The grand history of Rattray’s Pipes begins in the year of 1880 with the birth of Charles Rattray. After studying tobacco for years, Charles opened up The House of Rattray in Perth, Scotland in 1903. The success of the shop shot forward at an incredible rate, and in no time at all Charles and his tobacco blends became a hotspot for serious pipe smokers across the British Isles. Many of Charles’ blends are still manufactured today as Rattray’s Pipe Tobacco. There are many that love the Rattray pipes.
When Charles decided to add pipe manufacturing the company, he enlisted the services of pipe carvers from England, so that they could put a unique flare on his designs and help him get product out fast. After decades of success, Rattray’s was acquired by Kohlhase & Kopp. In keeping with the spirit of solidarity of Europe, Rattray’s pipes are produced around the continent in different countries. The result of this is a diverse and unique collection of pipes that few other companies can rival. No matter the style, level, or type of tobacco pipe you are looking for, Rattray’s has a pipe for you!
