Gurkha Cigars opens Cigar Lounge at Artisan in India

Gurkha Cigars has opened its first cigar lounge in India. Cigar Lounge at Artisan, within the Hotel Sofitel Mumbai BKC is located in the heart of Mumbai’s financial business district’s Bandra Kurla complex.

The grand opening was hosted by Anish Trivedi, a prominent Indian radio and theatre personality as well as a cigar enthusiast himself in conjunction with Biswajit Chakraborty, general manager of Hotel Sofitel Mumbai BKC, and Danny Carroll, Brand Ambassador India for Gurkha Cigars. More than 300 guests were treated to Gurkha cigars along with complementary glasses of Single Malt Scotch.

“We have been seeing sales of our super-premium cigars rise steadily in the Asian and Indian markets over the past few years so it just made sense to expand that experience by opening a cigar lounge where cigar aficionados can enjoy a more comprehensively elegant cigar smoking experience,” said Kaizad Hansotia, Founder and CEO of Gurkha Cigars.

“The Hotel Sofitel Mumbai BKC is a hub for unique luxury experiences. In keeping with that theme, it was the ideal choice for the Cigar Lounge at Artisan to open, allowing for the discerning customer to unwind with internationally acclaimed cigars in a sophisticated environment,” said Biswajit Chakraborty.
