Bennington Tobacconist is celebrating over 50 years of dedication to quality products and exceptional service.
William E. Bennington founded Bennington Tobacconist in 1965. With careful consideration, the location was determined in Saint Armand’s Circle in Sarasota, Florida. Mr. Bennington had the foresight to institute custom hand mixed tobacco blends and hand rolled cigars. Being a family-operated tobacco shop; his three sons, Jack, Jim and Gary grew up in the business. They learned the meaning of service, quality and hard work.
Bennington Tobacco has hand blended high quality pipe tobaccos since William E. Bennington, the founder, began the company in the fall of 1965. At Bennington’s, they still prefer the original method of buying the basic tobacco component ingredients and creating unique blends from them.
For over 50 years, Bennington Tobacconist has remained in the same location and has remained true to honor their father’s philosophy of providing excellent service and quality products.
Come and enjoy a large and finest variety of tobacco products, including cigars, humidors, pipes, accessories, lighters and ashtrays, e-liquids and more.
“This is usually one of our first and one of our last stops when we visit Sarasota. Pipe tobacco to last for our vacation and then some to take home with us. We also have friends in the area that buy it to ship up north when our stock gets low. The store has an awesome fine tobacco smell, the staff is knowledge and friendly. The pipe selection is great and the tobacco keeps bring us back.” – Debbie S.
“I’m only an occasional (handful a year) cigar smoker, but this place, while not huge, is impressive. Feels very high-end, and like any tobacco shop, smells incredible. Every inch has been used wisely — they have a lot to choose from. And the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful.” – Patrick D.
“Great cigar shop. I was able to set up my condo with everything I needed from cigars, humidor, lighter, ashtray etc. Gary is great and the rest of the staff is very knowledgeable. It’s the first place I stop when I come down to my place on Longboat. Also, a great place to go while my wife is shopping in St. Armand’s. I’ll stop in, grab a stick and have it inside or right outside on the bench. Definitely recommend!” – Ryan K.
