    I have been trying to locate some Butera Kingfisher for quite a while. I have it on the "notify me" alert of most of the online shops. I don't know if it's no longer produced or just not available in the USA.
    After reading several reviews I became fascinated with it and "had to have it" :D but cannot find it.
    Does anyone know what is going on with the Kingfisher?

    It is one of those impossible to find blends. I picked up a few tins of Pelican blend a few months ago so it seems as if Butera is still producing but can't be sure what is still coming from them.

    Butera is an importer/distributor of a line of tobacco. They don't blend it themselves. They have blends made by Germain, Stokkebye and McClelland. A couple years ago Butera was bought by Arrango. You may have noticed on packages of Esoterica products that they are imported and distributed by Butera. I think Arrango bought Butera for the Esoterica line and just hasn't been too worried about getting Kingfisher out there.

    I have emailed Arrango mutiple times and they always say Kingfisher is coming back. But they have been saying that for a couple of years. Kingfisher is made by Germain so that may be part of the problem as well. They seem to be maxed out in production.
