The tobacco world plays host to a number of big names. However, few are quite so famous as Golden Virginia, a form of rolling tobacco that remains popular all through Europe.
The tobacco is manufactured in Nottingham, and is sold in pouches of 8g, 12.5g and 50g. They come complete with a zip lock seal designed to help keep the tobacco fresh.
Golden Virginia is believed to be the number one hand rolling tobacco in the UK, and is sold in more than 35 markets, with some of the key ones being Belgium, Spain and Luxembourg (in addition to the UK).
In recent years, Golden Virginia released Yellow, a slightly higher level product manufactured exclusively using smooth Virginia tobacco, and designed to compete with other, cheaper factory mate cigarette brands. Volume sales for Golden Virginia products increased by around 12% during 2008.
Those looking to save money on Golden Virginia products often to choose to buy them online, where they can be found in larger amounts and at better prices. The tobacco can be purchased on the web in all the same pouches that it can in stores, as well as in full tins. Typically, Golden Virginia tobacco is used as part of self-rolled cigarettes, and can therefore offer a more economical way to smoke than conventional brands.
Tobacco products should not usually be purchased opened, as will be hard to ascertain whether the product contained within is actually legitimate quality tobacco.
