One of the most, impressive cigar factories in all Central America. Our old factory in Esteli was home to us for nearly a decade, its amazing to think of the many millions of cigars that we were able to produce there. Cigars are so much more than the factory they are made in, it is the people who make them that really make it special. Viva Estelianos! You are the best!
We purchased a pristine piece of land overlooking a valley and tobacco fields, and broke ground for our factory in September 2006.
Opening in July of 2007, La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate is truly a sight to behold. At over 96,000 sq. feet, it is the largest cigar factory in Nicaragua and one of the five largest premium cigar factories in the world. While others have built simple, economical cinder block cube-like structures, we understood the importance of making our factory special. It isn’t just the place where we make 94,000 handmade cigars a day, it is a reflection of who we are and what Drew Estate means.
We invite all cigar lovers to visit and see first-hand the positive vibrations that emanate from hundreds of chavetas clicking in our grand salon. From its’ stunning architecture, endless hand painted murals and bright, open work atmosphere, this factory has “wowed” everyone that has had the privilege of a tour. Art is a very big part of the La Gran Fabrica experience, at every turn large colorful murals and intricate border paintings adorn nearly each and every wall. A mixture of Nicaraguan culture and brand inspired art is painted by the talented artists of Drew Estate’s Subculture Studio.
All this, and..
We’re Just Getting Started
