Germains are renowned for their straight undressed Pipe Tobacco’s but they do have a few aromatics under their belts and the Plum Cake is a true classic. This is a traditional pipe mixture of which is prepared from six different types of Virginia leaf. The remaining mixture is a specially prepared black tobacco made from the air-cured leaf. This is possibly the only British made tobacco containing this particular ingredient. The flavouring comes from natural plum and blackcurrant extracts, providing a unique added flavour giving an agreeable taste and pleasant aroma.
