While working as an entertainment and product liability lawyer in Los Angeles, Rocky Patel was first introduced to premium cigars by his cigar smoking girlfriend in the early 1990s. He fell hard for cigars, and it wasn’t long before he joined the Grand Havana Club in Los Angeles. During this time, a business plan to produce cigars was presented to Rocky.
Patel’s first brand, Indian Tabac Cigar Co, rolled its cigars in Honduras. The brand made its debut at the Retail Tobacco Dealers of America (RTDA) Trade Show in 1996. The company is named after the Indian Motorcycle brand, for which Rocky licensed use of the name. At RTDA, The Indian Tabac booth was swamped with retailers scooping up these new cigars with bold, brightly colored packaging. This was during the cigar boom, which Rocky, unlike much of his competition, would survive.
In 2003, Rocky changed the Indian Tabac name to Rocky Patel Premium Cigars. The first brand to bear his name was the celebrated Rocky Patel Vintage Series, and you’ll find plenty of these in Rocky Patel cigar samplers. Patel is famous for his near-flawless attention to detail. He wants to deliver a cigar with the same consistency through and through every time. This level of quality assurance ensures only the best Patel smokes find their way onto shelves.
Rocky is famed for his ability to release cigars that differ drastically in taste. Here is a man living his passion. Every step of the way, from creation to marketing, Rocky is involved. Many go as far as to call him the hardest working dude in the cigar game, and we can see why. He’s known for his tireless hustle, spending epic time on the road to gain new customers, form partnerships, and come up with and flesh out new ideas.
Rocky Patel Premium Cigars' story is far from over as the new blends and brands never seem to cease coming. With Rocky's level of energy, charisma, and enthusiasm, we wouldn't be surprised to see it continue for many years to come.
