Although the company opened its doors in the late 1980’s, its namesake dates back to 1887 in Nepal, the apex of British domination. Gurkha was the term for the Nepalese fighters who carried the fierce looking Khukuri swords, which captivated the British. The soldiers were also fond of rolling cigars from local tobacco, and so as tribute they called their stogies, “Gurkhas.” The founder, Kaizad Hansotia stumbled into the cigar industry by purchasing hand-rolled cigars from a Portuguese street merchant in India. Hansotia resold them as Gurkha Cigars and the rest is history. Gurkha has a loyal following of cigar connoisseurs from around the globe.
