The brand was founded in 1876 by the family patriarch Achille Savinelli Sr. and started out as a store in Milan for smoking accessories (the shop still remains at this location to this day). A hotbed of enthusiasts would exchange all manner of opinions on pipe smoking.
Achilles Savinelli Sr. would expand the business, selling hand crafted pipes from the shop to great reception. These would be designed by Achille Sr. himself and be brought to life by skilled local craftsmen.
By 1890 it was time to hand over the reins to his son Carlo. For the next 50 years he ran the business and was successful in expanding through his great rapport with customers. As before, his son Achille Jr would go on to succeed him and take the company in new directions.
By 1948 he had set up the Savinelli Factory and with a steady supply of quality pipes, went forward and became a global name synonymous with high quality and prestige. Presently Giancarlo Savinelli, son of Achille runs the business. He continues the legacy of his forefathers with a commitment to the same principles as those that came before him.
Savinelli: Aroma | Pipe Tobacco (50g Tin)
Full bodied with sweet aroma of Almonds topped with Bourbon Vanilla flavor. Smooth Black Cavendish, dark Virginias, some broad leaf with a touch of Oriental. A very pleasant fragrance is produced when this tobacco is smoked. Sweet notes of Amaretto are intertwined with a boozy Bourbon Vanilla. The Black Cavendish cools the smoke and slows the burn rate down to a leisurely pace.
Room Note: 1.5
Savinelli: English Mixture | Pipe Tobacco (50g Tin)
A typical English mixture. Classic Virginia is expertly mixed with with 30% Latakia. Bright Burley is added to round up the flavor. Partially granulated, this assures a steady burning. This is just one of the reasons this tobacco is a joy to smoke. The naturally sweet Virginia is perfectly contrasted against smoky Latakia. Bright Burley plays a supporting role that is none the less crucial to the overall experience.
