Plasencia Cigars will be coming to Canada thanks to a new distribution deal with Scandinavian Tobacco Group Canada (STG Canada).
“We’re very excited to build on our company’s success by going into this market with STG Canada, a distinguished leader in the industry,” said Nestor Andrés Plasencia, ceo of Plasencia Cigars, in a press release. “Canadian consumers have been long anticipating the arrival of Plasencia Cigars that our family has been proudly crafting for over 150 years. Serving our customers has always been our first priority, and we can’t wait for Canadian consumers to finally enjoy our products.”
STG Canada is part of the larger STG, which is the parent company of General Cigar Co., Cigars International and others. It’s not uncommon for cigar companies to rely on STG Canada or Kretek Canada for distribution in Canada, even though the companies might be rivals in other markets.
Plasencia’s portfolio includes Alma Del Campa, Alma Fuerte, Plasencia Cosecha 146, Reserva 1898 and Reserva Original.
