If you are just going to touch the culture of hookah smoking and don’t know what products to start with, then we advise you to pay attention to Al Fakher tobacco. And that’s why.
Al Fakher Story
The company was founded back in 1999 in the United Arab Emirates. In the country where hookah smoking has its own long traditions. The enterprise was established largely due to the increased interest in hookah. Passion for hookah at that time was stirred up not only in the Middle East, but also in the Western world. In fact, it was one of the first companies that consciously adapted its products to European consumers.
In a short time, Al Fakher managed to press the Nakhla company on the market. Until that moment, it had been the main leader in the production of flavored tobaccos – muassels. Al Fakher muassels have gained such popularity that almost every hookah smoker knows them. Naturally, this brand is not got past by any single newcomer.
Today, the company has an office in Dubai, four large factories and distributes its products in more than 80 countries.
The Al Fakher tobacco is made of Virginia tobacco leaf, which is grown in Germany and France. The production begins with the soaking of tobacco leaf that reduces the percentage of nicotine and harmful tar in it. Then soaked tobacco is impregnated with syrup, glycerin and natural flavors, all of the components have its own special taste. The production’s details are kept in the strictest confidence. This allows Al Fakher to remain the most sought-after muassels’ manufacturer in the world.
When tobacco is ready, it is sealed. It is important that the blend, as long as possible, not to lose its freshness, moisture and taste.
The made mass is first put in a bag of multilayer foil. Then it is placed in a cardboard box, which is wrapped with cellophane on top.
There are three ways to pack by Al Fakher.
- A box with a bag containing 50 g of tobacco.
- A larger box weighing 500 g, containing ten 50-gram sachets.
- A plastic bucket weighing 1 kg with a multilayer bag inside. The bucket has a lid with a zip-lock latch, which reliably protects the contents from air. Such kilogram buckets are usually purchased by hookah bars.
