The Kent brand of cigarettes was introduced in 1952 by the Lorillard Tobacco Company. It is named after one of the company's executives, Herbert Kent. They were one of the first brands to promote filtered cigarettes as a healthier smoking alternative. The timing could not have been better as a study had been published that year outlining the potential harm of unfiltered cigarettes. Their sales skyrocketed.
Kent cigarettes enjoyed tremendous popularity until the 1970s. As more companies began to offer filtered cigarettes, Kent began to lose sales. Lorillard then sold the overseas rights of Kent to British American Tobacco. Lorillard was then acquired by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company in 2015.
Kent cigarettes have always been known for their quality tobacco and genuine cigarette taste. In recent years, Kent has been on the forefront of cigarette innovation. They especially focused on their futuristic packaging and cigarette technology. One innovation is the HD Surround taste system which uses special filters and perforation methods to control air flow. The HD Surround taste system reduces overall harshness and magnifies the natural, smooth, clean tobacco flavor of the cigarette.
