In 1939 the brand was introduced in the United States by Philip Morris USA who leased the marketing rights for the U.S. and in 1962, “Dunhill International” was introduced.
Dunhill cigarettes are usually priced above the average for cigarettes in the region where they are sold, due to the use of higher-quality tobacco.
Dunhill (minus the “International”) is a more expensive version produced by BAT, and are sold in European (including Russian), Asian-Pacific, and Canadian markets.
Dunhill cigarettes were favoured by gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson.
DUNHILL also markets a line of cigarillos in Malaysia. It is made of 100% tobacco inside out, whereby even the cigarette wrapper is made from tobacco using homogenized tobacco leaves.
