The Quesada family has been a part of the tobacco world for over 100 years. They immigrated from Spain to Cuba in the mid 1880's where they were bakers and decided to start in the tobacco business when they were paid a debt with tobacco. The Quesada brothers were forced into exile due to the Cuban Revolution where they had to leave everything behind. They moved to the Dominican Republic where they bought warehouses and established the tobacco leaf business on the island.
