In Part 2 of the Mac Baren Factory tour we get to see more of the impressive factory and the different ways tobaccos are processed into finished, smokable goods. We start off with some large full leaves that are used as a wrapper, much like in the cigar production process.
If you watch closely, an intriguing future new tobacco coming from Mac Baren is revealed. You can see the production of spun tobaccos. Something that looks like a giant cigar is produced using a giant hand rolling machine that looks like a huge cigarette rolling machine. Per calls these giant tobacco rolls a "sausage", which is then cut into "coins".
You will also see the the packaging into tins of the Mac Baren Navy Flake, which is partly automated and partly done by hand.
Then we take a tour of the work-in-process tobaccos, which just look wonderfully delicious and are a few steps closer to becoming your favorite blends. It was fun picking up big handfuls of tobacco and seeing hundreds of large wooden crates filled with literally tons of tobacco.
Please enjoy Part 2 of our video tour of the Mac Baren Tobacco Factory, which runs about 15-minutes.
Inspecting a large full leaf that will be part of the wrapper of a spun tobacco. Several leaves are used. First the wrapper is laid down, and then the core.
The tobaccos are then rolled into a giant "tobacco sausage". Then they are given a little pressure. The pressure along with the sugar water holds them together.
Navy Flake is being packaged for shipping. Coins are drying after cutting. Work-in-process tobaccos waiting to become final product.
There is literally TONS of tobacco of all different types being processed into several different Mac Baren tobaccos blends.
It smells very nice in the factory with all of these different types of tobaccos.
