This dark Kendal flake is manufactured in Kendal, Cumbria, England. Since 1792 the process of making this tobacco has remained the same. It starts as 7 lbs. of hand-stripped leaf and goes through a steaming process prior to being pressed. The cake, having been prepared, is wrapped in a select leaf and packed by hand into a 12-inch square. This cake is pressed and left for a minimum of two hours. Then, the pressed cake is placed into a steam press where it is baked at full heat for two to three hours. The baked cake has then taken on 1792’s characteristic rich, dark colour. It’s hardening occurs during cooling. Once the process of cutting the flake and adding a tonquin flavor is carried out, hand-wrapping and packing finalizes 1792, making it ready for rubbing into your pipe. 50g tin. Note: these are now shipping in plain packaging.
