Drucquer & Sons: Inns of Court 100g Pipe Tobacco
Product Number: 003-756-0005
Founded in 1841, Drucquer & Sons was a famed London tobacco shop that relocated to Berkeley, California, in 1928. The shop was more than just a tobacconist though; it was a community. It was where some of the greatest tobacco-blenders in recent memory — like Charl Ehwa of McClelland and Gregory Pease of G.L. Pease — first plunged their hands into flagrant tobacco. The historic shop may be gone, but its rich history and brand of pipe tobaccos continues, reformulated from their original recipes by Gregory Pease (and made by Cornell & Diehl) for the modern smoker.
For many decades, Inns of Court was one of Drucquer's most popular blends, and it was even known to have comforted members of Admiral Richard Byrd's crew during their second Antarctic expedition. This finely balanced mixture of Virginia tobaccos, White and Brown Burleys, and just a bit of Latakia and Perique keeps Inns of Court in high regard among aficionados of English blends, offering a complex, nutty taste and wonderful, nostalgic aroma that is sure to suit many palates.
