Dapper Cigar Co. has been reworking its portfolio lately, and along with that is coming an increase in prices.
The company began informing its retailers of the changes today, which was also attributed to rising raw materials product costs. Ian Reith added that since the company had not implemented a price increase to this point, some of the lines experienced a sharper increase than others. He broke down the increases as follows:
- Cubo Sumatra — 3 to 7 percent
- La Madrina Habano — 3.4 to 11 percent
- El Borracho San Andrés — 3.5 percent
- El Borracho Maduro — 7 percent
- Union Break — 4 to 28 percent
The Desvalido, La Madrina Shade, Siempre Sun Grown and Siempre Rosado did not experience any changes. “We’re pretty US broadleaf heavy,” he noted, indicating that specific tobacco’s changing costs drove a good portion of the changes.
Reith is also trying to standardize the vitolas across Dapper’s core lines, so with some vitolas getting bigger that is necessitating the pricing adjustments as they require more tobacco to produce.
