FERMENTING TOBACCO

  • The weight of the stacked leaves, combined with the heat and humidity, ferments the tobacco and releases impurities

  • Water is sprayed on the tobacco leaves to maintain proper fermentation temperatures

  • This 'sweating' removes oils, sap, ammonia, tar and nicotine from the leaves

  • The stacks are rotated to ensure a consistency of fermentation and to avoid composting
