Cornelius & Anthony is coming to Germany. Tabac Benden, known for Cigarworld and the La Casa del Habano in Dusseldorf, will be importing and distributing the brand.
The cigar will be released at the same time as the release in The Netherlands and Sweden. And there are more similarities to the distribution. The same lines will be distributed. The same sizes will be distributed. And both countries will be able to order the latest Cornelius & Anthony blends, The Mistress and The Gent, later this year.
Just like in The Netherlands the Cornelius line won’t be available in Germany. The reason for that is the extra import tax on American-made tobacco products.
The cigars and the prices
Germany also works with fixed tobacco prices. The importer/distributor sets the price, based upon the factory price, shipping, taxes and includes the profit margins for the shops and the distribution. That price is the price for which retailer can sell the cigars until the distributor changes the price. Discounts or mark-ups are prohibited. A discount is allowed when buying a whole box though.
