Zino Davidoff is a name that is synonymous with quality and luxury, renowned as one of the cigar world's most prestigious brands. From exotic woods to sophisticated acrylic designs, Zino Davidoff humidors beautifully blend the traditional with the modern for a richly pleasing look and functionality. What truly distinguishes Zino Davidoff cigar humidors from others is that each is infused with the unmistakable character and passion of Zino Davidoff the man.
The Zino Davidoff Story
Zino Davidoff was born in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev in 1906 to a family with deep roots in tobacco sales. With a changing political climate, the family immigrated to Switzerland in 1911 and settled in Geneva. Here the family opened a new tobacco shop that would forever change the cigar industry: Davidoff of Geneva.
Under the guidance of Zino's father, Henri Davidoff, the family's shop quickly became a popular destination for cigar aficionados. As Zino grew into the business, he traveled the world searching for the finest tobacco and developed a passion for the business and the relationships it brought. Whether meeting tobacco growers, factory workers or cigar lovers, it was a love affair that endured throughout Zino's lifetime and still is at the heart of the brand that bears his name today.
Over the years, Zino would be front and center for innovations that would keep Davidoff at the forefront of the cigar industry for years to come. Under Zino's guidance in 1930, the family's shop installed the world's first climate-controlled room for storing tobacco. As the storms of war gathered over France in 1940, Zino Davidoff agreed to French requests to store two million Cuban cigars. This served to bolster Zino's legendary status as the leading cigar purveyor in Europe.
Zino would spawn another innovation in the 1950s that would revolutionize the cigar world. Davidoff had long wanted cigar aficionados to experience cigars as he had during his travels throughout Latin America's tobacco-growing regions. Davidoff set out to create a cigar storage box that would recreate the humid climates of the tropics. This inspiration was the birth of the modern humidor as we know it today.
The Zino Davidoff legend only grew in the 1960s with the publication of the "The Connoisseur's Book of the Cigar." The decade also saw the emergence of the Davidoff brand of Cuban-made cigars. Further global growth throughout the 1970s and 1980s included expansion into the US market with non-Cuban cigars. By the time Davidoff ceased production in Cuba in 1991, it was one of the premier names in cigars, humidors, and luxury accessories. A title Davidoff can still claim today.
Zino's legacy is built upon innovation and passion for the industry, yet Zino Davidoff is perhaps best remembered as the world's leading ambassador of cigars. He joyously shared his love of the cigar-smoking ritual and its ability to bring people of all walks of life together. This was his greatest gift to cigar smokers. While he is no longer with us, Zino's legacy lives on with each Zino Davidoff humidor.
