About Borkum Riff
Borkum Riff was originally a lighthouse located at 53° 58′ N, and 6° 22′ E in Heligoland Bight off the Dutch coast in the North Sea. It was a landmark for seafarers and was well-known to Swedish radio listeners, as weather reports mentioned Borkum Riff several times a day. In the 1960’s a pipe tobacco was launched in Sweden under the brand name “Borkum Riff”. Today, Borkum Riff Authentic pipe tobacco is owned and blended by Scandinavian Tobacco Group.
