The Oliva Tobacco Co., based in Tampa, is a grower and broker of cigar tobacco. They're regarded as one of the best in the business, and it's a bragging point to say you have Oliva tobacco in one of your cigars. Among other products, they grow Sumatra seed wrapper in Ecuador for the Ashton VSG, among many other brands. They do not make cigars.
Oliva Cigar Co., based in Miami Lakes, Florida, is not related. They make cigars in Nicaragua and also grow tobacco in Nicaragua. They've been around for a good ten years now, and they make some exceptional cigars.
No relation between the companies. I don't know of Oliva Cigar uses any Oliva Tobacco tobacco in their products.
