Melanio Oliva founded the Oliva Cigar Company when he began growing tobacco in Cuba’s hallowed Pinar del Rio municipality in 1886. By the early 1920s, his son, Facundo, had taken over and continued to cultivate the family fields in Cuba for several decades. Later forced out by Castro’s communist revolution of 1959, he travelled from country to country trying to replicate the amazing terroir of Cuba, passing through Honduras, Panama, Mexico and even the Philippines before finally settling upon Nicaragua as the new best place on the planet to grow his precious cigar tobacco. Today, as part of the J. Cortès group, Oliva stands as the second largest Cuban-seed tobacco grower in the country.
