Europe and, to some extend Eastern Europe, has an extremely heterogenous cigar market, the polar opposite of the US market. Each EU state has its own set of rules, laws and taxation regime in relation to cigar distribution and it can be extremely costly for an overseas brand with no physical presence to penetrate this market and start distributing products in Europe.
The cigar market constitutes a niche segment (within the tobacco products market) which, in recent years, has attracted significant attention as a potential growth driver. Just as craft beers or premium spirits, cigars might buck the general secular trend of declining alcohol and tobacco volumes sales as sophisticated consumers (another major difference with the US market) consume less in total but are willing to spend more on each individual occasion to maximise indulgence.
Our core aspiration is to be your European partner of choice giving you access to our European cigar distribution network and a broad array of tailor-made services.
