The originators of the Acid Cigars were Jonathan Drew and Marvin Samel who created the cigars in 1995 using the name Drew Estate. The two men made the cigars on their own with imported materials. They produced a blend called La Vieja Habana, which became a success and was an inspiration and the basis of Acid Cigar production in their upcoming businesses. Their success allowed them to relocate to Nicaragua regardless of the fact that they knew the small island had been hit by a hurricane, which meant low prices and very few if any investors. Furthermore, Jonathan Drew hardly spoke a word of Spanish and the opening of the factory saw only two employees show up for work. However this did not discourage Mr. Drew from pursuing his desire to make cigars, through diligence and hard work he eventually became successful. Drew and Samel later partnered with a man called Scott Chester who owned a studio called Arielle Chester Industrial Design (ACID). The three men who had partnered for the purposes of production and marketing the cigars decided to call them Acid cigars.
