We manufacture cigarettes in 23 countries around the world with tobacco leaf sourced from over 50 countries.

For cigarettes we work with three main tobacco varieties virginia, burley and oriental, each grown and cured by thousands of farmers worldwide.

The consistent quality and particular taste of an individual brand of cigarette may still involve many different sources and grades of tobacco leaf. So to ensure we achieve exactly the right blend every time, we sample tobacco leaf continuously from many different suppliers and countries.

We often describe the supply side of our industry as an ever changing global street market where manufacturers of tobacco products must shop carefully if they are to meet expectations of consistent quality and taste.

Our cigarette portfolio contains eight Global Flagship Brands and more than 60 other cigarette brands that we market regionally.


Cigars are made with whole tobacco leaf used as the outer wrapper and bunches of leaves known as fillers creating the contents. Additional leaves known as binders are used to hold the tobacco fillers together. We sell both hand and machine made cigars to over 20 markets worldwide.

To produce the desired tobacco flavors, fillers of different strengths are blended together. Before trimming and packing, cigars are dried in a conditioning room to ensure they have the correct level of moisture.

Our major cigar brand is Hamlet, which is manufactured at our factory in Lisnafillan, Northern Ireland.

Rolling tobacco

Fine cut tobacco packed in loose form in pouches is known as rolling tobacco. It s used to produce roll your own cigarettes using rolling papers. In some brand pouches the rolling papers are included.

Filters can be brought separately and placed with tobacco in the rolling paper.

Once considered to be a lower grade of tobacco, rolling tobacco today is made to the same high standards as cigarettes with equal consideration being given to creating quality blends of individual aroma and flavor.

Yet no matter how many forms the belief takes, it is nothing but wishful thinking. Lucky Strike gained its name as a reference to the Gold Rush days, when prospectors who happened upon great riches were said to have made a “lucky strike.” By selecting this particular name for the product, its manufacturers implied consumers who chose this brand of tobacco were themselves making a “lucky strike” in the form of happening upon a fine product. (Throughout its history, Lucky Strike drew upon similar marketing sleight of hand to build belief that it was superior to its competitors. Early advertising campaigns proudly trumpeted “It’s toasted!” as if what was being proclaimed was a noteworthy aspect peculiar to that one brand when in fact all tobacco used in cigarettes was “toasted.” And in the 1940s when it altered the look of its cigarette pack to make the brand more popular with women, a growing segment of the smoking population, it positioned the redesign as part of the war effort Consumers were told “Lucky Strike Green Has Gone to War!” by doing away with its former green packaging and so preserving those verdant dyes for use by U.S. Army an explanation that was pure humbug.)

In 1903 Lucky Strike was sold to W.T. Blackwell & Company of Durham, North Carolina, and in 1905 it was acquired by the American Tobacco Company. American began manufacturing the Lucky Strike cigarette in 1917 to challenge Camel for its share of that market.

Although Lucky Strike lacks any connection to self medicating with marijuana, at one time it was positioned as a diet aid. The brand was the first to connect smoking to weight loss with an advertising campaign targeted to women that advocated lighting up as the way to combat sugar cravings. In the 1920s and 1930s, ads for the cigarette told women “When tempted, reach for a Lucky instead you will thus avoid overindulgence in things that cause excess weight.” That campaign worked “Reach for a Lucky instead of a sweet” was associated with a 200 percent increase in market share.
