Ventura Cigar Company announced the acquisition of Cuban Cigar Factory, a boutique, craft cigar business based out of San Diego, CA. The family-run Cuban Cigar Factory has been producing cigars for over 20 years. Ventura Cigar Company plans to increase distribution of these blends through their sales channels, introducing the products to new audiences.
“We’re excited about bringing Cuban Cigar Factory into the fold of Ventura Cigar Company,” says Benjamin Winokur, Marketing Manager at Ventura. “Their reputation in the industry is admirable; we’re pleased to breathe new life into their blends and release them on a national scale.”
Mark Cassar, CEO of Kretek added, “We’re always looking for those hidden gems, there are amazing cigar-makers out there, but without distribution, they go largely undiscovered. We’re pleased to play an integral part in bringing new experiences and expertise to our customers, along with the traditions of exploring and savoring unique blends.”
Once launched (in 2018), the blends will be distributed through Phillips & King, along with Ventura Cigar Company’s other brands and products.
