About Swisher International
Meet the company behind the cigar that needs no introduction.
We may be best known for one of the world’s best-selling cigars — Swisher Sweets — but our portfolio includes a variety of cigars, cigarillos and smokeless tobacco products for discerning adult consumers.
Since 1861, Swisher International has manufactured quality tobacco products. Today, we ship more than 2 billion cigars per year to over 70 countries. Included in that number are our popular Swisher Sweets Original and Diamonds. These two superstars are the #1 and #2 best-selling large cigars in the U.S., according to MSAi Database: 26 Weeks ending 11/2/19. Together, they account for more volume than the next five competitive large cigar items combined.
But we know that keeping things fresh and remaining an industry leader after all these years requires constant innovation — whether it’s adding to our portfolio, introducing blends, or improving our operations through automation, acquisition and expansion.
For more than a century, we have manufactured a variety of in-demand cigar products. Our portfolio includes crowd favorite brands like Swisher Sweets, King Edward, Optimo Natural Leaf, BlackStone, Pom Pom and Santa Fe cigars, to name a few.
Through the acquisition of Drew Estate we are able to bring a wide range of premium cigars to the Swisher family. A selection that includes ACID, Tabak Especial, and La Vieja Habana — all brands built on the same foundation of tradition and quality that all Swisher products share.
And, we can’t forget our portfolio of smokeless tobacco, including brands Lancaster, Mail Pouch, Chattanooga Chew, and Starr chewing tobacco, in addition to Kayak and Creek moist snuffs. Offering options for wherever our customers go.
As trends and preferences evolve, we stay ahead of the curve by rolling out products to meet our consumers’ lifestyle needs. In 2017, Swisher acquired Hempire, the first 100% hemp rolling paper line that combines premium quality with stay-fresh packaging.
And through a joint venture, we’re proud to offer Rogue alternative nicotine products. Now adults can enjoy tobacco-free nicotine on their terms with our lineup of gum, lozenges, tablets and pouches.
Innovative and tried-and-true products are crucial to maintaining our legendary status in ever-changing times. However, we understand that it’s not ALL about the products. Through the years, advances in sales and service have helped make us true partners in profit to those doing business with us. We are proud that our efforts have been recognized by Convenience Store News with their Category Captain Award for six consecutive years.
At the end of the day, we attribute our success to never losing sight of the commitment that gave us our start. At Swisher, we’re proud of our people and the contributions we’ve made to our industry and our community. Jacksonville, Florida, is our home, and we also have manufacturing facilities in Wheeling, West Virginia, and Santiago, Dominican Republic.
