Effective July 1, Vandermarliere Family of Cigars (VCF) will be the distributor of E.P. Carrillo products in Italy.

VCF is the same group that owns Oliva Cigar Co., which itself has become a recent collaborator with E.P. Carrillo. Last year, the two companies created cigars for one another; Oliva made the Perez-Carrillo Allegiance, while Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. made the Cuba Aliados by Ernesto Perez-Carrillo which is sold by Oliva.

On June 23, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr. and Fred Vandermarliere will be in Florence, Italy for an event to kick off the new distribution agreement. VCF Italy expects E.P. Carrillo cigars to begin arriving in Italy on July 1.
