Dunhill only uses AA briar — the world’s best and a factor for its price tag. Each pipe goes through 80 rigorous inspections before they are placed on the market.

Founded in 1865 in Ireland, between Charles Peterson and the Kapp brothers (Friedrich and Henrich). Peterson is a popular pipe because of its renown “Standard System” introduced in 1890. The “system” pipe smokes cool and dry because a well at the bottom of the shank absorbs the moisture released by the tobacco and the smoker’s saliva. The stem is adapted so that it contours the lips and teeth plus the opening at the top ensures that the smoker will not suffer the bite-tongue effect.

In 1919 the Ceresas acquired an area of land on Via Visconti in Cassano Magnago where a new factory was built. All business activities were united in the new rooms. Since the complete factory was operated electrically, the firm received the new name Gerolamo Ceresa – Fabbrica elettrica pipe. “Electric pipe factory” sounds a bit amusing today, but at that time it was certainly the proud expression of modernity! To bring forward the company furthermore on the European markets, Enrico went to Saint-Claude in 1923 for some years to study the fabrication procedures of the French manufacturers. Returned to Italy in 1926, he extensively restructured and modernised the firm. A new name was coined: Fabbrica Pipe Cassano. The order fabrication for Rossi was continued, but from now on also own pipes under the brand name Cassano were offered with increasing success. The Ceresas were among the very first who strove to sell Italian made pipes with a quality above the abundantly produced industry ware.
Molina pipes has it’s origins in Barasso in Lombardy.it was born from what was left of the once glorious Rossi pipes, an old trade name of an ancient and unquestionable famous international pipe company in the early 1900s.
Molina still lies in part on the antique Rossi factory,a percular but not a casual circumstance. it represents an excellent example of industrial archeology. its working environment is enriched with the modernised charm of the past.
Molina’s enheritance from Rossi pipes does not only consist of the factory but also of ancient machinery and methods of production, antique ”secretes”,antique recepts and production proceedures used over 100 years ago.
The name molina has even a longer history,it is upto today used to refer to a district where you could find mills powered by a rush of water.
Harcastle was founded in 1908 by Edmund Hardcastle and built itself a good reputation among the numerous British mid-graders. In 1935 Dunhill started to build a factory next door to Hardcastle in Forest Road, Walthamstow, London E17. The family owned Hardcastle Pipes Limited sold 49% of its equity to Dunhill In 1936.
Along with closing down it’s pipe factory in Notting Hill in 1946 Dunhill bought the reing shares turning Hardcastle into a 100% Dunhill subsidiary. As members of the Hardcastle family continued as executives in the company’s management Hardcastle retained a certain independence.
This ended in 1967. Dunhill merged Hardcastle with Parker (100% Dunhill as well). The new Parker Hardcastle Limited also absorbed the former Masta Patent Pipe Company. Hardcastle’s Forest Road plant was immediately given up and the production of Hardcastle pipes was shifted to Parker’s nearby St. Andrews Road factory – now consequently called Parker-Hardcastle factory.
