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 Early Morning Pipe Tobacco
Peterson Early Morning Pipe is Latakia, Oriental and Virginia, blended to suit the morning hours of the day when you’re sipping your first warm drink of the day.
Is it coffee or tea for you?
This pipe tobacco has been waking up the palates of pipe smokers around the world for well over half a century! The manufacture may have changed hands a few times over the years, the original brand owner, Dunhill may have dropped it but it’s still here and going strong, with new owner Peterson.
Peterson and blending partner, STG have not changed the recipe this time around, so you can experience all the same rousing flavours you used to.
The tobacco is ribbon cut, which leads to a straightforward packing of the pipe. Mostly brown and tan in colour though there is Latakia in here, it is a small proportion.
