Illusione coming to the United Arab Emirates soon. At the Intertabac trade show, Illusione and Leaf Masters finalized the negotiations. And that results in a distribution agreement for the United Arab Emirates. The United Arab Emirates are a seven independent city states in a federation. Those city states are Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Umm al-Qaiwain, Fujairah, Ajman, and Ra’s al-Khaimah
The 15-year-old American cigar brand was founded by tobacconist Dion Giolito as a private label for his cigar shop in Reno, Nevada. But the brand was picked up by Cigar Aficionado and the demand grew. It grew so much that Giolito decided to release it nationwide. And since a few years, the company is growing internationally. Partially with independent distributors, partially with Davidoff as a distribution partner in other countries such as the United Kingdom.
In the United Arab Emirates, Illusione partners up with Leaf Masters. Leaf Masters isn’t a new player in the cigar market. They are responsible for the distribution for other premium handmade cigars in the region as well.
As of yet, Ministry of Cigars doesn’t have the information which Illusione lines will be available in the United Arab Emirates. Or if the cigars will be available at the duty-free shops at the major airports in the area. But as soon as we found out, we will report.
Recently Ministry of Cigars reviewed the Illusione Rothchildes.
