Per ADVentura’s Instagram earlier today (Sep, 26th) the Tabacalera William Ventura factory was overcome with fire. Luckily for everyone involved there have been no injuries to report from such a catastrophic event.
Per their Instagram post, they will be moving to the former TWV factory. The post also indicates that nothing can be salvaged from the debris and rubble. The post continues on to express that even with a major setback like this, they’re committed to working around the clock to get operations back up to 100% and come back stronger than before. They’re also thankful that they have product circulating around the globe as well.
As of yet, there is no information as to what started the blaze over night, but as more information comes available we will try to update as much as we can.
While loss comes at a great cost, they only asked for one favor in return from the cigar community as a whole:
We ask but one favor of the cigar community, please be patient with us. Please be patient with all of the retailers who carry the products we produce. We need your support now more than ever.ADVentura Cigars (Instagram)
From Henderson Ventura:
“I’m a factory owner. I’m a blender. I am a father, and I am a son and have many responsibilities to my family, however, right now my focus is our clients and the consumers. Much love and respect to everyone, and THANK YOU for your patience with us during this difficult time.”
“There’s only one thing to do, and that is to jump right in and rebuild.”Henderson Ventura, Co-Owner ADVentura Cigars.
From the desk:
We are keeping the whole ADVentura operation and families involved in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Tragedy like this doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it makes waves through the community. It is our hope and goal to help spread positivity through this time for ADVentura and their partners in order to help them rebuild and come back better than before! It is my hope that other brands will come along side and offer aid as we would also hope aid would be given if it were their tragedy. If you see some ADVentura product about, pick it up if you can. Everything helps!
