PR9.NET March 15, 2015 - JT 1492, is our in house brand. This brand was created in honor of Rodrigo de Jerez and Luis de la Torre. Rodrigo de Jerez was one of the Spanish crewmen who sailed to the Americas on the Santa Maria as part of Christopher Columbus's first voyage across the Atlantic Ocean in 1492. He is credited with being the first European smoker. Luis de Torres (died 1493), perhaps born as Yosef ben HaLevi HaIvri, ("Joseph, Son of Levi, the Hebrew") was Christopher Columbus's interpreter on his first voyage and the first person of Jewish origin to settle in America.
In November 1492, Jerez and Torres first observed natives smoking. They were searching for the Emperor of China in Cuba. Apparently, the natives made rolls of palm and maize leaves in the manner of a musket formed of paper with tobacco on the inside.
Jerez picked up the tobacco smoking habit. When he returned to Europe in the Ni"a, he introduced the habit to his hometown, Ayamonte. The smoke surrounding him frightened his neighbors: the Spanish Inquisition imprisoned him for his "sinful and infernal" habits, because "only Devil could give a man the power to exhale smoke from his mouth". When he was released seven years later, smoking tobacco had caught on in Europe
Private label, the company would provide the option of a personalized private label to either commemorate a special event or to display a corporate logo. Sales would be generated through local bars and shops as well as over the Internet, which offers an astonishing large market. The company is currently in talks with China"s largest wedding planning school to market private label cigars in Chinese weddings.
