Gurkha Cigars will acquire American Caribbean Cigars out of Esteli, Nicaragua to be the company’s first proprietary factory. The companies have been partnering for over 5 years and produce more than 5 million sticks per year from this location.
Our company has seen rapid growth despite its boutique approach. Owning our own factory is a natural transition and the next strategic step in being able to continue to satisfy the needs of Gurkha fans worldwide.Kaizad Hansotia, CEO of Gurkha Cigars
American Caribbean Cigars began producing Gurkha products 5 years ago and produced about 150,000 sticks the first year. The partnership grew strong and demand increased and just this year the factory produced over 5 million sticks. The factory will be the location where all small batch boutique blends are created.
I have always supported Gurkha owning our own factory. Owning our own factory allows us to have better control our quality and consistency of our product. I have no doubt that the future is bright for Gurkha.Juan Lopez, National Sales Director, Gurkha Cigars
With the purchase of American Caribbean Cigars the company can provide more access to Gurkha and its process of producing some of the world’s finest cigars.

We are very proud of the quality produced out of American Caribbean Cigars and they have been outstanding partners for Gurkha.Eddy Guerra, Director of Marketing, Gurkha Cigars
