It should not be forgotten that the Trinidad name is a tribute to the town established in Cuba in 1514, called Santísima Trinidad, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988. Trinidad’s origins as a Habanos brand date back to 1969; as with the Cohiba brand it was only used for many years as a state gift for high-ranking foreign dignitaries. It was in 1998 that this brand was finally made available to smokers around the world, but in very limited quantities.
