Gawith Hoggarth & Co.: Dark Bird's Eye Vintage Cut Pipe Tobacco
Product Number: 005-001-0088
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.
Dark Bird's Eye is a bold mixture that showcases mature Virginias and Dark-Fired Kentucky for a rich flavor profile that highlights the varietals' natural essences. While Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. has traditionally only offered shag-cut versions of their blends to the U.S. market, this Vintage Cut edition presents Dark Bird's Eye in a classic ribbon format.
