The best flue-cured and burley tobaccos in the world are grown in the United States. American growers in the Southeastern States use the most advanced agricultural equipment, technology and methods available.

Burley tobacco is grown primarily in central and western Kentucky and central and western Tennessee. Burley tobacco is light air-cured and relies on a delicate balance of humidity and temperature to cure properly.

When cigarettes became popular in the late 1800’s, the most prevalent blend was Virginia or English blend which used only flue-cured and a small amount of Oriental tobaccos grown in Greece and Turkey.  American tobacconists introduced burley to the blend to derive a smoother, mellower smoke. These components are the core of American blend cigarettes on the market today. 

Elegant tobacco is an American blend which selects and uses only the finest of domestic and oriental tobaccos available without regard to cost.
