A Peterson pilgrimage : Pipes and Tobaccos Magazine

A Peterson pilgrimage

Pet1The Irish have enacted some of the
most draconian anti-smoking laws and
highest tobacco taxes anywhere in the

Nassau Street in Dublin, where

tobacco merchants elsewhere can only
dream about.

Considering its massive wallmounted
displays of practically every
pipe shape and color produced for
Peterson’s far-flung lineup, it’s probably
no surprise that the store, owned by corporate
parent Kapp & Peterson, stands
proudly as one of the pre-eminent pipe
shopping destinations in the world. It’s
the rare Peterson loyalist who departs
from a visit with just a single piece of
briar in his shopping bag.
