Casa Cuevas announces Australian distribution. The Dominican cigars from the Cuevas Family are now available via the importer, distributor, and online retailer Hecho a Mano. The man behind Hecho a Mano is Ry LeFerve.


Ry LeFevre, CEO of “Hecho A Mano” says:” My love of cigars and the lack of diversity of premium handmade cigars in the Australian market is what led me to create “Hecho A Mano”. We think that the Casa Cuevas fits our portfolio like a glove. We are more than excited to work alongside the Cuevas family and offer the Casa Cuevas line of cigars to the Australian market.” 

“Australia is a new market for Casa Cuevas Cigars. We are confident that “Hecho a Mano” is a perfect fit for our brand,” states President of Casa Cuevas Cigars Luis Cuevas Jr.

International distribution 

Slowly but surely, Casa Cuevas is building an international network. Even though the Cuevas family is making cigars in their Tabacalera Las Lavas. The family history with tobacco spans four generations and three countries. Spain, the motherland of Juan Cuevas who migrated to Cuba in the 19th century to cultivate tobacco. Cuba, where the family history with tobacco starts. And the Dominican Republic. That’s where the Cuevas family found refuge after everything was stolen from them by the Castro clan. 

After producing cigars for others for decades, Casa Cuevas was born with an inaugural release in early 2017. While establishing and growing the brand in the United States, international cigar enthusiasts started to notice the brand. That led to distribution partners in New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and now Australia. Ministry of Cigars reviewed the Casa Cuevas Reserva Maduro.
