Sam Leccia, El Presidente of Leccia Tobacco and purveyor of such famed brands as the Leccia Luchador, Leccia Black, and Leccia White, has announced today that after a year with General Tobacco that he is leaving the company. It was just a year ago that Sam agreed to sell to General Cigar Co. In his own words on his Facebook site Sam stated:
Some Big News today.
General Cigar Co will no longer be the distributor for Leccia Tobacco. After a year, it just wasn’t a good fit. I appreciate my time with the folks at General Cigar, but this is truly best for the Leccia Tobacco brand.
Things really shouldn’t change all that much for Leccia Tobacco. The cigar brands have always been made at the same factories since day 1, and that will continue.
I have always maintained 100% ownership of the Leccia Tobacco brands and trademarks so the only real changes is how the cigars will be delivered to the retailer.
Once again, thanks to The General Cigar team for their efforts in selling the Leccia Tobacco brands in 2015, I wish them all continued success.
I have big plans for 2016 with some incredible new projects in store. I am looking forward to bringing them to a humidor near you!
Thank You All For Your Continued Support!
