Our grandfather Antonis Z. Kastis , has started the production of tobacco in the beginning of the last century with the first immigrants ,who came for work to Leros. The production took place in Gourna and Paertheni of Leros. The Tobacco was channeled to Asia Minor with the (((sink))) of the brother of Antonis Kastis so as to ensure the exchange of the products and also of the raw materials and goods .
When the Italian arrived in Leros, they discovered the excellent quality of tobacco, which was produced by the family Kastis. So they bought it , made the bundling and saved the tobacco in a building ,in which the factory TEMI was housed( TABACCO EGEO MANIFATURE ITALIANO).Today this building is the National Bank. The Tobacco , after being packed , was transferred to Rhodes , so as to produce the Italian RODI cigarettes . The farming and production was continued till 1933. After the integration of Dodecanese , the Greek tobacco factories recognized the work of the Kastis family in the realm of tobacco and so the family was introduced to be the representative of the wholesale and retail of Tobacco in Leros but also in Lipsi and Patmo and one and one. In these years , the business extended and today after four generations we still continue the tradition of the tobacco business.
The Tobacco Store is today located in Lakki of Leros , in the central road of Basiliou Georgiou 11. There , we have created a fantastic space for the cigar lovers , so that we reserve the excellent quality of the cigars. You will find in our store a wide range of cigar and cigarette brands , but also newspapers , magazines and last but not least gadgets and accessories for smokers.
