  • This years British Pipe Smoking Championships and Tobacco Show will be held on 26th July.  This year the venue has changed to the Castle Rock Brewery, Nottingham.  A pipe and tobacco get togather at a brewery?  What can be bad about that?  The KPC will be there! 

    Details are scant at the moment but we will post updates as we get more information.

    More news from Samuel Gawith.  This time the master blenders from Kendal have created a custom blend - 'Brown Sugar Flake' - for our friends in Copenhagen at the Danish Pipe Shop.  This blend contains Virginia, Cavendish and a pinch of Oriental and Burley and we understand that this blend will only be available from the Danish Pipe Shop.  For full details click on the image below.

    For 150 years the two iconic, Kendal-based English tobacco companies have traded seperately after an amicable split in 1865.  Samuel Gawith will leave their factory 'The Brown House' to move in with Gawith Hoggarth & Co.

    There will be no job losses and the SG tobaccos and snuffs will continue to me made in the same way, just under a different roof.  Both the SG and GH&Co. brands will remain unchanged.  I'm sure this will be a relief to the many fans of both companies out there!

    Bob Gregory, MD of Samuel Gawith has also assured the KPC that our own blend 'Bothy Flake' will continue to be produced.  Phew!

    There is a nice article on Pipesmagazine.com that gives detail of this historic event.

    We at the KPC wish both companies all the very best in their new venture.
