About us

Objectives and presence

Dos Santos SAU, with head offices in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, was founded in 1921 and remains a benchmark in the history of tobacco products in the Canary Islands.

Ever since the beginning, Dos Santos has made an effort to offer the best original tobacco, as experienced connoisseurs of smokers’ tastes. We make the black tobacco cigarettes “Mecánicos”, a brand with a long tradition that is very close to the heart of Canary Island smokers. The passion and expertise of Canary Island tobacco working families has also enabled us to produce our top-quality hand-made cigars, “La Regenta”, which enjoys a fantastic reputation for its hand-made quality in both the domestic and the international market.

Our objectives

Our objective in Dos Santos is to be benchmark in the tobacco industry in Spain and the best Phillip Morris TPM in Europe.

Our values can be summed up as: Quality, commitment, perseverance, safety discipline, efficiency, honesty, dynamism and simplicity.

We are approaching the 100th anniversary of our foundation and we would like to celebrate it by becoming a safe work place with zero accidents and zero mistakes, with an inspired and motivated team that is 100% committed to our customers.

Our Brands


Our most emblematic brand, first conceived in the 1920s. With an intense aroma and captivating taste, it has become a long-standing favourite of local Canarian smokers. Many of us at the company can recall our grandfathers reaching for a good filterless Mecánicos from a distinctive green or yellow pack… now, however, Mecánicos are not confined to the Canary Islands, they are also available to traditional dark tobacco lovers living on the Spanish mainland.

Fire-cured dark tobacco leaves, carefully selected at different stages of the process, are mixed in the right proportion to produce the Mecánicos blend. This for us is the only way of continuing to impress our customers over time, while catering to the preferences of all kinds of smoker by offering different versions of our Mecánicos cigarette.


Many islanders from La Palma are farmers at their place of origin and continue to be in Cuba, land of welcome for many Canarian emigrants from the seventeenth century who quickly learn to grow tobacco. This particular brand therefore features the finest dark Cuban tobacco leaves, which undergo a stringent selection process.

The results could not be better, achieving a well-balanced premium product, 100% natural and with its own unique flavour. Packaged in banana tree leaves, the tobacco bales conserve their humidity and aroma like no other. A young and intriguing product on the rise, particularly popular among dark tobacco smokers from the Spanish mainland.


Dos Santos established its first bonds with the United States in the 1980s. Thanks to these commercial dealings and due to changing consumer demands, the company has extended its range of products by adding blonde tobacco to its production line.

The know-how acquired from our repeated trips to the United States has allowed us to create numerous enticing American-style blends.

An American name for an American blend: Desert Gold, also a tribute to the golden sands that cover many of our beaches on the Canary Islands. Conceived in the 1990s, Desert Gold is now our most emblematic brand within an extensive range of products, and is currently the most well-travelled both nationally and internationally.

Barlovento is a young cigar and one of our most recent creations. Produced from Cuban tobacco seeds planted in the Dominican Republic, the cigar has a mild and sweet taste and a near perfect burn. It has a medium-low strength and acquires more character and personality as you reach the second third of the cigar.

Its range of vitolas makes it ideal for large-scale events and celebrations.

Moreover, its modern design and name have made it a hugely popular choice both locally and abroad. At present, Barlovento has a loyal following not only on the Spanish mainland, but also in various other European countries.

Its unique presence and bouquet are unmistakably born of the Canary Islands and all cigars are carefully produced at our Dos Santos factory. Its simple presentation makes it a highly appealing cigar for all kinds of consumer, and its extensive range of available vitolas mean that smokers can choose the perfect cigar for each occasion.


Our mini Regenta is a truly classic example of our 100% Natural Tobacco cigars. This simple yet noble cigar is the ideal companion for short breaks from the day-to-day routine. Offering a medium strength and mild flavour, it leaves a creamy taste with fleeting bitter touches on the smoker’s palate. Petit Regenta 100% also features a variety of eye-catching presentations and versions.


Doble Tres, Brevas and Señoritas, is one of our most successful medium cigar ranges on the local market. Its unique taste has won over many Canarian smokers, lured in by its unmistakable bouquet and flavour. Its simple yet practical presentation equate to a competitive price tag, thus bringing a quality cigar within reach of all consumers.


Born in the 1920s, along with the company that originally bore the same name, “Fábrica La Regenta”. The company’s headquarters, which have since been declared a building of historic interest, still remain in the centre of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria today, and now function as an art centre showcasing the works of top-flight artists.

Back in the day, Cuba was the main supplier of leaf tobacco, while the Canary Islands provided the nexus between Cuba and the European continent. This link eventually gave rise to a highly skilled tobacco processing sector on the Canary Islands, which, in turn, afforded our La Regenta cigars a truly supreme quality.

With the passing of time, our cigars have not lost a single iota of their original essence.

The know-how acquired years back by the first master tobacco growers and rollers has since been passed on to their children and nephews, who now continue our tradition of producing cigars of unrivalled quality. The strict leaf selection process undertaken by our experts ensures maximum satisfaction from even the most demanding of smokers, who will discover in our cigars rich and aromatic flavours.

La Regenta cigars feature an attractive light caramel Connecticut wrapper. The Cuban seed tobacco filler is harvested from both the Dominican Republic and Brazil, providing a perfect combination. Mild and sweet when first lit, the cigar soon reveals its strength through an even and refined burn. La Regenta offers an herbaceous and mellow bouquet and shows its full character towards the end of the cigar. Moreover, the wide range of vitolas allows smokers to choose the cigar best-suited to each occasion.
