Experienced Tobacconists & Suppliers of Cigars Online

We have been trading in fine tobacco and smokers' accessories from 19 St James's Street for over 235 years and our customers have included discriminating smokers from all walks of life – from commoners to kings. Among them have been Sir Winston Churchill, Oscar Wilde, British and Foreign Royalty, the officer's mess of famous British regiments, and the leading lights of the stage, film, sport, tv, radio, music and literature.

Our world famous tobacco business started with Robert Lewis, who began trading fine tobacco in St James's Street in 1787. James J Fox was formed in Dublin in 1881 and opened its first tobacco shop in London in 1947. Fox acquired the business of Robert Lewis on 14 September 1992, uniting two of the most respected names in the cigar world. Both companies now trade as JJ Fox (St James's) Ltd and run the cigar departments of Harrods and Selfridges, in addition to selling large and small cigars online. Buy Cuban cigars online from world famous top cigar brands such as Cohiba and Hoyo De Monterrey, and choose to complement them with a pairing of premium accessories, such as cigar humidors, cigar cases and S. T. Dupont lighters and cutters. Browse our entire range and order online or in store today.
