Local Artisans Specialize in Hand-Rolled Cigars

Hand-rolling cigars in downtown PueblaSo, you’ve had a few shots of homemade liquor at La Pasita in Los Sapos, and now you’re craving a smoke, one that’s on par with the artisanal drinks. Legendaria Fábrica de Puros (Cigar Factory) may have just what you’re looking for. The tiny shop, just a stumble up 5 Oriente toward the zócalo from the bar, specializes in hand-rolled cigars made with whole leaf Mexican tobacco. Although much of the product comes from San Andrés Tuxtla, Veracruz, the cigars are crafted exclusively on-site, by hand. Like most premium puros, Legendaria’s cigars often feature different varieties of tobacco (Mexican and Cuban) for the filler and the wrapper; one even bears a wrapper soaked in rum. They also come in various shapes and sizes, including Churchill, Corona, Lancero, and Robusto. Prices start around 40 pesos each. Legendaria Fábrica de Puros is located at 5 Oriente #207 in the city’s historic center. —Rebecca Smith Hurd

    Hi Gringa’s guide,

    love your blog, my wife and I have been coming to Mexico most of our lives (me all my life) and added Puebla a few years ago. We are psychologists for 9 months of the year then sell Mexican artisan goods at festivals during summers. We will be off to try cigars tomorrow. Thanks!!
