Dunhill cigarettes are a luxury brand of cigarettes made by the British American Tobacco company. They are usually priced above the average for cigarettes in the region where they are sold. They are exported mostly throughout Europe, the Middle East, South Asia, South Africa, South Korea, Argentina, Brazil, Malaysia (manufactured by British American Tobacco Malaysia a.k.a. Rothmans Group), Indonesia (manufactured by Bentoel Group), New Zealand and Australia but can also be found on the Internet and in duty-free and smoke shops in the United States and Canada.

Dunhill Light cigarettes are packaged in a predominantly white packet, with a bevelled edged square of red in the centre. Dunhill has decided to phase out this pack and have introduced marketing information that the blue box described below is the same cigarette although carbon monoxide levels and nicotine levels are altered.

Dunhill International cigarettes come in a red packet and are one of the most expensive luxury cigarette brands available. The current Dunhill King size beveled packs (which come in Full flavor, light and menthol light) are available only in the United States through specialty tobacconist shops.

Dunhill (minus the "International") are a more expensive version produced by BAT, and are sold in European (including Russian), Asian-Pacific, and Canadian markets.

Dunhill cigarettes were favored by gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson and [1] English rock musician John Lennon[citation needed] .

Dunhill International cigarettes American distribution is owned and operated by Reynolds American, who are most notably famous for their Camel brand.
