As a key export for countries around the world, tobacco is an annual crop, sowed at the end of winter and harvested in the early summer. To ensure product quality, we created an integrated production system that provides independent farmers with extensive technical and monitoring support.
Du MAURIER products only contain Virginia tobacco. Harvested in steps by hand, only the most mature leaves are picked at once to ensure optimal quality. Farmers typically pick at the first sunlight.
The harvested leaves are cured in heated barns from 5 to 7 days. This process ensures that the optimal taste of virginia tobacco is met by eliminating unwanted components and fixating sugars in the leaves.
Cured tobacco purchased from independent farmers receives an internal grade related to quality and composition. Selected for its various styles and qualities, it is cut and mixed to create the blends you enjoy.
