McChrystals, founded in 1926 by Irish immigrant Denis McChrystal. As an employee at a wholesale tobacconists he took note of the popularity of snuff, eventually deciding to turn his hand to blending his own recipes. From these humble beginnings in his garden shed, Denis would go on to create one of the most beloved snuff brands in Britain. The family are still in control of the business. They continue his legacy with a catalogue of great snuffs.

Gourmand snuff is the term for snuffs that are flavoured with the essences of foods, drinks and desserts. Some examples would be fruits, alcohol, chocolate, mint, spices, although the options are endless.

By the 18th century snuff tobacco use was widespread through all sections of society. Rich and poor, male and female, snuff was an everyday part of British culture. Many prominent figures were snuff fanatics such as George IV, Charles Darwin and Napoleon along with modern celebrities such as science fiction author Philip K. Dick, actor Sean Bean and comedian Stephen Fry.

    I found this one had a Major kick to it. Strong stuff. I guess if you want potency and that “enlivening” experience, this one would definitely rate highly. But personally not one of my first choices when I dip into my selection of tins. Has it’s merits though

    I’m fairly new to snuffs. (trying to kick cigarettes)
    It is nice and fine and I like the aroma. It certainly clears your head. I like it very much!
