An FYI post for anyone that might be interested. Been keeping my eyes opened for a couple of weeks sniffing this out, it appears that Kohlhase, Kopp and Co., blend for several brands. The only reason this matters to me is because they make several of the blends I've been real pleased with and will be trying more...the current list I have that they blend are:

Peterson
Rattray’s
Astley’s
Robert McConnell
Savinelli
Wessex

I'll keep looking in case there are others, but since they are responsible for Rattray's 7-Reserve and Pete's Old Dublin and Irish Flake, this peaked my interest. They obviously use quality toby and know what the heck they are doing!

Feel free to add any others that you might know of! Later folks..

They also make the Cup o' Joes "house blends".

Confused here Mike.
Is Kohlhase,Kopp the manufacturer or are they actually distributors?
I still have a problem remembering who actually makes what.

They are the blenders/makers whom produce these blends for the different "brands"....I've even noticed that, like in the case of Wessex, Kolhase, Kopp & Co. make some blends for them but Orlik also makes some Wessex stuff. It's interesting(maybe just to me!) overall...

It's interesting and informative too - as it's surprising how many folks still think that Ogdens make St.Bruno, Murray make Erinmore, Bells - three nuns etc. etc.

Not just you Mike, me too.
Would appear from KK&Co's website that they manufacture some brands and distribute others? For some reason I can't get a decent translation of their site.

Be right handy, (for some of us) to develop a listing of tobacco manufacturers and what brands they actually make.
Googleing for that info left me cross-eyed this morning!

Not really that awfully concerned with who owns what brands so much as where they are actually made. There's food for another thread eh?

As for this particular thread, they make Peterson's blends? Love em'!

A conversation I had with a specific individual who shall remain nameless, indicated that they are a blender...kind of gave me the impression that if they distribute, they are distributing blends they have made...but don't quote me...I lose, on average, about 2 brain cells per second, so my memory...huh...I forget what I was going to say.. ;)

All I know for certain is they do make the Pete blends and they're a German company.

Again with KK&Co as an example, they distribute Sam Gawith blends, but they certainly (?) don't make them.

Almost noon here in the valley, 'bout time to chase a few braincells away (-:

I'm wondering if there are B&M K, K & C.'s where they carry(distribute) other popular brands?! I'm with you OTD...especially this IF, the more I smoke it, the more I love it! Tasty!
