Temple Hall Estates

The Temple Hall Factory was born from hardship and strife. With hard currency needing to stay in British hands during WWII, England looked to the holding of Jamaica to supply them with fine hand rolled cigars. Cuban tobacco experts left in droves to lend their talents on a new island. Under the guidance of Ramon Cifuentes of Cuban Partagas fame, Temple Hall became arguably the best cigar producer in the world by the late 60’s and early 70’s. They filled the void left by the Cuban embargo and had continued success through the boom of the 90’s. With such a rich history, Foundry Tobacco Company wanted to pay homage to the factory by releasing the newest line in their heritage series: Temple Hall Estates.
