After roughly five years of operating through third party factories, it looks like Cavalier Genève Cigars has finally established a facility of their own. Based in Danlì, Honduras, the factory is operating under the name Fabrica Centroamericana de Tabaco S.A.
Previously, Cavalier Genève had relied on third party manufacturing facilities to produce their cigars. Perhaps the most notable was the San Judas Tadeo factory in Honduras where Maya Selva cigars were rolled. Despite the success of these cigars, it seems that it was time for the Cavalier Genève brand to stand on its own.
In the words of owner Sebastien Decoppet:
“It was time for Cavalier to take it to the next level. We have always had very demanding standards for production as well as packaging, and the next step to meet our goals was to bring full control of manufacturing operations in-house to improve versatility and ensure the destiny of Cavalier Genève Cigars is in our hands alone.”
Fabrica Centroamericana de Tabaco is currently home to 50 employees who handle everything from processing tobacco to packaging and warehousing. The factory has also produced its first cigar already—the Prospektor—and it’s poised to manufacture all future blends for Cavalier Genève as well. The future of this young company is certainly looking bright!
