What is Copenhagen's Tobacco?
You may be wondering what Copenhagen tobacco is exactly, or maybe you’re curious about its tobacco process. Most commonly known for its original snuff and dipping tobacco, Copenhagen prides itself in producing the perfect tobacco products. That’s why it can take up to four years to make a single can of product. From sowing the seeds to aging the leaves, Copenhagen’s experienced farmers must monitor each and every step throughout the process to ensure the brand delivers top-notch quality—and that’s far from easy.
Tobacco is a tough plant in general, and it’s even tougher to grow. Copenhagen uses “topping,” a time-tested ritual of ripping off the top flower of the tobacco plant to provide the leaves more stability, and to give the plant a richer shine. Using nothing but an axe, each plant is harvested by hand before it’s moved to the most important step in the process—flavor and aging. For the final steps, the leaves are cured under smoldering hardwood for about 30 days, then every single leaf sits in a hogshead barrel until it’s aged just right.
