In the early 21st Century, Dunhill Tobacco of London, through House of Edgeworth, launched a range of Charatan Cigars, blended exclusively for the UK Cigar Smoker with a unique blend of Nicaraguan and Indonesian tobaccos. They were an instant success and in a short space of time Charatan became the No1 selling Nicaraguan brand in the UK.
Today under the ownership of Tor Imports Ltd, Charatan is produced by Joya De Nicaragua in Esteli, Nicaragua, in the country's oldest, most prestigious and original factory.
The unicorn that appears on each box embodies the craft and heritage of Charatan. It is a symbol of mythology, individuality and as the national animal of Scotland - of quintessential Britishness.
