Swiss-based Cavalier Genève has announced that it will enter the U.S. market as part of a new distribution agreement with Dallas-based Cigar Art.
The relatively new company will formally debut the line for the American market at the 2016 IPCPR Convention in late July, though the cigars will likely arrive in some stores before then.
Currently, the company has one line—White Series—which features three sizes: Diplomate (5 1/2 x 56, $9.75), Elegantes (4 1/2 x 52, $9.50) and Medio (3 1/2 x 58, $8.75).
The brand is owned by Sébastien Decoppet. He traveled to Honduras to create the cigar.
“Our goal is to increase the aficionado’s experience by delivering premium and exclusive quality,” said Decoppet, in a press release. “The question of cigars is first about love. Everything we do is about respecting the cigar, and stepping out of the crowd with exceptional flavor.”
The company has declined to disclose the blend.
