About Us

Canteros New Zealand - Your Premium Source

Established in 2015 as the commercial vision of my 20+ years in the cigar industry; I've taken my passion to a dedicated business with three staff; located in Christchurch, New Zealand.

We stock over 10,000 Premium cigars on-hand in our humidified cabinets, our team ensures you will always get the finest, freshest and most affordable & enjoyable cigars in New Zealand.

We believe in the future of Premium cigars in New Zealand, often referred to as the New World of Cigars (cigars from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Honduras and Costa Rica).

For the past decade Premium cigars have dominated the cigar world - landing the coveted top picks year after year in both Europe and the United States.

Backing up our dedication to bringing the finest cigars in the world to our great New Zealand customers, we ship via CourierPost every day of the week, across New Zealand.

We are also the distributors of Boveda, Cigar Oasis, Commonwealth Cedar Spills and Xikar for New Zealand; ensuring you can keep your Premium cigars fresh, cut and lit correctly.

No other retailer in New Zealand offers the outstanding line-up as we do; because we work closely with the finest family's and factories of the entire cigar world.

Our humidor range includes the worlds number one electronic humidor from Liebherr, a personal favourite of Jose Blanco, Master Blender himself as well as entry-level humidors and the finest humidors from Craftsman Bench and Diamond Crown.

Established in 2016, New Zealand's only Cigar of the Month Club, - this is our premier subscription option; recently we have added our small way of addressing mental health, by providing "a cigar for every Saturday" where we encourage aficionados to get together with their friends and family and to talk over the mutual enjoyment of a cigar.

Lastly, if you are looking for pipe-tobacco, Canteros New Zealand is also the largest stockist of pipe tobaccos in New Zealand, from the likes of Ashton, Peterson, Lane 1Q, Balkan, Mac Baren and Erinmore (to name but a few).
