The story of the Punch brand began in 1840 when German businessman Stockmann established the company and named it after Mr. Punch, his favorite European puppet show character. The brand quickly became popular among the general public, especially in Great Britain.
This extreme popularity of Punch amongst the British public also affected Sir Winston Churchill who paid a visit to the Monte y Zulueta factory during his Havana trip. One of the vitolas of the brand was eventually named after the British prime minister.
There were a few ownership changes along the way - the first one came in 1874 when the brand was purchased by Luis Corujo, and another one ten years later, when the company was acquired by Manuel Lopez Fernandez (by the way, his name is still featured on the brand's boxes and bands).
Don Lopez Fernandez retired in 1924, Lopez sold the company to Esperanza Valle Comas, who had owned it for a few years before the Stock Market crashed in 1929.
During those financial hardships, the brand was saved by the company of Fernandez, Palicio y Cia who also owned such brands as La Escepcion, Belinda and Hoyo de Monterrey. The brand enjoyed the same popularity with British cigar aficionados.
Though Fernando Palicio fled Cuba during the Revolution, the Punch production remained uninterrupted under the control of the Cuban state cigar company. Among cigar aficionados, the famous Punch, Churchill, Double Corona, and Super Selection No. 2 proved a real success.
You can find the selection of regular Punch cigars at My-Cuban-Cigars.com, as well as some Edicion Regional Havanas produced by this brand.
