Contrary to popular belief, James Bond has nothing to do with Bond cigarettes. Bond Street is the street where Philip Morris opened his first tobacco shop in 1847.
The combination of high quality and affordable prices makes Bond cigarettes one of the most popular brands in our country. The brand line includes several varieties of cigarettes of different strength and weight. For example, the premium series Bond Street Special Blue contains 0.5 mg of nicotine and 6 mg of tar. The brand also offers light and super light cigarettes.
Bond Street cigarettes are available in three flavors – Rich, Mild and the lighter flavored version of Bond Street Special Fine.

The production of a normal cigarette like Bond cigarettes takes place in different processing stages. First, the raw tobacco is refined. Here the ribs of the tobacco leaves are removed. Because the fewer tobacco stems there are in cigarettes, the less harmful smoke is produced. Thicker, more solid components produce more harmful smoke,so it is also in the interests of the manufacturers to use as good quality tobacco as possible in the form of fewer ribs and branches.

After all, the smoker shouldn’t consume a “waste product”. The leftover tobacco is processed into a mixture like the American Blend Mixture. This mixture is one of the most widely used concoctions in the world. It consists of subtle Virginia, sweet Burley and spicy oriental tobacco. The aroma, the condensate and the nicotine content determine the individual tobacco blend of the manufacturer.

These mixtures are then transported to the production machines via pipelines. From a roll of paper, the cigarette paper, runs a strip up to 7,000 meters long that encloses the tobacco mixture. With the help of cutting machines, this long tobacco rod is cut into short pieces.
Now both ends of the strand are fitted with a filter and wrapped in brown paper. The cigarette filter known to us smokers has now been attached to the cigarette. The tobacco stick manufactured up to this point is then divided, mostly into the usual 85 mm length, which is referred to in the industry as the king size format.
