Middleton’s roots in tobacco date back to the founding of a small Philadelphia tobacco shop in 1856 to serve customers seeking cigars and pipe tobacco.
Cigar smoking is addictive and causes serious diseases. Cigar smoking is not a safe alternative to cigarette smoking.
We believe that responsibility is defined by the actions a company takes to address society’s expectations.
​​The U.S. is the world's largest cigar market with an estimated consumption of more than 12 billion units, or more than 40 percent of the world market.
​​Middleton manufactures and markets pipe tobacco and large machine-made cigars. Large cigars are a growing segment within the cigar category.
At Middleton, our marketing goal is to find ways to effectively, responsibly and profitably connect our brands with adult smokers.
