Founded in 2013 by Ian Reith, based in Fresno, California; “Dapper Cigars was founded with the goal to make just one great cigar for him and his friends”. What started as a small personal project has since grown in to an internationally distributed artisanal cigar brand in 7 years.
It was his next door neighbour, Chris Alvarez, who came up with the name of the brand after seeing the early creations and said, “now that’s a dapper cigar”. The brand name has an old vintage ring to it and that is reflected in the decoration of the boxes too.
Presently Dapper Cigars are made in Nicaragua, and a lot of the tobacco used is from the Oliva Tobacco company
