Business as usual :

Zwevegem, 12 March 2020 – Cigar brand Oliva presents a unique and fun behind-the-scenes glimpse at its Nicaraguan cigar factory in a new video clip.

The new video clip is titled “Business as usual” and is just over three minutes long. It reveals that cigars have been made at the Oliva tobacco plantation for more than 130 years, spanning four generations. However, much has changed during the past three years, including the implementation of innovative technologies and the opening of the new Tabolisa II cigar factory in Estelli, Nicaragua’s cigar capital.


But despite all these changes, the video clip shows that Oliva continues to use traditional, authentic cigar production methods. And this clearly involves plenty of fun, leisure and the unrivalled satisfaction of a perfectly rolled cigar …


The “Business as usual” clip has been produced by Cnocspot and filmed on location in Esteli, Nicaragua. We are offering it in preview form to you here.
