Solani Dutch Pipe Tobacco
Solani is a relatively new brand to the pipe world but don’t be deceived the founder has a vast knowledge of blending and has been responsible for the blending of extremely popular Tobacco’s such as Borkum Riff, which is one of our biggest sellers. Rudiger Will has a very strong passion for the art of blending, which is a complex process and requires decades of experience and understanding of every aspect of the leaf from soil PH to the light it’s grown in. Many companies claim they use the finest Tobacco to produce their blends but Solani truly only use the finest aged leaves for maxim depth of flavour.
As many companies rely on past recipes and heavy casings to create the perfect Tobacco we can safely say that Rudiger Will is one of the last true “master blenders” in the world today. The blend numbers on the tin are closing on 1000 recipes, which shows the number of corrections he has made to create the perfect blend for your enjoyment.

The Solani Silver Flake is an incredible Pipe Tobacco blended using premium dark red and sweet Virginias from the “Border Belt”, light yellow Virginia from South Carolina and dark-fired, spicy Kentucky leaves. It has been cooked under pressure before slicing into a long flake. There is no additional casing or flavouring for those who appreciate the natural raw flavour of quality Tobacco.
The front of the tin bears an illustration from 1943 when the Spanish King sent Columbus with three caravels across the ocean and arrived in the “new world”
