Ashton Cigars evolved from a humble cigar shop in Philadelphia to a “Top 5” global leader of the premium cigar market. In 1985, Robert Levin founded Ashton after spending years helping his father operate and manage Holt’s Cigar Company. Levin’s career was changed forever when he was given the opportunity to partner with the legendary Arturo Fuente Cigars. At Tabacalera A. Fuente y Cia, Robert Levin mastered the art of crafting the finest cigars from the world-renowned Fuente family. Arturo Fuente’s Dominican fields and factories fostered Levin’s passion for crafting only the finest quality stogies, while simultaneously enriching his knowledge of complex aging and blending processes. Ashton Cigars expanded further when Levin and Jose “Pepin” Garcia joined forces to create the award-winning San Cristobal and La Aroma de Cuba lines. His unwavering dedication to maintaining the highest standards in all aspects of Ashton Cigars has resulted in unparalleled critical acclaim, worldwide accolades and a massive following of cigar enthusiasts.
