Trinidad is named after the beautiful 16th Century city of La Santisima Trinidad (The Holy Trinity), listed by UNESCO as a historical monument, which is situated on Cuba's south coast. Trinidad, as a Habano, dates back to 1969 but for many years, like Cohiba, it was made only for gifts to foreign diplomats. Not until 1998 was it released for general sale and then only in small quantities. The new sizes have brought this brand into the forefront of modern smoking. Trinidad cigars are made at El Laguito factory, the home of Cohiba, to its own particular recipe of tobaccos selected from the Vuelta Abajo region. Trinidad cigars are 'totalmente a mano, tripa larga', totally hand made, long filler.
