Coming Events

Events During Covid-19 Pandemic

As we are still navigating the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we will slowly start hosting events at our location, starting in Summer/Fall 2021.

For information on more upcoming events, go to our Events page.

MEET THE OWNERDiana Hutton became the owner of Perfect Ash in October 2014. She is not your typical cigar connoisseur. Diana was born and raised in Mexico City. Also, she is a licensed Mexican attorney with 10+ years of legal experience, who came to Minnesota in 2013 to obtain a master’s degree in Business Law from the University of Minnesota. After that, Diana made her home in Minnesota and purchased Perfect Ash, to become the only Mexican female sole-proprietor of a tobacco shop in the state, and one of the very few in the country.

Perfect Ash has flourished under her direction. Diana revamped the company’s business policies and has expanded to include women and millennials. Diana strives to provide a friendly, comfortable, clean cigar-focused environment where frequent and new customers enjoy great company and relax. Diana and her knowledgable tobacconists are committed to helping you select the right cigar and provide a memorable experience every time you come in and “light up.”
