Frequently Asked Questions

What type of Cigars do you sell?
We only import Habanos Cigars and Cigarillos. We have over 200 SKUs with brands like: Cohiba, Trinidad, Montecristo, H. Upmann, Hoyo de Monterrey, Partagás, Romeo y Julieta, Bolívar, Quintero, Fonseca, José L Piedra, amongst other.
How long does it take for my order to be delivered?
While we try to dispatch your order as soon as it is confirmed, it could take up to 7-10 days due to the strict customs regulations. Depending on where in India you are located, it can take up to 4 working days for delivery but sometimes as little as 2-3 days! All our parcels are traceable online and a tracking number will be emailed to you as soon as your goods are on their way.
Is it necessary to have an account to shop on Cingari?
While it is not necessary to have an account at Cingari and you can make a purchase as a guest user, we recommend you create an account in order to have access to a personalised shopping experience, including recommendations and a quicker check-out.
How does Cingari procure and store the cigars?
We procure the cigars directly from Habanos S.A., the Havana-based company jointly owned by the Cuban government and the British Imperial Tobacco Group, which markets all 27 Habanos brands worldwide.
Once procured, they are transported from Cuba to India in special conditions that maintain the relative humidity and temperature requirements that these delicate products require.
As soon as the cigars reach India, they are transferred to a special-bonded warehouse, in which the goods are stored before taxes are paid. As the duties for the products are cleared with customs, the Habanos are transferred to our duty paid warehouse for individual consumption. These warehouses are under strict relative humidity and temperature controlled conditions to ensure that all the cigars we supply in the Indian market are preserved and matured in the right environment.
How can I be assured of the quality of the Cigars when they arrive?
As the exclusive distributors of Habanos cigars in India, we take pride in the quality of what we deliver. Once the shipment is delivered from Cuba to our Warehouse, we check each and every Cigar and make sure that they have not been spoiled during transportation. The cigars are then stored in our relative humidity and temperature controlled warehouses that mimic the conditions in Cuba and ensure that all the products preserve their flavours.
Once you place your order, a cigar specialist inspects thoroughly the Cigars before they are dispatched.
What forms of payment do you accept?
You can choose to pay for an order using any of the below methods:
  • Net Banking
  • Gift Voucher
  • Paytm
Can I pay by credit/debit card
At present, we are not accepting credit cards online but we will update you as soon as the situation changes. However, if you have an American Express Card, please do call +91 9818124427 or email us at habanoscigars@cingari.in to make an offline transaction.
What are your delivery charges?
The delivery charges vary, based on the location and size of package with a minimum charge of Rs 300
I have purchased some cigars from you, but the Habanos seals are broken on the boxes. Is this normal?
Yes, this is absolutely normal and we would never ship sealed boxes. Because of our absolute commitment to quality, we inspect all the boxes that arrive to our warehouse. The reason for this is twofold: to ensure that the cigars we ship are in line with our strict quality standards in terms of wrapper quality and storing condition, and to assure that the cigars we deliver to you do not have mould or weevil infestation. In order to do so, we have to break the seas of the boxes.
What if I’m not satisfied with my order?
If you are not happy with your order please contact us on habanoscigars@cingari.in explaining the reason for your dissatisfaction. We will do everything in our power to either replace or return your products until you are fully satisfied with our service. To know more about Cingari’s Returns and Cancellations policy, click here.
