El Artista Cigars has announced that its cigars will now be for sale in Austria. This comes about as part of a partnership with Dios Tobaco located in Wiener Neustadt. Austria is the seventh country in Europe to gain El Artista distribution. The three brands that will be available are: Cimarron, Big Papi by David Ortiz, and Buffalo Ten.
Ram Rodriguez, President of El Artista Cigars says, “Despite the challenges of the first half of the year we have continued to sell and develop long-lasting relationships, albeit long-distance relationship style, and Dios Tobaco is evidence of our continued commitment to grow in Europe”.
El Artista Cigars has distributed with Dios Tobaco previously. “We have known each other for a long time now, they know our quality, how we do business, and we have come to respect one another. I am proud to have Dios Tobaco as our exclusive distributor in Austria,” says Rodriguez.
According to Johaan Gallee, President of Dios Tabaco “[The Company] was founded in 1999 by Wolfgang and Marlies Held. I bought the Company in 2019 after 20 successful years. I continue in their spirit. I distribute some major brands, boutiques and specialty European Producers. I am always searching for new interesting cigars and brands for our market and I feel El Artista Cigars has a good place in our market”.
The first cigars will go on sale in Austria on June 27, 2020. There will be in-store events with Rodriguez that start in 2021.
