Charles Rattray's In 1911, the skilled tobacco blender Charles Rattray made his dream come true and took over a tobacco shop in the old Scottish capital of Perth. Only after a short while, the store became the top address for tobacco enthusiasts. In his small tobacco factory, he blended exquisite specialities for the discerning smoker. Today, Kohlhase Kopp & Co. continue to work to his original recipes and ideals.
Old Gowrie Old Gowrie is Virginian tobacco, prepared in an old-time manner either as a broken flake, or rubbed out for those who favour a finer cut. In the latter form, the various shades of the rich leaf are shown to particular advantage. Its essential charm is its coolness and tranquillizing properties. It has found it way all over the world wherever Englishmen go. It is their vade mecum.
