As many of you may have seen yesterday across various social media and cigar media sites, Ezra Zion Cigar Company has acquired Nomad Cigar Company.
“Nomad is an artisan boutique brand with an emphasis on quality and craftsmanship. Fred has been a close friend and colleague for years. We’re honored to be entrusted with such an institution.” stated Ezra Zion owner Chris Kelly.
Nomad Cigars will be distributed nationally by TX Distribution, which is owned by Ezra Zion and operates from their warehouses in Alvord, Texas.
“I feel confident that not only will Chris and Kyle take Nomad Cigar Company to the next level, but will also preserve what has brought it to this point.” noted Fred Rewey.
Nomad blends currently in the market will continue to be available from retail brick and mortar shops.
“So where are we taking Nomad? Well, we’ve got some very special blends just waiting to be released—really next level stuff! We will definitely be doing some very cool limited offerings under the Nomad brand.” noted Ezra Zion owner Kyle Hoover.
“We’d like an outlet for our more edgy and experimental stuff—both in terms of cigar making and also art concepts. There are some ideas that we feel might not exactly fit as an Ezra Zion release. Nomad gives us the chance to color outside the lines.” added Kelly.
The companies are currently transitioning business operations and logistics, etc. During this transition, Nomad retailers can continue to order from their current Nomad sales reps.
More branding updates and wholesale ordering instructions will be available soon.
“Our goal is to have the “New Nomad” unveiled to the public soon. I think people are going to be very stoked!” added Hoover.
CigarHawk.com would like to say “Congratulations” to all parties involved and we look forward to what’s next for everyone.
