    A new blend from Samuel Gawith was released at this year's Inter-Tabac tradeshow in Dortmund, Germany and is now on sale in the UK via several e-tailers.  

    The blend is a VaPer as is only the second perique containing blend in the SG range.  It is also a roll cut in the style of Escudo or Dunhill DNR but with a 6% perique core.  Feel free to let us know how you get on with it.

    As creator of Bothy Flake Bob 'The Blender' Gregory will  need no introduction to KPC members.  Bob has been a busy chap since the merger of Samuel Gawith and Gawith Hoggarth & Co, but luckily he has found time to do an in-depth interview on the Pipesmagazine Radio podcast.  To listen to the interview go HERE.

    The KPC has joined and pledged financial support (and a tin of Samuel Gawith's Bothy Flake) to an unusual venture, namely The Riddle of The Sands Adventure Club.  What is this strange club and why would we do this?  Well, for fans of the famous spy adventure book 'The Riddle of The Sands' by Erskine Childers, this is an intriguing concept where two chaps - Tim Wright and Llyod Shepherd - will be setting out to follow in the footsteps of 'Carruthers' and 'Davies' (the book's heroes) in meticulous detail using the exact timeline detailed in the book.  It all kicks off on 23rd September 2015.  

    An interesting anecdote about the book is that Davies asks Carruthers to purchase "a pound of Raven mixture" pipe tobacco before joining him on his yacht 'Dulcibella'.  During some discussion on the ROTS Adventure club site about Raven mixture, the KPC's very own Bothy Flake got a mention so we decided to join the club and contribute a tin for their journey.  

    On behalf of the KPC I would like to wish all the very best to 'notCarruthers' (Tim) and 'notDavies' (Llyod) on there adventure; oh and have a few good bowls of Raven mixture on the adventure.
