Quai DÓrsay was established in the 1970s for the purposes of the French market. It was ordered by the Minister of Finance at that time, because of the need for a cigar in addition to the nation's achievements in fashion, perfumery, textiles and wines. Initially conceived for machine production in Cameroon, the plan was quickly oriented in the right direction - the exquisite cigar should be rolled up with black Cuban tobacco. It takes its name on behalf of the street where SEITA is located - the local cigar distributor for the country and the French Foreign Ministry, on the left bank of the River Seine. Quai d`Orsey is the name of the location of the Ministry, and it also means the "alley by the river", where many artists have searched for their inspiration. Through its purpose, the cigar also reaches to the embassies and diplomats of France abroad as a fragment of the richness of French culture around the world.
The skillful selection of the leaves of Vuelta Abaco and Pinar del Rio in Cuba skillfully creates Quai d`Orsey, enchanting even the exquisite French taste with a delicate bouquet of feelings of wood and honey, vanilla and hazelnut, dried flowers and a finish of earthly notes. The brand is one of the lightest in the portfolio of Habanos s.a. For more than 40 years, it has kept her secret delicate temper primarily for her most avid supporters in France.
