The first tobacco plantations in what is now the Dominican Republic were founded five hundred years ago. For most of that time, the Dominican cigar industry was fragmented and primarily focused on growing tobacco. That changed in the 1960s with the influx of prominent Cuban cigar makers. Today, the Dominican Republic is the world’s largest producer of premium cigars.

Legend has it that Nicaragua’s dictator only realized the importance of his country’s cigar industry when he was presented a Nicaraguan after-dinner cigar on a visit to the White House in 1971. It would take three more decades of revolution, civil war, natural disasters and the 1990s cigar boom-bust cycle for Nicaragua to carve out its present leading position in the world of cigars – a testament to the resilience of the people of Nicaragua.
