The George B. Miller & Co. tobacco business became famous as one of the first makers of the fine cut variety of chewing tobacco. Mickle eventually inherited the business and renamed it A. H. Mickle & Sons. He expanded the firm and its product line, and became wealthy as a result. He later renamed the business A. H. Mickle & Sons.

A Democrat affiliated with the Tammany Hall organization, in 1845 he won election as Mayor of New York City, taking advantage of a four-way race to win with a plurality. After serving one two-year term Mickle declined to run for reelection and returned to his business interests.
