Without a doubt, one of the most notable products exported globally are cigars, and where better to purchase them than personally in a local factory? This is possible thanks to the Tobacco Museum, established in the city of Higüey, which allows the typical tobacco culture of the island to be better discovered.
This culture arrived with a Dutch immigrant named Klass Kelner, who arrived on the island in 1937. Since then, the production of cigars has been one of the most important industries of the Dominican Republic due to the great quality of the tobacco grown here.
Anyone who wishes to learn the curiosities of this product, how it is grown, collected and processed, will be able to discover it first hand at this free museum. The craftspeople will be there to show the secrets of production, leading it to be considered a living museum. To conclude the visit, the museum will invite visitors to try the cigars and sample a glass of the typical Mama Juana liqueur.
