In 1830 W.D. and H.O. Wills cigarette company was formed in Bristol, England, with "Three Castles and Gold Flake" being developed and manufactured in 1878 and "Woodbine" ten years later. "Gold Flake" is not a brand, nor company but refers to cigarettes using rich gold flake tobacco. In 1900 a subsidary in Australia was founded by Henry Herbert Wills which was named "W.D. & H.O. Wills (Australia) Ltd.”
