Colombia is a northern country nestled next to the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. Due to its close proximity to the ocean, tobacco has been cultivated in Colombia since the early colonial days.
Where is tobacco grown in Colombia?
Because of Colombia’s rich topsoil and subsoil, and ample amounts of yearly precipitation, many cigar companies source their premium tobacco from one main region of Colombia:
- Montes de Maria
About Montes de Maria Tobacco:
With Colombia’s long history in tobacco production, they’ve formulated a distinctive cutting and drying process that has allowed them to produce a blend of tobacco that’s heavily used as a filler tobacco by many major brands across the globe.
It’s their almost primitive and consistent usage of wood boxes, wooden sheds, and natural elements that has allowed Montes de Maria to put their stake in the sand as a go-to destination for equisitie filler tobacco.
