The name Rattray’s stands for the highest quality of Scottish smoking culture. Charles Rattray, born in 1880 in Scotland, spent his time training in a stronghold of the tobacco industry, in Dundee, Scotland. Charles made the decision, very early on, to embrace his ideas for tobacco mixtures. In 1903 he opened the House of Rattray in Perth, thus founding one of the largest tobacco companies on the British Isles. Charles Rattray is still a well-known name in the pipe smoking world, his tobaccos are highly rated by connoisseur smokers. Located in Perth, the Rattrays tobacconist not only sold tobaccos, but like most tobacconists blended on site too. His skills with tobacco eventually saw the shop become a blending house in its own right.
