Our Production

Developing and producing high-quality, world-class cigars doesn't happen by chance —it's in our DNA.

For many years, ACE Prime has been producing award-winning cigars for some of the most high-profile brands in the industry through Tabacalera Pichardo, our facility in Esteli, Nicaragua.

Founded by Don. Eradio Pichardo in 2005, Tabacalera Pichardo has developed an outstanding reputation for producing some of the finest cigars in the world. The Tabacalera Pichardo philosophy is an integrated approach: growing (or sourcing) the very best tobacco; ensuring the most delicate processing and aging; developing an exceptional level of skilled manufacturing; and investing in the people and local communities.

“ACE PRIME is no ordinary company. We are in the business of improving lives and producing the finest cigars in the world.” – Luciano Meirelles | Ace Prime

In 2014, Don Pichardo partnered with the Master Blender and Sommelier –Luciano Meirelles, who helped expand the production and build the business into a global cigar supplier. Tabacalera Pichardo has continued to grow and is now manufacturing premium cigars for major U.S. and international clients, including some of the most high-profile and awarded cigar brands on the market today.

Recently, Tabacalera Pichardo joined forces with ACE Prime creating an integrated vertical model.

ACE Prime is passionate about creating the finest cigars for everybody to enjoy.
