In 1990, Mr. Philippe Gillet visited the Dominican Republic for the first time, finding not only good weather and beautiful beaches, but some of the world’s finest cigars! Two years later he went back to the Dominican Republic with his biggest passion in mind "Create a Cigar Brand" and so he did!
In 1992, Don Lucas Cigars started rolling cigars with two cigar rollers, and making only 150 cigars per day.
Today we have over 45 employees in our production line. From the beginning Don Lucas has always ensured to keep “quality over quantity”. We produce a limited amount of cigars with the highest standards of quality in the market. Golf and Travel Magazine has ranked Don Lucas Cigars in the top 12 cigars brands of the Dominican Republic (Golf And Travel Magazine, March / April 2006 & Hunting Magazine, May / June 2010).
At Don Lucas we produce 14 different cigar sizes with five different strengths, which are kept in our humidors to ensure optimal conditions.
