Vegas de Santiago

After Swiss citizen Rudy Niehaus retired, he and his wife Lani, packed their bags and moved to Costa Rica. It’s there where they met the Guzman family. The Guzman family has been growing quality tobacco in the volcanic mountains of the Puriscal region of Costa Rica for more than 80 years. They also made cigars. Rudy & Lani, entrepreneurs as they were, saw an opportunity. Together with the Guzmans’, they founded Vegas De Santiago Cigars.

Nowadays Marc Niehaus, the son of Rudy and Lani, is in control. After his parents passed away, he is the face and the brains of the company. In recent months, the brand changed distributor in Switzerland, found distribution in the Benelux, and collaborates with Rebellion Cigars for the United Kingdom.
