Producer of some of the top lines of premium cigars, CAO has been in the business since 1964. Cano A. Ozgener’s love for tobacco and accessories started as a hobby as he would modify imperfect meerschaum pipes. This hobby quickly turned into a fully functioning, tobacco company. He went on to have multiple lines of premium cigars, pipe tobacco, pipes and other cigar accessories before selling the company to Scandinavian Tobacco Group. Although, the Ozgener family is still a large part of the company as Cano’s son is President of the organization.
CAO’s premium lines now include Brasilia, Colombia, Flathead, Flavors, and more. CAO pipe tobacco has also been ranked highly among premium pipe tobacco smokers.
