As just another token of Habano´s prestige and in keeping with the world trend for the registration of great denominations of origin and geographic indications, Chile’s National Institute of Industrial Property (INAPI) has granted that recognition to the DO Habanos.




The 16th edition of the Habano Festival will stretch from Monday Feb. 24 to Friday Feb. 28, 2014, and this time around the fest will pay tribute to four of the most prestigious Habano brands: Hoyo de Monterrey, Partagas, Trinidad and H. Upmann.

The festival has panned out to be a benchmark event for the world’s finest cigars: the Habanos. In last year’s edition, the Habano Festival was attended by over 1,200 delegates from some 80 countries.
