Ace Prime Cigars has changed its name, and is now known as Luciano Cigars. The company has taken the first name of one of its cofounders, Luciano Meirelles. The name is also used on one of the company’s cigar lines, such as in Luciano the Dreamer. 

The name change coincides with a change in distribution. Luciano Cigars will take on its own cigar distribution starting November 1. Crowned Heads had been distributing the company’s cigars since 2020.
