Many smokers in the US are already embracing the consumption of Golden smoking papers; today the UK will also get that chance.

David Brown – Director of ‘Shine’, one of the largest distributor in the United States, has granted exclusive trading rights in the UK for sale of their 24 carat rolling papers to Rolling Paper Express.

David commented at the UK launch about the how the idea of smoking golden papers evolved in the US, ”We really want to put gold on everything, and found that people loved it. Many clubs, casinos and VIP bars have now committed to deploying the golden smoking paper to all haute culture lovers.’’ It has not, however, been without thorough testing, David added: “Test, after test and lots of gold ashes, we have achieved the perfect mix of gold on the outside and a perfectly consistent burning paper on the inside. The new gold version even stayed lit longer and burned better, leaving gold in the ashes.’’

This is not exactly modern day hype. Greeks believed that gold was a blend of water and sunlight, while the Egyptians thought it was the skin of their gods. The fact is that this precious, soft, rare metal has been inspiring and stimulating human interests for a long time. For some, gold consumption was an act of achieving excellence, where others thought it would offer the restoration of youth.

As we know, wealthy societies of the ancient and modern worlds have gone beyond the indulgence that is traditionally associated with gold by consuming the metal internally. Kings, Queens, Russian Tsars, Emirs and Emperors have embraced gold in their decorations, clothes and even their food and drink as a way to associate themselves with the gods or to plainly embrace the most sensualist of lifestyles. Today, the rich and wealthy happily spend large amounts of money, consuming golden leaf burgers, golden decorated deserts and liquors with shiny, yellow particles of pure gold floating inside. The next step naturally was to wrap tobacco in a golden paper and indulgently inhale the precious metal.

Diageo provide the UK with Gold Rolling Papers distributed exclusively by Rolling Papers Express from the glitzy clubs of Las Vegas and New York to smoking patrons of the UK.

Customer Impact

DJ Natty Heavy, from the Freshly Baked Radio live show in the US loved it too and then whispered down the microphone: “Put 24 carats of gold up in your mouth." Pop stars, DJs and luxury lovers are already fans of the golden rolling paper.
