1700s CIGAR BOOM: CIGAR FACTORIES SPREAD ACROSS EUROPE

During the 1700s, tobacco became big business for European countries. While taxation and punishment evolved during the 1600s, the 1700s were characterized by the growing popularity and development of the tobacco industry. During this period cigar factories opened in Rome, France, and Germany among other countries.

- In 1717 King Felipe V of Spain organizes a monopoly on the cultivation of tobacco in Cuba. Cubans will be relegated to growing tobacco for the "Mother" country for the next hundred years, instead of developing their own Cigar industry.

- The tobacco monopoly in Cuba sparks a strong sense of resentment that extends far beyond the tobacco industry and continues to ferment all the way up to the Spanish-American War in 1898.

- For the purposes of taxation, the distinction was made between raw or un-manufactured tobacco and manufactured tobacco: a standard which continues today.
