I'm not sure how to fix this. There's nothing here right now, but it's misleading-- there is no Dunhill Tobacco Company. Dunhill, with the death of the founder Alfred Dunhill, was split into a pipe company which was retained by the Dunhill family , a luxury goods company bought by a South African firm I need to look up the name of and the tobacco rights were sold to BAT British American Tobacco. Until now until, well, the end of April , Dunhill tobaccos have been made by Murray's in Belfast a pipe tobacco factory owned by BAT. Orlik is half owned by BAT also are made at the Orlik factory in Denmark, where production for the others now that Murray's in Belfast is closing will likely go. Anyway, the short and long of it is that that there is no Dunhill tobacco company.
