Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust has recently added Uniflame, SA, in Greece, to its growing list of International Cigar Distributors.
“For us, the focus has always been the cigars first, and if we did that right, the sales would follow,” states Steve Saka, DTT’s founder, and master blender. “We arguably have some of the least aggressive sales practices in the industry within the US market, yet we continue to grow astronomically. So much so, we have been forced three times over the last four years to enact temporary moratoriums on adding new accounts within the US to ensure both quality service and product to our existing customers.”
“Our approach has been even more lowkey and slower when it comes to International Distribution, yet that network also continues to grow. Between the Habanos restructuring and our own growth trajectory, we have been receiving numerous requests to expand our international footprint. I am very pleased that in conjunction with our factory and international distributor partners, Joya de Nicaragua, SA, we have been recently able to add Uniflame of Greece to our distribution family,” adds Saka.
With the addition of the distribution in Greece, Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust is now distributed internationally in over twenty countries.
Saka continues, “As you can see, there are many great places around the globe we have yet to expand into, but we have never actively sought out “new world” distributors. We simply wait until they express an interest, and then we go from there – for me, this is not a sprint but a marathon. That being said, I am truly looking forward to attending InterTabac 2022 in Dortmund, Germany, this month. It will be my first trip to the EU in quite a while, and I always immensely enjoy my time spent with our International partners, the team at Joya de Nicaragua, and our mutual customers!”
