Founders Cigar Co. is updating the look and shifting the bulk of the portfolio to Tabacalera Las Lavas. Only the Hamilton Candela remains being made at M.J. Frias cigars, where prior to the move all Founders Cigars were made. Tabacalera Las Lavas is the factory from the Cuevas family.

Moving to Tabacalera Las Lavas gives the company greater access to quality tobaccos and deeper involvement in the blending process, according to a press release.

“We’re pumped for this next chapter in the Founders story and couldn’t be happier than to have the knowledge, quality, and expertise from a factory as reputable as the one we’ve chosen,” said Angelo Fraboni, co-founder of Founders Cigars, via a press release. “Luis and Alec Cuevas were incredibly generous last year sharing with us the knowledge they have gained over the years growing their own brand. Working with them now as a factory has been incredible to dive into the factory process and learn from such a storied family.”
