Effective immediately, Pure Aroma Cigars Inc. (D’Crossier brand) and Espinosa Premium Cigars have announced that they have ended their distribution agreement. “Unfortunately at this moment, we are having difficulties meeting distribution demands. This is a sad day for me, Erik and I started as acquaintances and quickly became like family. However, I have faith that things will quickly fall into place once again” said Santana Diaz.
Said Espinosa, “It’s unfortunate, I know how hard we have both worked over the last few years to promote his brands, but this is one of those hurdles you encounter along your way. I have no doubt that he will make the necessary adjustments.”
Espinosa and Pure Aroma Cigars Inc. have had close ties for years, with the two often sharing booths at the annual IPCPR show. In May, 2015, Espinosa began distributing Pure Aroma’s D’Crossier cigars; helping to grow the brand’s first breakout hit: Flor de D’Crossier Selection No. 512—which went on to win Cigar Dojo’s Cigar of the Year for 2015.
