Gawith Hoggarth & Co.: Balkan Mixture 50g Pipe Tobacco
Product Number: 003-069-0002
Founded in Kendal, Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. has fashioned quality pipe tobacco since 1887, utilizing processes and techniques that date to 1792. The Cumbria-based company prioritizes natural tobacco flavor, and in many of their mixtures, Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. maintains the standards enforced by the United Kingdom's strict purity laws of the 19th and 20th centuries — such laws dictating how much and what type of flavorings could be added to pipe tobacco and ensuring that sub-quality leaf wasn't hidden under the veil of exorbitant toppings.
Balkan Mixture is an archetypal Balkan blend, featuring Virginias, Orientals, and Latakia. While both Balkan and English blends are known for their use of such components, Balkan mixtures traditionally emphasize Orientals; whereas, English blends focus more on Latakia — a subtle variation but one that makes Gawith, Hoggarth & Co.'s Balkan Mixture an ideal choice for pipe smokers drawn to Orientals-centric blends.
