About Us

Our Motto:

"Always give your customers the best service, the best products at a fair and honest price and always thank them for their business, as they are the heart and sole of the future of our industry and retail store."

Stag Tobacconist, Santa Fe's oldest and largest Cigar Shop, has been serving the Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico community for over 36 years. It is our commitment to serving our customers with the highest level of customer service coupled with the most diversified product line available that has made us the oldest and most complete Professional Tobacconist location in the Santa Fe area. At our store, you will always find the friendliest and most knowledgeable staff available anywhere. 


Stag Tobacconist started in 1976 under the ownership of Jakki's father and mentor, Allan Rysanek. Allan retired in 2003 and wanted Jakki to continue managing the operation under the same "Customer Focused" approach that had made the store so successful in the past. 


Jakki Jordan has over 20 years experience in the tobacco industry. We call her the "Grand Mama" because she just seems to know most everything a customer needs. She always seems to have our customer’s best interest at heart and always has the greatest smile. She is the best in the industry and loved by all who meet her. She is certainly her dad's daughter!


Jakki's best friend and husband Gene joined the management staff in 2009. Gene, better known as "The Cigar Man," brought a world of knowledge and passion to the store in the cigar arena and retail management. Gene is always available to recommend the best cigar for each and every customer’s unique needs. He is definitely the "Go to Man" when you need a great cigar recommendation.


Today, Stag Tobacconist is a household name in the Santa Fe market area as the "Place to Go" if you want great service and the widest range of top products available". Allan Rysanek passed away in 2007, and although Jakki's mentor and dad is no longer with us, we are sure he would be very proud to know that when each and every day we open our doors, we are committed to the values he believed were the most important: "Always give your customers the best service, the best products at a fair and honest price and always thank them for their business, as they are the heart and sole of the future of our industry and retail store."
