Plasencia Cigars has expanded its distribution into Canada through a new partnership with Scandinavian Tobacco Group Canada.

While the Plasencias have been involved in the cigar industry for over 150 years, it wasn’t until 2016 that the name began to resonate with casual consumers, with the family debuting a self-titled brand (Plasencia Cigars) that is distributed under the Miami-based Plasencia 1865 company. Moving forward, the company’s cigars will be able to reach the Canadian market, growing Plasencia Cigars’ reach to over 500 retailers worldwide.



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. 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.Nestor Andrés Plasencia, CEO of Plasencia Cigars

STG administers over 200 brands in more than 100 markets around the world, with STG Canada being the leading premium and mass market cigar company in Canada.

We have been fans of Plasencia Cigars for years. We couldn’t be happier to welcome the Plasencia family into our own, and I’m sure Canadians will appreciate the diversity and high quality of these new cigars.Sylvain Laporte, president of STG Canada
