Michael Giannini Out at Ventura Cigar Company As it Restructures


In comments made to Cigar Aficionado recently, Phillips & King general manager and executive Vice President Sergio Montolfo cited recent developments at the FDA regarding premium handmade cigars and production limitations brought on by COVID-19 pandemic as being contributing factors to the changes impacting Ventura Cigar Company. In the same report, Montolfo also stated that Ventura Cigar “is not going away anytime soon” and that Phillips & King remains committed to cigar retailers across the U.S.

As Ventura Cigar Company continues its re-integration with Phillips & King, there will reportedly be a consolidation of its premium cigar portfolio, though details have not yet been provided. Ventura Cigar Company is currently focusing its efforts on PSyKo Seven and several lines within its Archetype brand, including the recently released Archetype Master and Archetype Pupil cigars.
