Where Does Our Tobacco Comes From?

Nicaragua Dominican Republic Honduras Ecuador Mexico Peru Columbia

OLIVIA TOBACCO CO – TAMPA, FLORIDA

Tabanero Cigars sources it’s tobacco from Olivia Tobacco Company, a large supplier right here in Tampa, Florida! Olivia supplies Tabanero with some of the best tobacco from Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, and Columbia.

For Tabanero, tobacco selection is critical. Oftentimes we will open 5 or more bails containing the same tobacco leaf to find the exact leaf we are looking for. We are very particular when it comes to selecting tobacco. It must have the right aroma and thickness to use in our blends and different sizes we hand roll.

THE PROCESS AFTER PICKING THE LEAVES

How we make the best cigars

Back to Tabanero

After we pick the best leaves we take the tobacco back to our factory in Tampa, Florida to prepare it.

Prepare the Tobacco

We wet the wrapper and hang it inside a sealed closet for 24 hours in order for the veins to get the right humidity.

Flatten the Leaves

The tobacco is flattened and then re-hung inside for another 24 hours.

Bundle the Leaves

After 48 hours, the leaves are stripped and bundled into 40-50 leaf packs then given to our Cuban Artisans to roll into our cigars.
