Brand refers to Ernst Krenek's opera "Jonny spielt auf" (Jonny strikes up) which had it's first performance at Austria's opera house in December 1927 which was a very big success with more than 400 performances within 10 years until the Nazis forbid it since they define it as "degenerated art"

Brand got introduced in 1928 by ÖSTERREICHISCHE TABAK-REGIE, break from 1943 until 1948, re-introduction in September 1948 (there was as well a Filter version from 1960 to 1976) and discontinued April 2016
