Place of Origin

Maker Bayuk Cigars Inc.

Maker Details Bayuk Bros. maintained five brands of cigars in their catalog, all made in multiple sizes and sizes and shapes: PHILADELPHIA PERFECTO, CHARLES THOMSON, HAVANA RIBBON, MAPACUBA and PRINCE HAMLET. In addition, like most of the nation’s cigar factories, Bayuk would package cigars under other names to create custom brands for wholesalers, retailers and other customers. The original plan was that CHARLES THOMSON cigars, named after the first signer of the Declaration of Independence, would become their focus, but PHILADELPHIA PERFECTO or “Phillies” became the smoker’s favorite, and the THOMSON brand ultimately became the first of their five late teens brands to be dropped. The Brothers incorporated in 1920, becoming Bayuk Bros., Inc., a name which lasted for only three years, as in 1923 they changed the focus from the original brothers to their product and became Bayuk Cigars, Inc.
