Swisher Sweets are manufactured by Swisher International, Inc. (see Swisher International Group) in Jacksonville, Florida. The corporate headquarters is located in Darien, CT. The company began in 1861 when David Swisher received a small cigar business in settlement of a debt. Back then, cigars were only a sideline for Swisher and his four sons, just one of many notions that they hawked across the Midwest for the ?rolling stores? or wagons. Today, Swisher International, Inc. is a leader in the tobacco business, accounting for one-third of the the United States' cigar sales and is America?s largest cigar exporter.
Swisher Sweets were introduced in 1958. The product line includes Swisher Sweets Little Cigars, Cigarillos (the company's best-selling item), Tip Cigarillos, Sweet Coronellas, Wood Tips, Slims, Perfecto, Blunt, and Kings. Swisher Sweets are also available in a variety of flavors, including peach, strawberry, chocolate, grape, and tequila.
