Phil S. Zanghi III, the founder of Debonaire House, has launched a new distribution company that will cover countries throughout Central America and Latin America.

LanZang Investment Internacional will distribute premium cigars, machine-made cigars, blunt wraps, tobacco cones and other tobacco products; a testament to Zanghi’s own diverse tobacco interests.

For premium cigars, it will include the distribution of Debonaire House, Indian Motorcycle Cigars—which Zanghi produces—and De Los Reyes.

Zanghi says distribution for the premium cigars will start next month in the following countries:

  • Argentina
  • Bolivia
  • Brazil
  • Chile
  • Colombia
  • Ecuador
  • Panama
  • Peru
  • Uruguay

“I’ve worked for many years distributing products in Latin America,” said Zanghi III in a press release. “I have a great partnership there and we want to help build the premium cigar culture and market in Latin America.”

Distribution will take place from Zanghi’s facility in the Colón Free Trade Zone in Panama.
