The collaboration between Corleone Cigars and Tabolisa will notably allow the premium brand to expand its production and develop special and exclusive series that will be revealed throughout the year 2020.
Launched in March 2018, Corleone Cigars creates and markets a range of six modules made from the finest tobacco, selected in Peru, Nicaragua, Santo Domingo and Ecuador. The company now distributes its cigars in 15 countries around the world and is currently preparing for its arrival on the North American market where the marketing of its references is expected in the United States this year.
Tabolisa, a new Corleone Cigars Tabacalera
As part of its development, Corleone Cigars, which until now has produced its modules in Costa Rica, has entered into a partnership with the Tabolisa factories in Nicaragua. 95% of the range will now be produced in Esteli.
“If this decision is part of my desire to accelerate the development of Corleone by increasing production significantly, it was also born from a meeting with local teams and a solid friendship with the Nicaraguan master blenders and production managers “, underlines Alexandre Elami, CEO and founder of Corleone Cigars.
2020, a year of creativity and innovation
Within the framework of this partnership, Corleone Cigars is working on the creation of new special series in very limited quantities. The Cig’Art series, scheduled for summer 2020, will offer different modules in boxes signed by international artists. The new Cosca production – whose name which can be translated as Family or Clan, assumes its direct filiation with the Sicilian village Corleone at the origins of the brand – promises to be a module comparable to the excellence of Cuban cigars among the most famous and cannot be found today. Finally, in addition to older cigars also announced in 2020, Corleone Cigars is currently preparing, as a world premiere, a range of cigars aged in champagne barrels in the cellars of one of the most prestigious Champagne houses.
