Fribourg & Treyer were one of the most renowned independent Snuff houses in the UK. From 1720 Fribourg and Treyer perfected their snuff blends behind the historic bow windowed shop in Haymarket, were their unique and original blends captivated the London crowds and international visitors.
Unfortunately in the 1980’s a greedy Landlord increased the rent on the Haymarket shop front making the business unprofitable. Many Fribourg and Treyer snuff fanatics feared the worst and when Imperial Tobacco bought the recipes it seemed as if the coffin lid had been firmly nailed. However one of the most renowned snuff houses in the UK managed to buy the recipes from Imperial Tobacco so Fribourg and Treyer is now manufactured by Wilsons of Sharrow of Sheffield and looks like it is here to stay.FRENCH CAROTTE
