After introductions in the U.S. and parts of Europe, the new Camacho is headed to Canada. The Honduran brand, a subsidiary of Davidoff, announced that it would be available through Distribution GVA, a Quebec-based distributor who handles Davidoff, Arturo Fuente, J.C. Newman and others.

“We, at Distribution GVA, are very excited to now provide Canadians Tobacconists (sic) & consumers the new Camacho Connecticut, Corojo & Triple Maduro lines,” said Vincent Albanese, president and ceo of Distribution GVA, in a press release. “I am proud to say that our continued partnership with Camacho allows us to offer such high quality premium cigars at competitive prices. 

Last summer, almost five years after Davidoff purchased the Camacho brand from the Eiroa family, the company unveiled a major revamp that included a total rework of packaging, many updated blends, new marketing strategy and changes at the company’s factory in Honduras.

“Our success with the relaunch of Camacho now spans across six countries and two continents,” said Dylan Austin, director of marketing for Davidoff of Geneva USA. “Even though Canada is one ofthe more restrictive markets for premium cigars, we have big plans for this newterritory and a very good partner in Distribution GVA.”
