Trip to Peterson
September 2017


I was lucky enough to get an invitation to visit the Peterson Pipe factory in Dublin. It was such an amazing experience, and we had such lovely hosts! I just had to write down what happened, and the hard work that went into creating a single pipe! We all know their pipes are hand crafted, but I don't think we realised that every single bit of the pipe is hand crafted. From the carving of the piece of Briar wood, to the stamping of the pipe number/code! I hope this article will put across just how amazing it was, but of course, nothing will come close to being there first hand an experiencing it all for yourself!

5 Things You Need to Know About Cigar Boxes!
September 2017
Cigar Boxes


Cigar boxes, some can be plain, others can be very glamorous. Our eyes are drawn to them and equally our mind is drawn towards the premium cigars inside. If you're buying a luxury-class cigar, there is an expectation that the packaging lives up to the brand image. But though they're equal parts storage unit and marketing tactic, cigar boxes have a story behind them.

Whether it's because of their practicality or our general mentality to hoard, cigar boxes tend to live long after the smokes are nothing more than just a memory. While many get thrown away, it's not uncommon for smokers to repurpose them into Spanish cedar drawers that hold everything from cigar cutters, matches and other accessories, to paper clips and whatever else that happens to be laying around the house.

Over my years of being the biggest and best cigar merchant in the UK, I've travelled the world and had the opportunity to visit many different cigar bars and shops, some of them have particularly stood out. The Clayton is one of those places; ultra cool and super sophisticated with an extremely friendly atmosphere.
