Havana.- The Central American market sells some two million units of Cuban cigars, being Cohiba the leading brand in the region.
Distribution of the product in Costa Rica and Nicaragua is made by the company Cruz Canela and Trust GB S.A., which was officially founded in 2010.
Cohiba is the flag brand of Internacional Cubana de Tabacos S.A (ICT), as well as the most prestigious one in the world of Premium cigars, reporting an annual growth of more than 4 percent.
According to experts, the popularity of Cuban cigars is linked to the presence of U.S. tourism in the region, as U.S. cigar aficionados are already allowed to acquire and import that product into their country.
Another factor is the high quality of packing and the format of that kind of cigars, in addition to the high quality and exclusiveness of the raw material used to roll the cigars.
