Tradition
Guillermo’s son, Guillermo Pena Jr., started working as an apprentice alongside his father at a young age. Guillermo Sr. always wanted to pass down the art of blending cigars to his son one day. Working hard to master the craft himself, Guille Jr. became one of the the premier cigar rollers in Havana. He immigrated to the U.S. in 2005 in hopes of fullfilling his dream, to own a cigar company in the US! Working hard to make ends meet in Miami, Florida. Guille Jr. never forgot his dream of making his own cigars in the US. His dream became a reality when he started Pena Cigar Corp in Miami, Florida in 2010.
