As of Jan. 1, 2023, West Tampa Tobacco Co. cigars are available in Ireland and Latvia.

The company announced that it signed distribution agreements with The Decent Cigar Emporium for Ireland and Tabakas Nams Grupa for Latvia. As part of these agreements, the company’s cigars went on sale at the start of 2023.

West Tampa Tobacco Co. is a relatively new company from Rick Rodriguez and Gus Martinez, both longtime General Cigar Co. employees. It debuted with two lines—Black and White—in 2022 and launched its third line, the limited edition Attic Series, in late 2022. All three blends are produced at Garmendia Cigars Co. in Estelí.

The company says its cigars are offered in more than 20 countries.
