Welcome to the latest Edition of my Catalogue, packed with all your favourite Carey and Guest Brand Pipes, Accessories and Tobaccos including some newcomers – the Aldo Velani Soave now available in mid-brown (p17), the Chacom Carat (p19), and an innovative smokeless product called Nicoccino (p30/31). We have also found a limited stock of Meerschaum pipes – two new ones and two that we have offered before, on page 18. Once they’re gone that’s it so be quick!

As some of you may know from the activity on our Website, Facebook page and Twitter we have once again been invited to support the efforts of one of our customers, Mark Langridge, and his colleagues, Mark Wood and Paul Vicary, who will soon be attempting to trek from Russia to the North Pole without a re-supply. The specialist British three-man team will attempt a 60 day crossing from the Arctic Cape, across the Arctic Ocean to the Geographic North Pole. Due to the profound effects of climate change, this high-profile expedition to cross one of the most unforgiving areas of the planet is likely to be one of the last of its kind. For more on this and to support their journey, see our website.
Now on a more serious note, a word about Tobacco… changes are afoot I’m afraid. The new EU Directive will have an impact on our range, resulting in the following Carey Private Blends being discontinued – 2006 Black Aromatic, 2024 Ready Rubbed No. 7, 2026 Broad Cut English Mixture, and 2031 Spritzer. These will run out soon so stock up now, meanwhile we will offer the next best choice for those with regular orders, but feel free to contact us to make any changes you like.
With the inevitable increase in Tobacco Duty to be announced before the next Catalogue there’s no time like the present to join our Tobacco Club – why not ask for an Invitation pack, or tick the box on your order form at the back of this catalogue. There’s more info about the benefits it brings, including a FREE pouch, on page 3. Despite all these distractions we are still concentrating on doing what we do best – making quality pipes and tobacco and providing a customer service experience to match – I hope you all agree.
