Ashton is among the most revered premium cigar brands in the world. Ashton cigars are handmade in the legendary Tabacalera A. Fuente factory in the Dominican Republic from only the finest aged tobaccos. Ashton has been a perennial “Top 3” brand in the U.S. for more than thirty years and is sold in over 60 countries.
Brand founder Robert Levin created Ashton in the early 1980s. A highly respected veteran of the cigar industry, Levin grew up in the 1950s and ‘60s working in his father’s historic cigar shop, Holt’s Cigar Company, in Philadelphia. He took the business over in the 1970s, successfully expanding its retail and mail order presence. Following years of steady growth, Levin applied his ambition to the creation of his own cigar brand.
