Today Miami Cigar and Company founder Nestor Miranda turned 80 years young. In true Nestor Miranda style, a birthday gala celebration was recently held to mark the event. Held at one of Miami’s newest eateries, A Love Story Winery & Bistro, the celebration was attended by family and friends and included an 80-person domino tournament.

Nestor Miranda and his wife Mariana founded Miami Cigar & Co. in 1989. Nestor began selling cigars out of the trunk of his car while he was working with Southern Wines & Spirits. Sales quickly grew to the point where he retired from his position to manage Miami Cigar & Co. full-time with his wife. What began as a two-person operation quickly became a true family business, as his son Danny joined the business and later his son-in-law Jason Wood did as well. Miami Cigar & Co. is known for the Nestor Miranda signature, Don Lino, and Tatiana Cigar brands. Over the years, Miami Cigar also became a distributor of many brands including La Aurora, Toscano, and many others.


Nestor Miranda said: “80 is a huge milestone, and I was overwhelmed to spend it with family, friends, and cigar industry friends. We are planning to keep the celebration going throughout the year, STAY TUNED!”
