Samuel Gawith: Bothy Flake 50g Pipe Tobacco
Product Number: 003-059-0063
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.
A bothy is a small hut designed for use by hikers and travelers, with a number located in the Scottish Highlands. Public shelters stocked with basic accommodations, bothies are communal abodes, functioning off the understanding that any food and resources used be restocked for the next traveler. Samuel Gawith's Bothy Flake was blended for the Kearvaig Pipe Club — a club formed in 2012 at the Keavaig Bothy on Scotland's norther shore — and as a pipe tobacco, it's a mixture of Virginias and Latakia topped with Highland malt whiskey: the perfect blend to enjoy as a respite on stormy nights.
Your rainy day smoke awaits.
