Experienced snus lovers confidently declare that Swedish snus is the best in the world. Many brands are producing smokeless tobacco, but according to most, General is the best brand of snus. The history of the company is very long and goes back more than 150 years. At that time Johan A. Beauman founded it because he wanted to get something new. He became a real revolutionary because he developed a completely new flavor of tobacco. It mixed more than 20 different kinds of tobacco with the addition of bergamot oil. With this development, it appeared to be a completely new flavor, it was stronger and now everyone could feel the flavor of pepper and citrus.
Over the years, the company has created a huge number of different snus lines, including Loose, Portion, Long, Mini, White, Strong, Extra Strong, and Onyx. Despite the different formats, the basis of the snus has remained the same over the years. Thanks to its huge assortment and unusual taste, the General brand has always been a leader in the snus market.
General brand history
Approximately in 1850 the contractor and mason Boman founded the tobacco company Körner & Boman in Gothenburg. Körner was responsible for the capital and Boman for the vision. Johan Boman was known in Gothenburg for his attention to detail. He had the same attitude toward snuff. When he didn't find tobacco that met his standards, he decided to make it himself. He traveled the world trying to find the best tobacco leaves and began experimenting with different combinations. He studied the manufacturing process even more carefully.
The development work was in progress for four years. Johan A Boman tested and combined different varieties. In 1866, he finally found a recipe he was satisfied with. Even today only a few people know Boman's basic recipe.
The further development of the company was obvious. In addition to the revolution at the expense of bagged snus, the General brand made history at the expense of other innovations. In 2003, for example, General White Portion was first introduced in white sachets, which did not spread as much as traditional portioned sachets. In 2005, General Onyx was introduced, a new version of General, but with black sachets. The traditional flavor hasn't gone anywhere, Boman's legacy isn't lost at all.
