As part of a partnership with American Caribbean Cigar (ACG), Gurkha Cigars will overtake the existing ACG factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. Several Gurkha offerings have long been produced at the factory. Now, Gurkha reps say it’s time to take production to the next level.
“Owning our own factory will allow us to take better control of our inventory. It opens up the possibility of factory tours, which would bring customers closer to our brands,” said Eddy Guerra, Gurkha Director of Marketing.
Not all Gurkha sticks will be made at the Nicaragua facility, however. Guerra says the company will continue to work with other existing outlets.
