Liggett Ducat Brand
LD (short for Liggett Ducat, the name of the original manufacturer) is a Russian brand of cigarettes, currently owned by Japan Tobacco. LD was first launched in Russia in 1999 and quickly became Russia’s number one cigarette brand. Liggett Ducat was bought in 2000 by the Gallaher Group, which in turn was acquired by JTI in 2007. The original Liggett Ducat factory, where LD was manufactured, was shut down in 2016.
In 2016, JTI announced they would introduce the LD brand on the United States cigarette market with the Red, Silver and Menthol (Green) varieties. The brand would become a discount brand. It aimed to challenge discount brands such as L&M and Pall Mall.
