Dunhill is a brand of pipes and pipe tobacco based in the UK.

Alfred Dunhill opened his pipe shop in 1907 and soon it established itself as producing some of the highest quality pipes available. To achieve this, Dunhill uses the finest briar and employees the best craftsmen available.

Every pipe produced by Dunhill has a white dot, originally placed for craftsmen to be able to tell the correct placement of the stem. Now, the dot allows thousands of pipe smokers to advertise their choice of pipe brand

Alfred Dunhill also created a name for himself in the field of tobacco blending. Many of his blends are still popular today. Some examples of his blends are: Light Flake, Durbar, London Mixture, Mixture 965 and Nightcap.

Today, Dunhill tobacco is produced in Germany by Orlik Ltd and is currently distributed by British American Tobacco.

Dunhill is also a brand of luxury cigarette, manufactured in Singapore and distributed by British American Tobacco. Priced along the lines of other smokes such as Nat Sherman and Davidoff, Dunhills have existed in the expensive cigarette market for years.

While many variations of Dunhill cigarettes are available in the UK and Australia, only the International and International Light varieties are imported to the United States.

Dunhill Internationals are packaged in a slim, red box with two sealed packets of 10 cigarettes each in an attempt to fight off staleness. The cigarettes themselves have the Dunhill logo and a silver stripe printed on the filter, and are incredibly smooth and satisfying.


On an interesting side note, Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, pioneer in the field of Gonzo Journalism, was known to prefer Dunhills.
