Place of Origin

Maker R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company

Maker Details In 1913, Reynolds Tobacco introduced Camel cigarettes, containing a blend of several different types of tobacco, a blend that would come to be called the American blend. Supported by a unique introductory "teaser" advertising campaign, Camel became the first nationally popular cigarette in the United States. On March 24, 1927, in Winston-Salem, an announcement was made that Brown & Williamson was being acquired by London-based British American Tobacco p.l.c. Prince Albert is one of the more popular independent brands of pipe tobacco in the United States; in the 1930s, it was the "second largest money-maker" for Reynolds. More recently, it has also become available in the form of pipe-tobacco cigars. The tobacco was personally named by R. J. Reynolds after Edward VII, who was known as Prince Albert before being crowned King.The portrait of Prince Albert was based on one acquired by Reynolds at a tea party with Mark Twain.
