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.

'Cinco Decadas pays tribute to our milestones as a company; the events that have made and shaped who we are today. But not all of the occasions were positive, some of them were paramount challenges. The embargo was one of those hard situations we confronted, but one that in retrospect allowed Joya de Nicaragua to establish itself as a truly global brand. Another great example of how the tough moments in life can actually make us better and stronger. With El Embargo, we bring to our European friends a token of gratitude for opening their arms to us during those years' said Dr Alejandro Martinez Cuenca, Chairman of Joya de Nicaragua S.A
