In 1895, our grandfather/great-grandfather Julius C. (J.C.) Newman founded our family cigar business. Four generations later, J.C. Newman Cigar Co. is America’s oldest family-owned premium cigar maker. We proudly hand roll premium cigars today the same way that J.C. Newman did a century ago.
Today marks not only the start of the New Year but also our company’s 125th anniversary year. We look forward to celebrating the major milestone throughout 2020. We invite you to join us at special events around the country, visiting our restored El Reloj cigar factory in Tampa when it reopens this spring, and by lighting up your favorite J.C. Newman cigar.
A key to our company’s longevity has been an unwavering commitment to quality craftsmanship and customer service. As a family-owned company, we personally stand behind all of our products and strive to ensure that each is perfect. Our family’s sole goal is to continue J.C. Newman’s legacy and our family tradition and keep rolling hand crafted premium cigars for another 125 years.
We are very grateful for your support of J.C. Newman and wish you and your family a very healthy, happy, and successful New Year!
An amazing article on the four generations of Newman men, and how their legacy has continued throughout the years from Cigar Snob.
J.C.’s hometown of Koronč was absorbed by the local town Trebišov sometime in the 20th Century. However, the legacy of the Newmans lives on with the “Dom Cigar” shop in the city of Košice, Slovakia.
As America’s oldest family-owned cigar maker we’re proud to say we’ve been at every RTDA/IPCPR/PCA Trade Show since 1933 and this year will be no different.
