Founders Cigar Co. have announced their company will debut the new blends and packaging at the 2023 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) tradeshow located in Las Vegas from July 8-11.
Furthermore Founders announced they have moved their manufacturing of most of their blends to the Tabacalera Las Lavas SRL factory located in The Dominican Republic. Tabacalera Las Lavas is owned by the family behind Casa Cuevas Cigars.
“We’re pumped for this next chapter in the Founders story and couldn’t be happier than to have the knowledge, quality, and expertise from a factory as reputable as the one we’ve chosen. Luis and Alec Cuevas were incredibly generous last year sharing with us the knowledge they have gained over the years growing their own brand. Working with them now as a factory has been incredible to dive into the factory process and learn from such a storied family.”, shared Angelo Fraboni, Co- Founder of Founders Cigars.
All but one of the blends (Hamilton Candela) Founders currently offers will now be manufactured by Tabacalera Las Lavas, whereas all 5 blends had previously been manufactured by M.J. Frias in the Dominican Republic.
While in the process of moving factories, Founders Cigar Co also updated their bands and boxes and selected Humberto Arias to redesign the bands and boxes.
