Heritage of Kretek
Kretek is an uniquely Indonesian creation. Cloves, one of the three main components, are indigenous to the archipelago. Indonesia's rich and fertile soil, tropical climate and rainfall pattern, yield some of the best tobacco in the world.
Product of Nature
Kretek is made up of natural products. The blend of tobacco and cloves are finished off by special ingredients to enhance the aroma. Grown in Indonesia's unique climate and soil, these components are what give kretek its distinctive taste.
Kudus, City of Kretek
The story of kretek began in the city of Kudus, Central Java, Indonesia. It was here in the 1880 that Haji Jamhari, a local resident, first invented the kretek cigarette, mixing locally-grown cloves with tobacco.
