Cigar News: Luiciano Cigars Clarifies Ownership

Luciano Cigars has put out the following clarification regarding ownership of factory and blending.

After once again seeing misleading statements published in the cigar media, the company wanted to take the time to make a clarifying statement in regards to their brand (Luciano Cigars) and their factory Dhatuey Tabacos S.A. (formerly DBA Tabacalera Pichardo, now LUCIANO CIGARS FACTORY). 

While Dhatuey/Tabacalera formerly bore the name Pichardo in the past, the majority of its ownership actually belongs to Luciano Meirelles and Tiago Splitter. This includes the entity as a whole – from its employers, premium tobacco, our blender Luciano Meirelles, and our reputation as cigar makers. In fact, all products from Dhatuey made to Crowned Heads were blended by Luciano Meirelles, with no exception.

The Brand “Pichardo” also belongs entirely to Ace Prime LLC, which is owned solely by Luciano Meirelles and Tiago Splitter. 

Luciano Cigars will soon be holding an exclusive Press Conference in order to address all ongoing questions and issues as our company moves forward with the rebranding and the launch of an independent US distribution. We will maintain you informed as to the date and time.
