Oliva: More than a century in tobacco
Melanio Oliva first grew tobacco in Pinar Del Rio, Cuba in 1886. His growing operations were suspended while he fought in Cuba's War of Independence, but resumed after his return. In the early 1920s, Melanio's son, Hipolito Oliva, took over the growing operations. Hipolito cultivated the Oliva family's fields for several decades, but Cuba was soon overrun by communists. With the tobacco landscape changing, Hipolito's son, Gilberto Oliva, shifted the business from growing to brokering tobacco.

But by the early 60s, the pressure had become too great, leading Gilberto to travel from country to country in search of the distinct Cuban taste. Though his travels took him to Honduras, Panama, Mexico and even the Philippines, it was in Nicaragua that Gilberto finally found the fertile ground he'd been seeking. Today, Gilberto and the rest of the Olivas are Nicaragua's second largest grower of Cuban-seed tobacco.
What makes Oliva's cigars so special?
The Oliva family is known as one of the finest producers of premium handmade Nicaraguan cigars. Made in the family's multi-generational Cuban tradition by using only the most select, aged longfiller tobaccos and wrappers, their cigars consistently provide a rich-tasting and complex smoke that's never overpowering. Best of all, their cigars are priced within the means of every cigar smoker. That is especially true of the brands below.
