Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust (DTT) cigars are now available in the Belgium and Luxembourg markets. A distribution agreement has been met, and all retail distribution will be through Media Rueda. DTT was founded back in 2015 by Steve Saka. Saka was the former Executive Consultant to JR Cigar and former President and CEO of Drew Estate. Included in the Dunbarton portfolio are the Sobremesa, Mi Querida, Todos Las Dias, Sin Compromiso, Umbagog, and the Muestra de Saka lines.
From the official press release on the distribution agreement, Steve Saks says: “When I began Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust, I had a single purpose in mind: to create handmade cigars of the absolute best quality, crafted of the finest leaf that is harvested and to never concern myself with market trends, price points or the dozen other business issues that any sane person would.” He added, “This “puros sin compromise” (cigars without compromise) approach has made our company’s puros not only among the best but some of the most sought after amongst educated, experienced cigar smokers. While I had faith in my ability to craft exceptional cigars, I never could have imagined just how successful our small family company would become in only a few years.”
Also, from the press release, David Larou, partner at Media Rueda, said: “We are beyond excited to bring Steve’s cigars to our markets. When previewing our plans to some of our trusted retail partners, reactions have been overwhelmingly positive. We start with a limited selection today, including Sobremesa, Mi Querida, and Sin Compromiso. We are convinced they will be a big success, and local cigar lovers looking for a smoking experience ‘without compromise’ will quickly learn to appreciate Steve’s products. We plan on extending our selection from DTT’s portfolio later this year.”
