The re-release of the Gurkha Cigars Master Select has shipped to stores.

Gurkha Cigars has teamed up with Macallan and Hugo Boss to help raise funds for those devastated by Hurricane Irma.

Gurkha Cigars planned to acquire American Caribbean Cigars in Q1 2018, but after careful consideration have decided to pull out of the deal. Instead, they will build their own 100,000 square foot factory for the manufacturing of premium cigars for their international markets. They expect the project to take about 2 years as location scouting takes place.
