The tobacco concern "Donskoy Tabak" was founded in 1857 by tradesman Asmolov. The current possessor of the company, Savvidi, came to the production to operate as a simple loader, but quickly rose up the career stairs and became the manager. After the privatization of company in 1992, he started purchasing up its stock and in about a year became the general manager of the greater share of stock and correspondingly the executive director.
By 1999, "Donskoy Tabak" was making about 30 billion of cigarettes per year. The 90 % of the produced goods were affordable unfiltered cigs. In 2000 Savvidi understood the importance of the current technologies employment in the manufacturing process and chose to update the making process. Due to the introduction of new technologies, smokes became even cheaper and more qualitative. Moreover, a few new brands have shown up. Among the new brands was Donskoy Tabak.
Donskoy Tabak cigarettes are heavy and smooth. They have 20 mg of tar and 0.8 mg of nicotine. Now, you can order Donskoy Tabak in two filtered versions: Donskoy Tabak Dark, the strongest brand, packed in dark brown boxes, which sort of reminds of cigars and Donskoy Tabak Lights - a milder version, containing 9 mg of tar and 0.8 mg of nicotine.
