After studying tobacco for years, Charles opened Rattray's in Perth, Scotland in 1903. The success of the store was resounding and in a short time Charles and his tobacco store became a one-stop store for pipe tobacco smokers from all over the British Isles.
When Charles decided to add pipe manufacturing to his business, he acquired the services of English pipe carvers, as only they could put the unique touch to his designs and get the product out quickly. After decades of success, Rattray's was acquired by Kohlhase & Kopp. In keeping with the European spirit of solidarity, Rattray's pipes are produced all over the continent, in different countries. The result is a diverse and unique collection of pipes that only a few companies can rival. No matter what style, level or type of pipe tobacco you are looking for, Rattray's has a pipe for you!
