LAST WEEK’S TRIVIA ANSWER
I trace my roots back to 1847, when a tobacconist opened a cigar shop in London. Some of the companies now part of me are as old or older. I made my first cigarette in 1854. An American company bought me in 1919, and I introduced my Marlboro brand in 1924. Today, I encompass cigarettes, cigars, tobacco, vaping products, wine and more, including a stake in Budweiser’s maker. My brands include Copenhagen and Skoal. I spun off my international division in 2008, giving it my founder’s name. My newish name is derived from the Latin word for “high.” Who am I? (Answer: Altria Group)
