Gurkha has signed a deal with Kretek International Canada for distribution.

“Canadians represent the largest percentage of non-U.S. citizens vacationing in the United States,” said Kaizad Hansotia, ceo of Gurkha, in a press release. “As a result of these travels Canadians are asking their local retailers to carry more Gurkha cigars. We decided that we needed to have a larger sales effort in Canada. Gurkha only partners with the best and Kretek is both highly respected and highly efficient, they will be key to the expansion of Gurkha nation.”

Kretek International Canada is a division of Kretek International, Inc., which includes Phillips & King and Ventura Cigar Co.
