Perfect Ash is now under new ownership! There's a new Diana in town!

We're still the same top-notch cigar and pipe shop...come visit and welcome the new Diana to our special blend of cigar shop hospitality.
Perfect Ash is located in River Bluffs Center in Lilydale, Minnesota, just minutes from downtown St. Paul and Minneapolis on a beautiful bluff overlooking the Mississippi River Valley. The shop is located just 1/4 mile east of I-35E on northbound Highway 13 (Sibley Memorial Highway). It is one of the oldest and finest tobacco stores in the state!
Founded in 1973 as The Smoke Shop at Diamond Jim's Mall, the store was purchased by Diana Petrich in 2004. After a complete renovation, it was renamed Perfect Ash. In October 2014 Diana Hernandez (pictured above) bought the business, so Perfect Ash continues to be the only cigar shop in Minnesota owned by a woman.
