In 2012, the family behind Arturo Fuente cigars celebrated 100 years of hard work, dedication and family tradition. When the business was established in 1912, the Arturo Fuente would have never dreamed that his passion for cigars owuld become a global benchmark for the cigar industry. He started his company with the most humble beginnings, rolling and blending cigars in the back of his house with his loving wife and two sons. Four generations later, the company is still owned and operated by Arturo Fuente’s descendants. The cigars are grown and rolled in the Dominican Republic, the counterpart to Cuba as they say.
