The Arnold André company - The Cigar Company was founded in 1817 and is now Germany's biggest producer of cigars.


We invite you to join us on a journey around the world! From our headquarters in Bünde in East Westphalia, Germany, to our national and international plants and distribution centres across the globe.


Bearing a name synonymous with the history of the German cigar also involves a lot of responsibility - the wonderful challenge of providing people with smoking pleasure.

Main brands

It is impossible to imagine the indulgent world of tobacco smoking without brands such as Handelsgold, Tropenschatz and Vasco da Gama. The successful combination of tradition and innovation is particularly reflected in the cigarillos from Clubmaster, Handelsgold Sweets and the trendy brand Independence.
