smoke a bit of history
The Original Cremo Cigar, an icon of early America and the most successful cigar brand of the early 20th century, made a commitment to providing their customers with value. The company which rose out of beautiful Manhattan, New York City attained the largest sales of any cigar in its class. The brand was also famously linked to musician Bing Crosby in the early days of Broadcasting Radio.
The days of early Manhattan may no longer be here, however a piece of those glorious days are back!
CREMO CIGARS FOUNDED
Established in 1896, the original Cremo Cigar was an icon of early America and the most successful, top-selling cigar brand of the early 20th century in its class. Cremo Cigars was founded almost two centuries ago, in the booming borough of Manhattan, New York by George Washington Hill.1896
Cremo Cigars began to commission the painting of walls and facades that advertised the brand and was so successful that some of the original murals can still be seen across the country to this very day.1910
The popularity of the brand was fast tracked when Cremo Cigars sponsored Bing Crosby, who was the number one singer in America at the time. Crosby was known as “The Cremo Singer” with a multitude of cigar commercials running during his program.1932
Sadly, during the 1940’s, Cremo started to slowly disappear from the American market and eventually the brand ceased to exist.1940
NYC native Walter Santiago, decided to acquire the Cremo Cigars brand with the bold intention of restoring it’s illustrious name. Cremo Cigars opened its Factory and Store in Overtown, Miami.
