Today Debonaire House and Drew Estate announced that effectively January 1st, 2019, Debonaire House will take over sales, distribution, and marketing of its products from Drew Estate.
Debonaire House will begin leveraging the United Parcel Service’s (UP) Cigars Direct program. This will allow them to ship to local retailers directly from its own distribution system in the U.S. For the remainder of 2018, Drew Estate and Debonaire will continue their partnership. Debonaire will once again be a part of the Drew Estate booth at the 2018 IPCPR.
