The Kendal Shag Tobacco is made by Gawith Hoggarth in the heart of the lake district in the true British spirit. Made from 100% bright virginia leaf. Very mild with a refreshing menthol flavour. The finest tobacco leaves are sourced from the finest tobacco producing nations before being blended and prepared in the Kendal Tobacco factory. n nThe use of Shag Tobacco: nDue to some hand rolling smokers using shag tobacco for hand rolling purposes, HMRC have taken action to stop this abuse of the tobacco taxation. HMRC have defined that any tobacco where the strands are less than 1.5mm will be taxed as a Hand Rolling tobacco. All shag tobacco produced as of January 2011 will be cut above 1.5mm. This is a pipe tobacco and is taxed accordingly. It is a criminal offence to use shag tobacco for hand rolling and we at Havana House do not endorse this.
