A very popular brand introduced in 1964 by the Turrent family in Mexico's famous San Andres Tuxtla Valley. It is often called the King of Mexican Cigars. The tobacco is grown in Mexico's famous San Andres Valley and Te-Amos are handmade at the largest cigar factory in Mexico. In order to concentrate in the production of their famous cigars, the Turrent family sold the trademark to Consolidated Cigar Co. (now ALTADIS) in 1989. Although ALTADIS owns, markets, and distributes the brand, the manufacturing operation is still owned and run by the Turrents. Approximately 5 million Te Amo cigars are sold each year.
