Viceroy CigarettesViceroy cigarettes are manufactured by Brown & Williamson. This company was first taken over by British American Tobacco and then later by Reynolds American Inc. in 2004. Even though R.J. Reynolds has written off the marketing support for this brand the company maintains the Viceroy Cigarettes distribution in places of consumers demand. Their markets are very strong in East and West Europe, the Middle East, Turkey and Argentina.
As the name suggests, the brand has a royal attachment. ‘Viceroy’ is a local ruler and a royal representative of the monarch himself and the word is of French origin where “roi” means king. Not belittling the name, it has maintained the leading spot in many know how technologies in the tobacco industry.
