Nica Rustica

Released in 2013, the Nica Rustica El Brujito by Drew Estate is a tribute to Esteli (Nicaragua), its people, and the leaf that is grown there. Jonathan Drew of Drew Estates calls it ‘El Brujito’, meaning ‘Witch Doctor’ or to the locals of Esteli, ‘The Shaman’. Witch doctors are deep in the history of Esteli and in ancient times used tobacco in healing and ceremonial rituals. This is why every box of the Nica Rustica El Brujito has the symbol of The Shaman on the lid.
