The first Casa del Habano in the Canary Islands opened today in the tourist location of Costa Adeje, Santa Cruz, on the island of Tenerife. The shop, opened by Dominique London, is called Casa del Habano Tenerife, and has an extensive walk-in humidor and a full range of premium Havana cigars, with lockers and a sampling area plus a range of cigar accessories.
“The humidor is full,” said Frédéric Dechamps, chief executive officer of Dominique London, who was in the Canaries for the shop’s opening.
“Tenerife has a tradition for fine cigars and we are very proud to open the first La Casa del Habano on the island,” said Mitchell Orchant, Dominique London’s chief commercial officer. “Tenerife has long offered draws that attract tourists from all over the world. We will be delighted to meet their cigar needs as well as serve the local community.”
Dominique London was created in March with the merger of La Casa del Tabaco in Belgium and Orchant’s C.Gars Ltd of the United Kingdom. This is the company’s 20th shop. The organization also has shops throughout the United Kingdom, Belgium and Basel, Switzerland.
This also marks the expansion of the Casa del Habano franchise. In the past year, new Casas have opened in Switzerland, Thailand, Israel, Albania, Curaçao, Vietnam and Togo.
