Joya De Nicaragua was established in 1968, making it the very first and oldest premium handmade cigar manufacturer in Nicaragua. Located in the city of Esteli which has come to be known as the tobacco capital of the world. Joya De Nicaragua S.A is 100% Nicaraguan owned and operated. They develop, manufacture and market the internationally renowned cigar brand in over 40 countries.
The history of Joya goes hand in hand with Nicaragua’s evolution over the last five decades. Nicaragua is one of the most complex and enchanting countries in Latin America. The richness of their history allows them to be conscious and humbled of who they are. As a result it allows them to talk about their experiences with authenticity.
In 2017 the Cuatro Cinco Double Robusto was the first Nicaraguan cigar to be awarded UK Cigar of the Year at a special ceremony in London.
Today, Joya are the most internationally recognized brand of Nicaragua, and are certainly proud to celebrate their 50th Anniversary 1968- 2018!
