Esteli, Nicaragua - The 1980s were a critical decade for Nicaragua and Nicaraguan cigars. Two events were fundamental in shaping the country’s history during that decade: the civil war and the economic embargo, declared by the United States against the Central American nation in 1985. The embargo became an enormous obstacle for Nicaraguan products, as they were prohibited from entering the US Market, and its citizens could no longer enjoy Nicaraguan crafted cigars. But once more from obstacles came opportunity. With its primary market forbidden indefinitely, Joya de Nicaragua had to seek alternatives to sell its cigars. This is how Joya de Nicaragua found in Europe one of its greatest allies, emerging as the first brand of Nicaraguan cigars to be enjoyed in the old world, and eventually becoming one of the best known Nicaraguan brands around the globe.
