After several successful house blends like Mr. Nielsen, Mrs. Nielsen, Brown Plug, River Plug, VV92, Beginner’s Luck and B. S. Flake we proudly present a new unique house blend called G Flake to celebrate our 50th anniversary in 2019.
G Flake comes from an idea we had since we presented VV92 in 2016 where we used grappa in a pipe tobacco for the first time. Nikolaj Nielsen – CEO of The Danish Pipe Shop – is a big fan of Italian grappa and this passion created the idea of VV92 and now G Flake. G Flake is top quality matured Virginia tobacco sprayed with real Italian dark aged grappa and then tinned. The woody taste of grappa combined with alcohol, natural sugar and Virginia makes a perfect match. The Virginia flake is equivalent to My Own Blend number 45 and 333. This is a perfect tobacco to smoke right away, but also for cellaring.
The tobacco is developed by CEO Nikolaj Nielsen and master blender Lasse Berg from My Own Blend, and it is produced in both Denmark and Germany.
