Our Group


STG Lane, Georgia, U.S.A.

Scandinavian Tobacco Group Lane Ltd. is a market leader in pipe tobacco, roll-your-own tobacco and little cigars. Based in Tucker, Georgia, STG Lane’s iconic brand portfolio includes Captain Black®, a leading pipe tobacco brand; Bugler®, a leading roll-your-own brand; Winchester®, the original little cigar and many others.


STG Lane was originally founded in 1890 in Dresden, Germany by the grandfather of Herman G. Lane. The family settled in New York City in 1938 and established a retail store at 122 East 42nd Street. 

Shortly thereafter Lane established a manufacturing facility on New York’s upper East Side. The company grew to over 150 employees and was soon selling premium tobaccos throughout the United States. 

In 1983 the manufacturing facilities were moved to Tucker, Georgia and the company had various owners. In 2004, Lane became part of Reynolds American, until Scandinavian Tobacco Group acquired the company in March of 2011. 

Today STG Lane continues to grow its leadership in the market and exports products to more than 20 countries around the world.
