Handcrafted in Santiago, Dominican Republic, by the renowned Tabacalera A. Fuente. Owner Robert Levin has mastered the art of creating a cigar perfect for any time of day and pairable with coffee as well as aged rum. Originally made in Tobaccos Dominicanos (the same factory that made Davidoff) for the first two or three years of its founding. Shortly thereafter, Levin partnered with the Fuente family to produce the brand due to their amazing talent and passion for premium tobaccos.

Knowing Fuente his whole life. When they started in the Dominican Republic in 1980, they were building up their factory. Levin and Carlos Fuente Jr. reinvented Ashton in 1989. They worked on the blend and got it to where they both thought it was a great stogie. The brand started to really take off once the Fuente started making it. Ashton Cigars’ portfolio includes the original Ashton Classic, Ashton Aged Maduro, Ashton VSG, the ever-popular samplers, and more. Offering a diverse range of strengths and blends.

Currently, Ashton is a father-and-son operation headed by Robert Levin and his son, Sathya Levin.
