Ponce Cigar Co. will be available in New Zealand beginning next month.
The company has signed a distribution agreement with Canteros Limited to have its cigars sold in New Zealand. Canteros distributes dozens of non-Cuban cigar brands in the country.
Ponce is a relatively new brand, which started selling cigars in the U.S. just last month. It currently has just a single cigar, though there are plans for more. The Ponce is a 5 1/2 x 54 robusto extra size that uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over an American broadleaf binder and fillers from the Villa González, Dominican Republic; Estelí, Nicaragua; and the U.S.A. It is made at MJ Frias Cigar SRL in the Dominican Republic.
