BIG NEWS ABOUT OUR NYPC TOBACCO BLENDS!!!

The New York Pipe Club’s collection of pipe tobaccos reflects the historic and vibrant character of our City. The NY Pipe Club's" NY State of Mind Collection" of fine tinned pipe tobaccos are back on the shelves and available for sale at http://www.pipesandcigars.com/brands/1736/new-york-pipe-club-blends/?type=Pipe+Tobacco

See the PHOTOS section for photos of our new tins!
 

Just a quick word to let you know that all four of our storied blends ARE back in business and, at the time of this posting, re-stocked and available for sale at NYPC Tobacco Blends at http://www.pipesandcigars.com/brands/1736/new-york-pipe-club-blends/?type=Pipe+Tobacco. As many of you know, if you have attempted to order at least two of our wonderful NYPC Tinned Tobacco Blends from pipesandcigars.com in the last 9 months or more you would have found that they have been continually out of stock which was cause for much frustration. Our dear friend and master blender of our tinned tobaccos, Russ Oulette, has worked very hard to meet the demand for the blends however, due to his new role and ever expanding responsibilities with pipesandcigars.com, it became increasingly difficult for him to sufficiently meet that demand and supplies have suffered. This is especially true of the two pressed Virginia blends which are the most time consuming to produce.

After some valuable input, advice and suggestions from many of our own NYPC members, upon having opportunity to sample the Sutliff versions, Russ has communicated our recommended adjustments to Sutliff and as a result, 192 tins of each blend were produced. The resulting inventory is now back on the shelves of www.pipesandcigars.com!!!

With Sutliff driving production, we can be now assured that our blends will be continuously available. It will also help keep the royalties coming in to help fund club activities and tobacco tastings.

Our own Dan Silverstone, creator of our beautiful tin labels, has worked with Russ to convert our tin labels to fit the new tin format. On that note, we are also exploring the possibility of having our blends tinned in the popular round Euro-style tins. Stay tuned for more info on that as the story develops!

We are also in discussion about having our blends be made available via other internet tobacco sales sources besides pipesandcigars.com, which would open up sales to a greater degree. And finally, we are also discussing having our blends be made available in bulk form.

I am positive all this will work out perfectly for us, as it has for many of Russ' own blends, as well as other Pipe Club's and their tinned blends, which he created and are now produced by Sutliff. This solution will enable Russ, via Sutliff, to supply the demand for our wonderful NYPC tinned blends on a continuous basis.

Again to reiterate, most importantly to me in all of this is that, like Russ’ blends, our own NYPC Blends, will be made to Russ’ exacting specifications in every way. That means using the exact same leaf quality, production processes and strict adherence to the recipes that we as a club, along with Russ, have worked so hard to achieve over a number of years. The only noticeable changes will be the tins (containers themselves - and some great news regarding them will be revealed soon - like utilizing the round Euro-style vacuum sealed tins -) and the thickness of the cake slices, as they (Sutliff) have the capacity to cut them thinner for easier prep – which is a good thing in my opinion.

And, remember at some point in the future, with Sutliff driving production, we can consider expanding our NYPC "NY State of Mind Collection" series to new and interesting blends yet to come! I am sure that we will be satisfied with the Sutliff versions and I look forward to seeing them back on the shelves and in a briar, meerschaum or corn cob bowl near you!!!
