History of the brand

The preface to the Septimo saga starts in 2005, with as its subject the concept of a range of cigars whose build and aesthetic and taste qualities would be incomparable.

The reason for this creation was overall dissatisfaction with the quality of the cigars on the market and their sizes. The desire to overcome all these shortcomings led the designer to form the idea of this range, which now covers 23 cigars and 3 different series.

On the way to this creation everything was redesigned in a new way to break with a long tradition of obsolete packaging, creating new rings providing both originality and aesthetics.

Ultimately, in its overall concept Septimo claims to have respected tradition while giving colour to the very particular world of cigars.
