About Toque Snuff Ltd.
Toque Snuff was established in 2006 to promote a modern image of snuff taking amongst a new generation of tobacco snuff users. With a modern menu of interesting and novel flavours made from 100% natural ingredients, Toque Snuff has in a short period of time become established as a quality brand with a worldwide following.
The introduction of smoking bans around the world has led to something of a renaissance in snuff taking and Toque Snuff is at the forefront of this revival. Once the habit of choice for aristocratic Europeans and the working classes alike, more recently snuff has become popular among stylish and educated young people who are aware of the benefits of harm reduction. As a consequence snuff manufacturers predict double-digit growth in demand for years to come and Toque Snuff is leading the way with annual growth in excess of 150%. Issues of health, price and brand innovation have coincided to create a fertile ground for a potentially huge market.
Toque Snuff has utilised the internet to widen the appeal of its snuffs to an ever expanding number of consumers from around the world. Enthusiastic snuff takers like to enjoy a variety of snuff blends, and to satisfy their insatiable appetite for new snuff experiences Toque Snuff has been innovative and inventive. With a range of snuffs, from traditional tobacco aromas to fruits and toasts, florals and menthols and more specialist flavours including peanut butter, whisky and honey, cheese and bacon and chocolate, Toque Snuff enjoys an enviable brand loyalty amongst users. This combined with healthy profit margins makes Toque Snuff an attractive opportunity for distributers and tobacco retailers.
Toque Snuff has become a powerful brand based around quality and freshness with contemporary branding. Originally based in an 18th century merchant's house in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Toque Snuff was stored in cellars cut under the Quay Walls to connect the house to the River Tweed and the bustling docks of that era. The constant temperature and humidity of the cellars were perfect for storing snuff. Sadly quickly outgrowing a wonderful family home and small office, a move to larger premises had to be undertaken. Today Toque snuff is produced from a rambling Georgian Farmhouse with the farm offices handling the day to day running and the Georgian wine cellars and downstairs servants quarters, handling shipping and storage.
