Foundation Cigar Company Releases Short Film – Seed To Cigar

Not all of us have had the honor of traveling to Nicaragua, Honduras or the Dominican Republic and for those who haven’t the art of making cigars is often lost. Foundation has released a time-lapse video sharing the extensive process about how their cigars are made. The 11-minute video spans an entire year, though the whole process to create a cigar can take much longer due to tobacco aging and long fermentation periods.

The video takes place in Estelí, Nicaragua and breaks down the technique into a number of steps, from seed beds, to curing, productions, molds, quality control, and more. It’s a fascinating look inside a remarkable operation and also showcases the many people involved from beginning to end.

Foundation Cigars makes Charter Oak, El Gueguense, Tabernacle, Tabernacle CT 142, The Wise Man Maduro and The Upsetters.
