Founded in 1997 Tomtom Cigars Whisky & Coffee is one of London’s leading merchants for Cuban Havanas and New World Cigars. We also sell Coffee and Whisky. Our shop is at 63 Elizabeth Street, London, SW1. Elizabeth Street runs North-South between Eaton Square and Ebury Street. In addition to our Cigar Shop, this part of Belgravia has a very attractive selection of independent specialist shops and restaurants. Our aim is to provide the best that comes out of Cuba and can be smoked. Cigar smokers are an eclectic mix, and no more so than the happy souls you will find puffing their favourite smokes in our Belgravia shop. Tomtom’s proprietor, Tom Assheton, provides an atmosphere that is relaxed, informed and open to anyone who wants to indulge a taste for real tobacco. We also stock all those useful accessories to look after your Cuban smokes including humidors, cigar cutters and Dupont lighters. They also make great gifts and when you want to restore the scent of summer (or winter) to your home we have a comprehensive range of Diptyque candles especially selected for the cigar smoker….
Tomtom has the highest classification from Habanos, the Cuban Cigar Authority, as a Specialist in Havanas (certified Gold). We have all the usual Havana Cigars and a wide selection of the less available brands. At any one time we have Limited Edition Havanas in stock as well as some aged smokes. We believe the magic of a fine, handmade Cuban Cigar can gloriously enhance your mood. You can try a smoke from our selection of single loose cigars. This ‘research’ will help you make an informed decision about box purchases. We are one of the few places in the country where you can still smoke in doors. We are recognised by City of Westminster council as a Havana Specialist. As such our customers are allowed to taste our cigars on the premises at 63 Elizabeth Street. If you like the great outdoors why not take your cigar across the street to Tomtom Coffee House and enjoy it with a delicious beverage.
Advice. We are happy to give guidance whether you are a new convert, a well-established aficionado or are searching for that special gift. There are so many varieties available that an appropriate smoke can be found for any person or time of the day. Perhaps a light Hoyo for the morning, a mild Montecristo for after lunch and then a full bodied Cohiba to take to bed. Etiquette is not something we fuss about – but if you want, we have plenty of advice.
Coffee and Whisky. A more recent addition to our shop stock is our full range of Tomtom Arabica Coffee Beans: which we can grind for you if you want. There is our espresso and filter blend, used with great success in the Coffee House and Mess Hall, and a variety of single farm and estate Arabica beans from all parts of the coffee growing world.
In 2011 we introduced a selection of variously aged Single Cask Malt Whiskies from different Scottish distilleries … bottle at full cask strength. So you have the pleasure of tasting them undiluted or if you prefer, add a drop of water. They are a superb match for your Havana evenings!
Finally we have a fabulous selection of accessories from Elie Bleu humidors, ST Dupont lighters, Davidoff, Dunhill, Tomtom, St Hilaire, David Linley humidors and others. Please have a look in the online store ‘Accessories’ section.
Awards. Tomtom has received several prestigious awards including being voted ‘Cigar Retailer of the Year’ at the Millennium Cigars awards held in London. Tom Assheton, the proprietor, has also received to coveted ‘Silver Chaveta’ trophy given annually by Havana importers, Hunters and Frankau, to a UK specialist in Havanas for outstanding contributions to the cigar trade. He was also nominated for Habanos Man of the Year (retail) at the annual Cuban awards ceremony held in Havana. Most recently, in November 2013 Tom was nominated as Cigar Retailer of the Year at the Spectator Cigar awards. We feel the greatest reward has been the support of our established customers, shown to us by them returning time after time. Please dive in and deliver yourself to the unequivocal pleasures of a Havana.
