Crux debuted in the premium cigar market in 2014, being launched by Jeff Haugen and Joel Rogers, owners of the popular Tobacco Grove tobacconist store in Minnesota. Apart from the brand's unorthodox graphics and concepts (including cartoon caricatures in many of their earliest offerings), Crux sets themselves apart through an extremely careful tobacco selection process. Crux sources Grade-A tobaccos from some of the best farms in Central America, partnering with the famed Plasencia family for production.
Our commitment to building cigars of the highest quality and craftsmanship begins with only the finest of premium tobacco, sourced from farms large and small. As a result, our cigars have been honored with praise from our peers and cigar fans alike. We are humbled to be in the position to do what we love, and will never take it for granted.
