Honduras is located in Central America, just northwest of another major cigar producing country, Nicaragua.
With its fertile soil and great climate conditions that allows numerous varieties of tobacco seeds to thrive. Honduras is even home to a type of wild tobacco that was used by indigenous people for hundreds of years.
The history of Honduran cigars in many ways resembles that of it’s neighboring country to the south, Nicaragua. Being that both of these countries are neighbors, both countries have been prone to the same problems with a history of civil unrest through wars and has had their share of natural disasters.
It was the nationalization of the Cuban cigar industry that helped the Honduran cigar industry begin to thrive upon the arrival of Cuban exiles into Honduras. This brought some of Cuba’s finest cigar producers in the 1960s to Honduras and other neighboring Central American countries in search of new land to grow tobacco and produce cigars.
Also the US trade embargo with Cuba gave an extra boost to the Honduran cigar industry. By the 1960s & 1970s the cigar industry thrived with a number of cigar plantations & factories established, Honduras produced some of the finest premium cigars in the world during that time.
