Sunlight, rainfall, and the patient hands of farmers nurture seeds shielded in volcanic soils. Time must pass. Growth occurs. A harvest emerges. It is a tradition set in motion generations ago by Fuente family cigar-makers. In every cultivation, their presence carries on.
Only the finest binder and filler leaves are drawn from tobaccos planted on pristine Fuente family fields in the Dominican landscape. A meticulous selection process influences every harvest of tobacco grown for Ashton cigars.
The brand’s wrapper varietals are cultivated from the fertile grounds of the Connecticut River Valley, the steep cloud-covered terrain of Ecuador, and prized crops that arise from the Fuente family’s iconic Chateau de la Fuente estate in the Dominican Republic. The passion, work, and waiting of tobacco growers is tasted in the terrior of every finished cigar.
