Samuel Gawith: 1792 Flake 8oz Pipe Tobacco
Product Number: 003-059-0072
Samuel Gawith was the son-in-law of Thomas Harrison, a snuff manufacturer who moved his trade and equipment to Kendal, Cumbria, England from Scotland in 1792. Gawith inherited this equipment from Harrison, and the company has been crafting premium tobacco since, with one of Samuel's two sons continuing the brand while the other joined with Henry Hoggarth to establish Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. Though offering separate blends, both brands remain forever linked and still share the same manufacturing facility in England's Lake District, utilizing processes and techniques that date to the brands' 1792 roots. In many of their mixtures, Samuel Gawith 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.
Samuel Gawith's most popular flake tobacco, 1792 features Dark-Fired Tanzanian leaf and Virginias that are steamed and then pressed. Before being cut, the plug is wrapped in a select leaf, pressed again for over two hours, and then baked in a steam press for another two to three hours, further marrying the flavors. Marked by a dark color and decadent flavor profile, 1792 is topped with tonquin and offers a bold, full-bodied smoking experience.
