La Aurora Cigar Factory, Santiago de los Caballeros

Track the history of the famous hand-rolled cigars at La Aurora Cigar Factory. Established in 1903 by Eduardo Leon Jimenes, La Aurora has gone on to become a globally recognised brand with many awards to its name. Witness the fine craft of hand-rolling in the Dominican Republic’s oldest cigar factory. A factory tour teaches you about the history of the brand, and gives you a glimpse into the complex process of growing, curing, fermenting, and of course hand -olling the cigars. If you want to learn the process, reserve your spot in an intensive hand -olling course at the onsite La Aurora Cigar Institute.

  • has many varieties of cigars and has its own brand Ron I am happy to work in this company
  • I couldn't begin to describe how awesome it was to spend time at LA Aurora. Their products: cigars, beer, rum, and coffee, I knew were awesome. I now know how amazing their people and company are. Their commitment to excellence shows at every level. I am humbled to have been allowed to spend time there and highly recommend not only buying the products but go see them for yourself.
  • The environment and the people are just awesome. Very nice looking store with competitive tax free pricing. Lots of items on sale. If you catch the tour take, its FREE and very entertaining. They teach you all of the processes and show you around the factory. If you are a rum lover, you must try the La Aurora 110th Aniversario. Its awesome. Be aware that the store is inside the plant so you need to go in through the main gate and then find your way around to terminal 3 inside. Thanks Yulianna Morales for your help 😊
