    You left out Fribourg & Treyer (UK) but I am not sure whether or not they have a website. They are also produced by Wilson's of Sharrow.

    They are only produced by Wilsons & Co. (Sharrow), aren't they?

    And it also has this touch of history. I added a note to the Wilsons & Co. (Sharrow) link.

  • A few that you might wish to add: Arnold Andre, Bespoke, Dean Swift (available only in the US market), Hedges, Lotzbeck, Sternecker, and Swedish Match (which owns Dingler, among others). There are also a bunch of American-style snuff producers, if you're interested.

    Thanks for mentioning Dallmayr, that was a new one to me!

    Thanks Andy!

    I missed some of those, right. I will add them after checking them for websites. Lotzbeck does not exist anymore but its snuff is produced by another company, as far as I know.

    Thanks for mentioning Dallmayr, that was a new one to me!
    I am not sure if it is not produced by Poeschl. I requested more information by Dallmayr on this.

    I got an answer from Arnold André. Very quick by the way. This answer explained the constellation of Swedish Match, Imperial Tobacco and Arnold André. See update of first comment.

  • This is getting too complicated for my poor brain. It's hard to keep track of who makes what, and for whom. Isn't Imperial Tobacco part of British American Tobacco, formerly Brown and Williamson, which was bought a couple of years ago by R. J. Reynolds? Sheesh.

    Thanks for tracking that down; I'm learning a lot here!

    I will do my very best and it will develop over time. As long as the producers are willing to tell with whom they stick together, it is relatively easy. Some just do not use e-mail, even if they say so on their websites.

    Thanks, added.

  • The von Eicken site doesn't mention any snuffs, though-- a pity, as I'd never heard of Chapman and wanted to learn more about it.

  • AlexAlex Posts: 569
    This may be right. I am looking forward to an answer to your e-mail. Maybe Chapman is an own brand or just a regional version.
    ·
  • This is very interesting. Does that web retailer sell worldwide, or only in Poland? I'll have to get some for my collection somehow.
    Filek, have you had the "Strong" and the "Virginia?" If so, could you describe them? I'm quite intrigued.

  • By the way, there's an interesting article on the history of von Eicken here.

  • Thank you! (And your English is just fine.) Could you tell me if that webshop ships outside Poland please?

    Thanks,

    Andy

  • I will gladly trade you any kind of snuff you like for the Chapman's. I'll double the weight. You're welcome to contact me at andrew "at" snufftalk "dot" org, and we can work out the details. Alternatively, if you have a PayPal account, I would glady pay you for the snuff and for your time. Or I could just mail you a big lump of gold. :-)

    Thanks,

    Andy

    So they are producing snuff ;)

    You mean they are producing snuff industrial style?
    ·
  • AlexAlex Posts: 569
    Added to Indian producer links: Perumal Snuff Company and Sree Radha & Co.
    ·
  • I'm pretty sure Smith still makes their own.
    ·
  • AlexAlex Posts: 569
    How about listing G.smith & Sons as a separate producer?
    Sure, added it. Thanks!
    ·
  • AlexAlex Posts: 569
    Added 'M/s. Ranchhoddas Zinabhai Dholakia' from India.
    ·
  • "Dholakia" must be the "Gawith" of India. :-)

  • AlexAlex Posts: 569
    Definitely!

    Welcome Ketsok!

    Thank you for your pleasant offer. Thanks to Filek I got some of the Chapman snuffs. They are quite sweet in taste with an original scent, I feel.

    Have fun,
    Alex

    I am German, so I got easy supply here with Bernard snuffs, thanks a lot. Maybe some of the guys from the US are interested.
    ·
  • AlexAlex Posts: 569
    no! i mean there is no Bernard Tabak snuffs on list ;)
    I see. They are already listed as Gebrüder Bernard.

    Hey Alex, what J&H Wilson from England,...
    Added it. Thanks.

    Hedges, right. Andy already mentioned it, but I forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me. I just added them.
    The URL you posted should not be confused with the McGahey Shop. Very similar.
