Toscano








In 1818, the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Ferdinand III, founded a tobacco factory which
manufactured Toscano cigars. A bale of Kentucky
tobacco leaves which had been drying in
the open were caught in an unexpected downpour of rain. The wet tobacco started to ferment
in
the summer heat. Instead of throwing it all away, he decided that the fermented tobacco be
used to produce cigars to be sold in Florence.
It gained popularity amongst Italians, thereafter
it became a regular production. Today, the Toscano brand cigars are manufactured by

Manifatture Sigaro Toscano SpA located in Lucca and Cava de' Tirreni.
