What it is to live in a competition-free world, thanks again to Government.
Curious though, with the US$ falling against the , their raw material costs must be falling too. Perhaps it is to help pay for their proposed purchase of Altadis, the Spanish & French cigarette manufacturer!

The Government have now admitted that 54% of all cigarettes sold on streets, in pubs and markets in the UK are counterfeit and contain "much higher quantities of known carcinogens" than normal ones, (cadmium, lead and arsenic). They also contain 160% more tar, 80% more nicotine and 133% more carbon monoxide. (Daily Telegraph report 16 12 04).

Smuggled tobacco products still accounts for over 25% of UK consumption! H.M.Customs & Excise have increased surveillance around the country to control smuggling with some success.

The increase in under-age smoking still gives cause for concern and arises due to the ready availiability of smuggled product.

Still the most economical way to enjoy a cigarette is by hand-rolling with a narrow-cut (shag) tobacco. We specialise in such tobaccos and also offer a range of accessories for the hand-roller. In addition we support the pipe smoker with an excellent selection of pipe tobaccos, pipes and lighters.
