At lunch during the final day at the Nicaraguan Cigar Festival, Carlos Fuente Jr. announced plans to open a new Arturo Fuente factory. The factory will be named La Bella y La Bestia and will be constructed in the heart of Estelí, Nicaragua’s cigar making capital.

The Fuente family bought the Fincas Las Lima’s farm outside of Estelí three years ago and are currently cultivating their fourth crop at the farm but today’s announcement marks the first time the Fuentes are making cigars in Nicaragua since the 1980s.
