Description Ref # NRBothyflake

It all started in Kendal, England in 1792. Thomas Harrison was a successful snuff maker. Jane Harrison Thomas’s daughter, eloped in 1838 to a young man of Kendal, Samuel Gawith. When Mr. Harrison died in 1841, he left the business to his daughter and son-in-law, and over the years Samuel Gawith continued to prosper.

In 1865, Samuel Gawith died prematurely at the age of 48. His eldest son, also called Samuel, was only 22 and his father had wisely left the firm in the hands of three trustees, one of whom was this son. The elder trustee was Henry Hoggarth, a boyhood friend and neighbour in Lowther Street who had founded a Kendal firm of land agents and surveyors.

In 1878, Samuel and his younger brother, John Edward Gawith decided amicably to go their separate ways and so the two Gawith firms came into being. Samuel took over the snuff mill and business at Mealbank, and John stayed on in Lowther Street.

The firm in Lowther Street went through some troubled times but, in 1887, a new partnership was founded between Samuel’s youngest brother, William Henry, and Henry Hoggarth junior, to be known as Gawith Hoggarth Company.

Gawith Hoggarth Company continued to manufacture tobacco products and snuff at the Lowther Street works until 2009, when they moved to new business premises.

Then in 2015, the two companies returned back together under one roof.

Tasting Notes

Samuel Gawith Bothy Flake pipe tobacco blends the mystical aromas of the elements known to the Bothy Folk. This blend has been created to incorporate all of this for all pipe smokers to enjoy.

 Bothy Flake will transport you to the highlands of Scotland on a crisp winters evening.

Enjoy the strong whiskey and smoky flavour of this pipe tobacco around a burning log fire alongside your favourite tipple.

Inside every Samuel Gawith Bothy Flake pipe tin is a description card that reads as follows;

'Bothy': A hut or small cottage left unlocked for anybody to use free of charge.

Scotland has been blessed with many Bothies over the years all around the highlands. Giving explorers a wayfarer shelter from the wild and lonely places, both from the elements and a busy world...the simple pleasures of a cosy fire, malt whiskey and  fine pipe tobacco - all shared with one's companions - are the very essence of a Scottish Bothy night.

This is a very relaxing smoke, you dont want the bowl to end! The virginia is the major player here, the latakia is there, but just a hint, and thats enough with this blend, the malt whiskey topping is mild and not over powering, but there. A thicker short cut flake that is easy to rub out, moisture is perfect. Burns without re lighting, a delight.

As you open the tin, both excited and nervous for this flake you are greeted by the whiff of whiskey, and a good whiff at that. It took a while to light but when lit it's worth the effort that got you there. At first it is smokey, peaty and has a slight pepper taste but it passes quickly as it smooths out into the virginia flake it is, accompanied by the single malt whiskey flavouring you desire. It is amazingly unique and unlike anything else. A definite recommendation.
