Steeped in legend and history, the Gurkha Cigar, created more than a century ago, was reborn in 1992 due to the keen eye and fine taste of Kaizad Hansotia. In resurrecting the brand, Hansotia has created a cigar company that continuously rolls out meticulously handcrafted cigars, epitomizing all that is luxury.
Today, Gurkha makes cigars for all price points and all palettes but when it began Gurkha cigars were unlike other cigars in the market and that they came in highly ornate packaging and with a steep price tag. Hansotia felt that there was a market for more luxurious and exclusive cigars for those with tastes for only the finer and more elusive products. In focusing on this segment Hansotia created the ultra premium cigar category.
