About Foundation Cigar Company

With over 20 years of love and dedication for the industry, we merge old world traditions with modern-day
styles and customs to produce unique premium cigars.

Our goal is to work with specially selected tobacconists who recognize our passion and dedication for quality artisan products.

We have developed strong relationships with some of the best tobacco growers throughout the world
and have established our production in the valley of Esteli, Nicaragua


Foundation proudly presents ten brands and counting.
Each release is thoughtfully blended and hand-rolled in a process that takes years.

We use tobacco sourced from the best farms on earth, because the leaf is the true foundation.

Foundation Cigar Company is dedicated to quality, consistency, balance, flavor, and building brands with heart and soul.
