Zechbauer Royales

Hand-rolled cigars and cigarillos from Costa Rica - exclusive & direct from the manufacturer

Cigars of the Royales Line

Inspired by history

The Zechbauer Royales product range was inspired by the glorious history of the Munich-based Max Zechbauer Tabakwaren cigar house. As a "Royal Bavarian Purveyor to the Court", Zechbauer products have already graced the Russian Tsar's Court, the Vatican and other European dynasties. So as you see, Zechbauer's own-brand cigars are already "Royales" in every sense.


Cigars to savour - with a premium flavour

13 royal treasures await you. From the Chiquititas - our top-of-the-range cigarillos, to brand new Lancero, Toro, Coronas, Belicosos, Salomones and Robusto varieties; up to three collections. Cigar lovers need look no further than the Royales range.

The best tobacco, from the Caribbean & Latin America

How did you end up sourcing cigars from Costa Rica? Founder Zechbauer went with his gut – and timed it perfectly. We have teamed up successfully with the Vegas de Santiago manufactory in Puriscal since 2010. The ideal climate for our "Royales" cigars.
