Brand Carlton

The American version of Carlton cigarettes was originally made by the American Tobacco Company. Launched in 1964, they were the first American brand to print "tar" and nicotine test results right on the package. In 1994, American Tobacco was bought by Brown & Williamson, who retooled the packaging in 1999, emphasizing its ultra, ultra low tar positioning. Brown & Williamson, in turn, were bought by R. J. Reynolds Tobacco in 2004, who continue to manufacture it today. It is the leading 1mg cigarette.
