Arturo Fuente Cigars Company will be celebrating their 100th year of dedication and hard work in the cigar industry this year. This family owned company was established in 1912 and is operated in the Dominican Republic. It started with humble beginnings of Fuente blending and rolling cigars in the back of his own house with his wife and became a global benchmark for the cigar industry.
Arturo Fuente’s main focus was making quality cigars with quality tobacco, craftsmanship and patients to make a remarkable cigar that is loved by many. In 1912 Aurturo Fuente came to the US and founded his cigar company in Tampa FL at the age of 24. All the cigars at this point were handmade with Cuban tobacco. Tragedy struck in 1924 when his factory burned down while Fuente was in Cuba buying tobacco. By 1940 Arturo Fuente started making cigars again. When his two children became school aged, he added rolling 50 cigars each to their homework every day after school.
In 1962, after the Cuban Revolution, Carlos Arturo Fuente was in Cuba and after hearing about the possible trade embargo, he decided to by as much Cuban tobacco as he could so he purchased a 3 year supply of Cuban tobacco. In 1978 the Arturo Fuente Company experienced another factory fire in Honduras. Losing a factory once again was proving to be another setback, luckily they could still produce cigars in the Ybor City FL location, but they were nearing bankruptcy.
In 1980 Carlos Fuente opened Fuente LTD in Santiago, Dominican Republic. The following year, the Hemingway series was released. This unique shape was the first of its kind in the industry and helped to finally put the company on the global map. 100 years later the Fuente family continues to make the world’s finest cigars for generations to come.
