A Huge Range at Your Disposal:
Produced by the Imperial Tobacco Company, Gauloises cigarettes were first introduced in France in 1910. Traditional cigarettes from Gauloises included dark tobacco harvested from Turkey and Syria and were short and wide, generally unfiltered. It was this unique combination of tobacco that lent a distinct and strong aroma to Gauloises cigarettes. For over a century, a Gauloises cigarette has been known for its strong and unfiltered aroma. After almost four decades of being launched, the brand released a filtered one. In the mid 1980s, the company released a typical American-style filtered tobacco cigarette called Gauloises Blondes. The brand also sells low tar cigarettes in green, red and white/golden packets while the traditional unfiltered cigarettes are sold under the name Gauloises Caporal. While Gauloises first introduced it as a separate brand, it is now owned and operated by the Imperial Tobacco Company. In 2008, the company took over Altadis and began producing Gauloises cigarettes under their brand, becoming one of the biggest tobacco companies in the world.
