Copenhagen is dipping tobacco (moist snuff). Dating back to 1822, it is produced by the U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company (also the manufacturer of Skoal). It is a finely ground tobacco in three traditional textures: Fine Cut, Long Cut, and pouches. Copenhagen tobacco is packaged in a 1.2 oz fiberboard can with a metal lid all cans sold outside of the continental us are black plastic cans . The other brand "Cope" is a newer version of product, seeking to deliver a more mellow taste to users. All Copenhagen brands are packaged in a cardboard can with the customary metal lid. "Cope" is packaged in a plastic can with the customary metal lid. Copenhagen contains 2.31-2.67 milligrams of unprotonated nicotine per gram, depending on the cut.

History

George Weyman, the inventor of Copenhagen moist snuff, opened his tobacco shop in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1822 selling Copenhagen Snuff. In April 1845, Weyman's tobacco shop was one of the few businesses to survive the Pittsburgh Fire. Nearly two decades later, George Weyman relinquished control of the shop to his sons William and Benjamin Weyman. Following their father's death in 1870, William and Benjamin officially adopted the name Weyman & Bros. The company was acquired by the American Tobacco Company (ATC) in 1905, and renamed the Weyman-Bruton Company (WBC) after ATC broke up in 1911. By 1922, WBC had taken over and renamed their company after the United States Tobacco Company. Company headquarters was relocated to Greenwich, Connecticut in 1970. United States Tobacco Company renamed itself the U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company in 2001.[1] The company's website, FreshCope.com, went online in 2004.
