The Nurnberg brothers Friedrich and Heinrich Kapp, whose elegant Dublin tobacconist first opened for business in 1865 on Grafton Street, Dublin could scarcely have dreamt that they would participate in the birth of a legend.

Friedrich & Heinrich, who christened their shop simply 'Kapp Brothers', soon made a name for themselves making and selling quality Meerschaum and Briar Root pipes. It was not long before Charles Peterson, walked into Kapp Brothers Grafton Street premises armed with a revolutionary pipe and ambitious plans for the future.

There and then, Peterson suggested that the brothers go into partnership with him to turn his pipe dream into the world's dream pipe. They agreed and the company was renamed Kapp & Peterson. Kapp and Peterson went on to become Dublin's most fashionable and respected manufacturer and purveyor of fine smoking products. Pipe and cigar smokers would stroll down to the elegant premises for professional advice on the subtle nuances that determine a good handmade cigar or pipe. The Peterson brand was embraced by politicians, business leaders, sportsmen, artists and writers.

The skills and craft which Charles Peterson applied to his original invention are continued by the dedicated team of craftsmen at Peterson today. Whether as a gift for a friend or for your own personal use, you will appreciate the excellence of the Peterson range of cigars, tobaccos, pipes and smoking accessories.

Peterson Flake Pipe Tobacco

Back in late 2017, Dunhill announced they would cease producing their famous and much loved pipe tobacco range, which left many devoted fans with a heavy heart.

Peterson Flake is a straight Virginia, medium in strength which burns cool and smooth that has had an avid following through the years.

A welcoming tin note of hay, a little citrus and grass, earthiness and sweetness, greets you as you open the lid.

The flakes are wonderfully deep and rich in colour, especially for a Virginia and they are a pleasure to work into your pipe. Lighting is easy, as there is the right amount of moisture and the tobacco burns long and cool without biting.

The smoke is naturally sweet and one of the best examples of a straight Virginia out there.

It's no wonder people keep coming back to this tobacco.

As a new pipe smoker Ive been searching for my go to tobacco. More recently Ive been working through the Peterson Dunhill blends and have been pleased with my smokes so far but now Ive come to Nightcap and boy ho boy what a smoke. I find it extremely easy to get along with, its smooth, tasty and very satisfying. No harshness or bite, its just lovely and my number 1 so far.
