Sosa Cigars has announced it is bringing back its Santa Julia line. This is the third line Sosa Cigars has re-launched in 2015 joining Imperio Cubano and Macabi USA. The return of these existing brands is a part of the company’s “returning to their roots” campaign – which is a key component to the company’s 50th anniversary celebration.
The Santa Julia brand pays homage to the farm owned by Don Juan Sosa in Taguasco, Cuba. Back in the 1920s, Don Juan and his son Arturo bought the farm. When the Cuban Revolution occurred, the farm was nationalized. In the 1970s, when the Santa Julia line was first established. In a press release company president Arby Sosa said he felt the time was right to reintroduce Santa Julia as a brand.
Like the recently re-launched Imperio Cubano and Macabi USA lines, the new Santa Julia will be made in the United States and will be a small batch release. Santa Julia will be produced at the La Vega Cubana factory in Clearwater, Florida.
The first batch of the revamped Santa Rosa will be released in January with the remainder released later in the year. Production is limited to 20,000 cigars in two sizes.
