About the Cigar Shop

Cigars in Christchurch

Owner Sheldon discovered cigars when he lived in the United States several years ago. He tried many types and developed some favorites, but when he moved back to New Zealand, he was unable to find a cigar retailer. What started as a way to cover the cost of his hobby turned into a cool little business.

Years later, The Cigar Shop is still 100% New Zealand-owned and operated. We’ve provided high-quality products and excellent customer service to New Zealand since 2010.

Based in Papamoa, Tauranga, we are the first and longest-serving online cigar store in New Zealand with secure credit card or bank transfer payment options.
When you checkout with your card, we securely store a token, and only charge your card when we ship your order and have calculated the best shipping price for your order - no guessing, only the best pricing.

We ship your orders everyday by CourierPost nationwide and email tracking details from [email protected] when your order is dispatched.
Log in to your account to track orders, repeat previous orders or add and check notes against previously orders sticks - get that great stick every time.


We have a huge range - and by our calculations, the biggest range of cigars in New Zealand. All of our cubans are 100% verified genuine hand made cuban cigars from genuine factories.
We DO NOT and WILL NOT sell you FAKES/Replica's.

Our humidors are great humidors and come ready to go, when we receive them, we season them with humidor solutions, and age them so from day one - their ready to hold your precious cigars.
We also have a select range of Siglo humidors if you're looking for that something extra special.
