Rolling Pappy Van Winkle Cigars

While the heart of the Pappy brand is in Bourbon County, Kentucky, the production team, who handcrafts the Pappy Van Winkle Barrel Fermented Cigars, are only found in Estelí, Nicaragua. This small production team was personally selected by Jonathan Drew, the founder of Drew Estate, who is proud to admit that he is personally in charge of choosing each leaf destined to become Pappy Van Winkle Barrel Fermented Cigars.

The Drew Estate factory has a unique subculture that is known to cigar aficionados throughout the world. Quality, consistency, and tradition meet innovation, creativity, and imagination in the temple-like facility that JD calls home. We work as a team on everything we create and produce. Pappy Van Winkle Barrel Fermented Cigars are an explosion of distinct taste and aroma, created to pair perfectly with all the different whiskeys from around the globe, especially Pappy Van Winkle.

We invite you to come meet the full team right here at the factory in Estelí, Nicaragua on one of our Cigar Safari tours. We begin tours in October and end in May. Each tour is an adventure in passion and life. We welcome you to our home, so please visit for an introduction.
