Arturo Fuente Cigars Description

When in stock, Arturo Fuente cigars don't last very long - and rightfully so. The Fuente family has been making some of the world's finest cigars for generations, living by the credo, "We will never rush the hands of time." Arturo Fuente cigars are handmade mostly with Cameroon wrappers, while the Chateau Fuente selection features Connecticut wrappers with cedar sleeves. Be sure to add these VERY popular cigars to Your Favorites page so you won't ever miss out on them.

The Arturo Fuente Story

The legendary Fuente family history is one that might be easier to make into a film than to summarize in a series of paragraphs. Their story begins in 1887 Cuba, the year Arturo Fuente was born. From the time he was a child, his father taught him how to cultivate prime tobacco and make handmade cigars. Overcoming several setbacks over the years, the company continues to thrive, and today Arturo Fuente cigars are made in the Dominican Republic.

Some people might presume that the Fuente family was part of the post Cuban Revolution exile, but the family left Cuba in 1906. Resettling in Key West, Florida, Arturo found work as a cigar roller, and eventually the family moved to Ybor City in Tampa (at the time, the cigar capital of the world.) Then in 1912, as his reputation for making excellent cigars grew, the first cigars to bear the Fuente family name were produced. Until 1961 when the U.S. embargo went into effect, the cigars were made with imported Cuban tobacco. There was a six year period from 1924-1930 when damage from a fire destroyed the factory, but success continued then as it does today.

Almost as legendary as his father was Arturo's son, Carlos. Like his father, Carlos was born into the cigar business and learned every aspect of the trade. Years later, Don Arturo passed the business on to Carlos and when Carlos Fuente, Jr., was born, just like his father and grandfather, Carlos Jr. (a.k.a. "Carlito") learned the business. Since the 1990's cigar boom, Carlos Fuente, Jr. has been "the face" of Arturo Fuente Cigars.

In 1980, production moved to the Dominican Republic, where began growing their own tobaccos at the family's private estate plantation, Chateau de la Fuente. It's at there that Carlos and Carlito developed the company's most famous cigars, the Fuente Fuente OpusX selection. "OpusX" cigars were the first Arturo Fuente Cigars to be made with an all-Dominican filler, binder and wrapper, and though it took years to develop this extraordinary leaf, until the Fuentes arrived, other cigar makers had no success growing quality wrapper leaf in the Dominican Republic.

"We are a family business," said Carlos Fuente, Jr. "Our factories and our plantations comprise our family 'kitchen.' By staying in the kitchen, we're able to consistently produce outstanding tobacco leaves and rich flavored, perfectly balanced cigars that please cigar aficionados every time, everywhere. And because tobacco is in our blood, that is all my family and I ever aspired to achieve."
