RTB Cigars, the Charlotte North Carolina-based cigar company founded by Ronald T. Brown, has announced it is moving its manufacturing facilities away from Tabacalera Kafie.

The company has not made a decision on where production will be heading to. It is in discussions with several factories and expects to have a decision this Fall. RTB’s Cuban seed maduro The Finale is currently available while inventory lasts.

“I would like to thank everyone at the factor, Dr. Kafie and his family. I am grateful for the lessons learned over the years. I am currently talking to other factories and will be moving on,” commented Ronald T. Brown in a press release.

“I am excited about the future of RTB Cigars as we take the next step on this journey. I have been working on new blends as well as perfecting the current so the lounges and cigar enthusiasts can enjoy the very best.”

RTB Cigars becomes the third brand in 13 months to depart Tabacalera Kafie. In June 2020, Amendola Family Cigar Company announced it was leaving the factory founded by Dr. Gaby Kafie.  In April 2021 Stogie Road Cigars, the company founded by Kerr Viajante, announced it was departing Tabacalera Kafie.
