Ashton Cigars: A Lasting Friendship
Few of us are fortunate to say we have had a friendship spanning decades, but the cigar industry has fostered several for which we are truly grateful.
David Berkebile and Robbie Levin of Holt’s Cigar Company in Philadelphia came up together in the industry as retailers, often sharing their insights with each other as to what products were working and which were not. In 1985, Robbie launched Ashton Cigars, and David was proud to have Georgetown Tobacco carry Ashton as Account #1.
Made by Arturo Fuente, Ashton cigars are some of the finest in the world using only premium, aged tobaccos. Over the years, they have expanded their selection to include a depth and range in blends to satisfy every palate.
In last week’s Brief, we shared that the Ashton Classic Churchill is our number one selling cigar by the box. Using beautiful Connecticut shade wrappers grown in Connecticut, the Classic and the Cabinet series are a perfect fit for those who appreciate a smooth, mild smoke.
If you’re looking for something more bold, try the Ashton Maduro or a Virgin Sun Grown (VSG). Ashton also makes an incredible cigar with Nicaraguan tobacco, the Symmetry. If it’s a special moment, the Ashton Estate Sun Grown (ESG) uses a truly special Dominican wrapper that no one has perfected like the Fuentes.
Whatever your preference, we hope you’ll be able to share these cigars with great friends old and new… creating lasting memories like those shared by David and Robbie.
