Regius Cigars Names New Distributor



Oscar Valladares Tobacco & Co., which is based in Houston, Texas, will begin distributing Regius Cigars on May 1st. According to Akhil Kapacee, of Regius Cigars, Oscar Valladares will store all Regius brands in Houston and ship from there.

“I am excited for this new opportunity,” said Kapacee in a press release. “It will allow us to have more operational flexibility and ensure consistent and timely delivery of the products going forward. The quality of the cigars will remain unchanged.” I just saw Akhil at a recent Regius cigar event at Woodland Hills Cigar Co. and we talked briefly about his recent move with distribution, he also told me he will sharing a booth with Oscar at the 2017 trade show in Las Vegas.



Regius Cigars, which is based in the United Kingdom, has been selling cigars since 2010, but didn’t begin selling to the U.S. market until six years ago, when Kapacee partnered with Quesada Cigars, located in the Dominican Republic. Regius is known for its Regius Exclusivo U.S.A. line as well as its Black Label brands, which are made at Plasencia Cigars in Estelí, Nicaragua, like all Regius brands.

“Regius has a very loyal following in the United States and we are proud to be able to play a part for the company in the world’s biggest cigar market,” said Oscar Valladares, president of Oscar Valladares Tobacco. Oscar Valladares also owns a factory in Honduras where it produces cigar brands such as Leaf by Oscar and Rosalila.
