Description Ref # NRCelticTali

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.

Upon opening the tin, the aroma is sweet a sort of cherry liqueur smell, very perfumey... a bit overpowering. It lights easy and stays going, not a problem there but the smoke tastes of the aroma- the cherry is very identifiable it's definitely there, with the quality tobacco and feels a little unbalanced. It does create a lovely creamy texture towards the middle of the bowl and towards the end the cherry backs down as if it's lost a battle that has lasted throughout the bowl. Some people will love the power of this blend while others won't be so fond, this one is definitely down to your own personal preference.
