    Gawith Done In the US?

    Well give it is nearly a year later and yet another shipment of SG has just left the factory for the USA I guess you all now know it was bollocks. Years back there was a consolidation of distributors, meaning Arango was no longer used and Philips and King sold SG. All FDA requirements were dealt...

    Official Press Release - Gawith Hoggarth & Co

    We have recently been made aware of rumours posted on forums and social media and in email newsletters stating that Gawith Hoggarth is in some sort of financial difficulty. So we thought it was time to put this misinformation in the ground. Most of the rumours and speculation are centred...

    Why Does My Tin Of Tobacco Taste Different To The Sample?

    Nothing is added to the tin interior like this by GH.

    What is Your Opinion on the Taste of SG's Products Post Merger?

    Sorry I don't understand what you mean by 'plume'?

    What is Your Opinion on the Taste of SG's Products Post Merger?

    Bit difficult to do tours due to health and safety, security etc but I do intend to try and get some videos done of production and if there is something particular you want to see, I'll try and sort that.

    What is Your Opinion on the Taste of SG's Products Post Merger?

    So today I spoke to my brother (CEO/director) about the issue raised. It seems that in the past there were complaints about SG products being too wet, not staying a light or even being able to be lit and there were many tins being returned or complained about as mouldy. In the old factory...

    What is Your Opinion on the Taste of SG's Products Post Merger?

    And yet others disagree and say no or little difference. There will always be batch differences with artisan products and ones that are predominantly handmade. And of course leaf quality and crop changes also make a difference. But as already said, its the same staff making the products in...

    New Samuel Gawith Tins

    SG has always been sold in tins mostly. Unfortunately the tins that used to be used could no longer be sourced, we managed to find other tins ad after trialing these and testing them and being assured by the manufacturers they would seal and remain sealed we bought a load (and we have to buy in...

    What is Your Opinion on the Taste of SG's Products Post Merger?

    I can assure you that very little has changed in the production of SG tobaccos since the merger. Indeed we took on several of the SG staff and they just moved to our factory, along with some of the machinery and carried on making the tobacco the same. There is a difference in how SG and GH...

    Not changed so much, now it's our "twist" ladies that do the process but pretty much same machinery used! I have some photos on the facebook page (or might be yet to come).
