Kristoff Cigars was created in 2005 by Glen Case. A man that always had a passion for cigars that worked in the corporate world for about 19 years with the last 9 at a bank in Chicago but, then decided one day to quit his bank job and pursue his passion, cigars. He first started as a independent sales rep for other cigar manufactures and about 6 months after he begin that he decided it was time for his own company. His original name was Exclusive Cigars and after awhile started realizing the cigars that were doing good were the ones he named Kristoff. So he decided to re brand and name the company Kristoff and from their the company you see today was born. The name Kristoff itself comes from his son’s name Kristoffer. When coming up in the beginning the company itself had a few growing pains such as draw issues but these were quickly over come with new technology in the industry for testing the draw on a cigar. Glen likes to live by the business philosophy of quality, consistency, and availability for his company which you can see it has really paid off for him. Kristoff is now currently the fastest growing boutique manufacturers in the cigar industry. They use double and triple fermented tobacco from all over the world and are known for pleasing the light to medium bodied smoker out there. Lastly another fact about Kristoff is that Glen named their other cigar the Brittania Reserva after his daughter.
