To my recollection GH has always had a feast or famine distribution cycle. I got over McClelland's departure, I can surely get over GH's delays.

I sent an email to Smoke King, in England, hoping they might shed some light on the unavailability of GH Tobaccos in the U.S. I really don't expect a reply. The Brittish have never been particularly helpful on such matters.
Dear Sir or Madam:

I understand that you are a family owned tobacconist since 1989. I am an Arizona, USA based pipe smoker. Knowing that you are in the retail tobacco trade in the UK, I hope you will take some time out of your busy day dealing with paying customers and the arcanery of EU regulations and the hell that is Her Majesty's Custom and Excise in order to answer the following query: why can't I find my favorite Gawith and Hoggarth tobacco in the United States. I hope you understand I will not be purchasing any from you.

I really do not expect a reply, what with the fact that you English just dont seem to really care about providing good service to non-customers. However, I do enjoy making everybody's day a little more surreal. Please accept the attached pictures of my Chartreuse cat, Lucy.

Very truly yours

Brig. Sir Andrew Derpington-Derpington, Ret. (Mrs.)
I actually did get a reply from Smoke King, in England. They said they weren't aware of any unavailability of GH Tobaccos in the U.K.
Excellent. In a similar vein, I'm unaware of any unavailability of GH tobaccos in the U.S. I did a google search just a few minutes ago and found plenty of gawith and hoggarth tobacco for sale and in stock. Will you only order from Smoking Pipes?
I buy the 500 g boxes of Brown Flake, and Scotch Flake. No place I've checked have any boxes

And there is next to no Samuel Gawith anywhere as well.

Thanks, Josh!

I wish I had this information before buying 10 more SG Mayors Chocolate at Smoking Pipes. Tobacco Pipes has the 250g boxes of this and it would have saved me over $40. Oh, well. Win some. Lose some. Story of life.

This just in from Jeff at 4Noggins:

"we are all waiting patiently for the importer to get their latest shipment. This has been going on so long I really don't know what is happening."

In order to expedite the process, I propose that the middlemen get cut out, and the factory in Kendal can ship directly to "Southern Arizona" and Greensboro, NC. 8)

Yup. Cut out the middleman. I'd be glad to distribute GH Brown Flake. That is, what I don't consume.
