Located on the island of Jersey between England and France, the J.F. Germain and Son company started making Germain's pipe tobacco in 1820. Two things in particular have contributed to the quality of its present-day tobaccos, one, the ideal climate offered by Jersey; and two, two hundred years of accumulated experience, lovingly handed down the generations. This has led to the production of some of the most renowned pipe tobacco. If you haven't tried Germain's, you're not doing youself any favors. They set the bar for a classic smoke!
