Rattray's stands for the highest quality of scottish smoking culture. Charles Rattray, born in 1880 in Scotland, spent his time training in the stronghold of the tobacco industry in Dundee, Scotland, and took the decision very early even to realize his ideas for tobacco mixtures. In 1903 he opened the House of Rattray in Perth, thus founding one of the largest tobacco companies on the British Isles. Fitting to the purest tobaccos, Rattray's initiated well-known pipemakers, like Cornelius Mänz and popular manufacturers like Butz-Choquin in France, to design and produce special pipe selections.
The pipe series are characterized by high quality materials and workmanship and are usually modeled on the tobacco names. Outstanding, of course, is the use of bog oak in the Bog Oak Collection, providing perfect qualities of smoke and cool smoking pleasure.
