Steeped in legend and history, the Gurkha Cigar created more than a century ago, was reborn in 1992. The company has continuously rolled out meticulously handcrafted cigars, epitomizing all that is luxury.

In 1989, Hansotia decided to resurrect a cigar brand rich in tradition and steeped in legend and history. Gurkha Cigars were created more than a century ago and were known for their meticulously and artisanally handcrafted cigars but when Hansotia revived the brand, there was no way he could have known that the cigar industry was about to experience a boom and he would have the perfect product to attract the new cigar consumer. 

Today, Gurkha makes cigars for all price points and all palettes but when it began Gurkha cigars were unlike other cigars in the market and that they came in highly ornate packaging and with a steep price tag. Hansotia felt that there was a market for more luxurious and exclusive cigars for those with tastes for only the finer and more elusive products. In focusing on this segment Hansotia created the ultra premium cigar category.

Royal Challenge 

The wrapper was grown in Ecuador and is a very light, noble Connecticut shade. The binder, in turn, comes from Honduras. The tobacco for the filler grew in the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. Wrapped in cellophane, the Gurkha “Royal Challenge” Grand Robusto rests well protected in the shiny black aluminium tube.

The Gurkha Royal Challenge Grand Robusto convinces with aromas of wood, nuts and toast, accompanied by a creamy smoking pleasure. The light cigars offer a mild, yet very complex and varied smoke.
