Germain & Son commenced manufacturing tobacco back in 1820. A family business located in Jersey boasting perfect climatic controlled conditions.
The experience gained by succeeding generations in the art of blending has produced the range of fine individual tobaccos available today. Their new factory is situated on the site of the original premises facing the harbour of St Helier from whence, 180 years ago, Jersey-built schooners sailed to many parts of the world, some returning with cargoes of leaf tobacco for Germain's factory.
The name of this tobacco originates from the early days when all tobaccos were pressed into cakes before cutting. Four types of Virginian tobaccos are blended with Cavendish and a specially prepared Black Tobacco.
