As the name suggests, Black Ambrosia contains a very high proportion of Modern Mac Baren Cavendish, with only a little loose cut light Virginia added. This blend consists solely of Virginia tobaccos, which is rather rare as the majority of blends contain a little Burley tobacco. But not Black Ambrosia, which is made of 100% Virginia tobacco and yet the taste is still exquisite. As the last person to add to the taste, the tobacco master has been no less genial. Of course, the precise composition of the tobacco is a secret, but here is a hint: to complete the Modern Mac Baren Cavendish, the tobacco master has carefully added a blend of different fruit oils.
The company was established in 1887, when founder Harald Halberg purchased Svend BÌünnelycke's tobacco spinning mill and continued as a modern tobacco factory under the name Harald Halberg Tobaks- og Cigarfabrik. (Harald Halberg Cigar- and Tobacco factories) The company was renamed the Mac Baren Tobacco Company in 1995, as the company had become synonymous with its successful Mac Baren line of pipe tobaccos. The company remains family owned, and Henrik Halberg is both the firm's owner, and chief blender. The company employs 140 people, and exports tobacco products to 70 countries.
