Arturo Fuente

Arturo Fuente Cigars

Arturo Fuente cigars were founded in West Tampa, Florida in 1912 by a Cuban émigré of the same name. Though the company has withstood many obstacles, through hard work and perseverance, it has become one of the most critically acclaimed cigar manufacturers outside of Cuba.

The Story of Arturo Fuente

When Arturo Fuente first established his cigar brand, he quickly grew it to employ 500 workers in 12 years. However, disaster struck in 1924 when the wooden factory was burned to the ground, and it took the company 22 years to resume production again.

After relaunching the brand in the back of his home with his wife and some relatives, the Fuente business flourished, though not without any setbacks. The business was passed down to Arturo Fuente’s son, Carlos Fuente, Sr., in 1958. While he had plans for expansion within the US, the production was moved to Nicaragua due to labour costs. Unfortunately, another fire destroyed this factory in 1979, and the Fuente family was forced to start fresh again. They moved to the Dominican Republic with just 7 employees, working tirelessly to rebuild their company from the ground up.

With passion and a deep understanding of how to create beautiful cigars, Carlos, Sr. eventually grew the company to produce more than 30 million hand-rolled cigars per year. It is now one of the most popular and celebrated makers of hand-rolled premium cigars in the world.

Are Arturo Fuente Cigars Good?

Though Arturo Fuente provides options at both affordable and luxury price points, the quality of their cigars is never in question. If they are known for anything, it is for producing hand-rolled cigars that match premium tobacco blends with unparalleled craftsmanship.

The Fuente family has always invested in high-quality tobacco and they even began to farm their own in the Dominican Republic. Now, the Cuban-seed tobacco grown on the Fuente tobacco farm fills their flagship line, Fuente Fuente OpusX, which has received multiple nods from Cigar Aficionado.

With such deep dedication to creating premium cigars that compete directly with Cuban cigars, Arturo Fuente has remained one of the most respected brands in the industry.

Where are Arturo Fuente cigars made?

Arturo Fuente currently owns the brands Arturo Fuente, Hemingway, Don Carlos, and Fuente Fuente OpusX. All of Arturo Fuente’s cigars are made across three factories in the Dominican Republic by hand.
