After immigrating from Austria-Hungary, in 1895 Julius Caeser Newman craved the American Dream and started the J.C. Newman Cigar Company. It was a very humble beginning in the family barn’s basement in Cleveland, Ohio. However because of the tenacity and perseverance, of young J.C., the company quickly grew and expanded. One hundred years later, Stanford Newman, J.C.’s son, wanted to honor his father’s vision with a very special cigar. This cigar would be called a Diamond Crown and would be like no other.
