Debonaire Takes Over US Distribution Early

Debonaire CigarsDebonaire House was poised to take over distribution, sales and marketing of its products in the U.S. at the beginning of next year. Yesterday I get a message from Phil saying he’s has decided to do so a bit earlier, as in right now kind of earlier.

In a press release the company announced that it would end its U.S. distribution agreement with Drew Estate effective Jan. 1, 2019, choosing to distribute cigars out of a facility in the Dominican Republic. For distribution Debonaire will now be using the United Parcel Service (UPS) Cigars Direct shipping meathod, which will allow the company to ship cigars directly from its factory in the Dominican Republic to its tobacco retailers in the U.S.

In the press release Phill Zanghi III (President of Debonaire) said this about working with the DE team. “Working with the great team at Drew Estate over the past two and a half years has been a rewarding experience, I am blessed and humbled by the successful partnership our companies have enjoyed together, and likewise blessed by a twenty-year plus friendship with Jonathan Drew. Many blessings to Jonathan and Drew Estate for their partnership and support over the years.”

“Debonaire House has now reached the point where we need to possess captive distribution for our Debonaire Ultra Premium, Indian Motorcycle and Debonaire House brands, and today’s announcement is an important milestone in the ongoing evolution of our company. We are very excited about the future of the Debonaire Ideal and look forward to the next chapter in our company’s journey.”

From the Drew Estate side Jonathan Drew, President of Drew Estate had this to say “The relationship of Debonaire House and Drew Estate goes back over 20 years. We are super excited to have played a role in bringing Debonaire House Products to Market and being part of the Debonaire Ideal journey.”

Glenn Wolfson, ceo of Drew Estate also had positive words about this change in distribution. “Drew Estate will continue working with Phil and his team to help them prepare for a successful launch of their new business operations after the first of the year. Phil is a great friend, a truly honorable businessman, and he will always remain part of our Drew Estate family. I have no doubt that he and his team will be very successful in their new business venture, and we wish Debonaire House all the best.”
