Black Star Line Cigars has announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with Illusione Cigars.
“This is going to be a great partnership,” said Aric Bey, founder of Black Star Line Cigars, via a press release. “We are a very small organization that is growing extremely fast. It is to the point we needed help with the growth and advice on how to grow bigger. Illusione with definitely be able to help us achieve those goals,” he added.
Bey launched Black Star Line Cigars in 2019, and currently produces its cigars at El Titan de Bronze in Miami, Fla. and Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua. The company recently announced that it has added Binny’s Beverage Depot in Chicago to its list of retailers, which marked an achievement not only in terms of the brand’s growth, but had special meaning for Bey as he is a Chicago native and served on the city’s fire department.
The move adds to a growing portfolio of brands that Illusione distributes, a group that includes German Engineered Cigars, Carolina Blue Cigars, Amendola Cigars, Casdagli, Wildfire, Casa 1910, Apostate, Toscano and Cavalier Gèneve.
