    We were alerted about this new tobacco from Mac Baren buy our friends at The Danish Pipe Shop  As some of you will know, the chaps at the Danish Pipe Shop have formed a special relationship with Mac Baren, so it is no surprise that they get used to launch new Mac Baren blends.

    Bold Kentucky is the lastest in the highly successful HH range.  Click on the image below for full details.

    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.
