The Valley, colder because of its altitude is surrounded by hundreds of rivers and streams of fresh, cool water. A few volcanoes have given the soil the richness of high potassium, which nurtures tobacco.
The family of Jorge Ortiz Alvarez, President of Puros Santa Clara, S.A. de C.V., has been involved in the Cigar making business since before the Mexican Revolution and tobacco business during the XIX century, around the 1830’s.
