In October 1492, Christopher Columbus discovered an island called Cubanascan by the indigenous Taino people. He considered it ; “the most beautiful land than human eyes have ever seen" and re-named it Juana, after the second daughter of his sponsor, King Ferdinand II of Spain. Juana became Queen of Castille in 1504, but was deemed to be insane and confined for the rest of her life in the Royal Convent of Santa Clara. After this sad event and the fact that she was now known as “Juana La Loca”, it was felt the island should revert to the original name, which over time became shortened to Cuba.

Princess Juana is a slightly moist, demi gros snuff made with fermented Cuban tobacco matured with cedar wood shavings for six months and cased with 100% pure essence of violets.

NB: As with any natural tobacco product, artisan nasal snuff can be susceptible to mould if it is not stored correctly. All of our snuffs are heat treated before packing to ensure an indefinite shelf-life whilst in the original, unopened containers. Our snuffs are traditionally made without chemical preservatives and we recommend that once opened the snuffs should be kept in the tightly closed brand container and stored in a refrigerator. Only decant using a clean, dry implement.

Available in 15 and 50 gram containers.

This stuff is great. It reminds me in f&t Santo Domingo just with a better tobacco base. I have read somewhere that the original Santo Domingo also was made from Cuban tobacco.
