In 1964, David Berkebile established Georgetown Tobacco in Washington D.C.'s historic hub of commerce. Today, it is still a place to enjoy the camaraderie of those who enjoy the gentle art of smoking and other of life's pleasures. In addition to the finest cigars, pipes and smoking accessories, we strive to stock interesting and unusual items for home and personal use.
Meerschaum is a silicate– a very special mineral composed of compressed, fossilized shells of sea creatures that have developed in the clay, sand, and gravel plains in Eskisehir, Turkey. The craftsmen who carve these pipes are praised for their artistry, which is a traditional craft dating back to the 1600s. As for the quality of the smoke, meerschaum is exceptionally porous, absorbing much of the tar and nicotine from tobacco leaving you with a pure taste and a cool smoke. We hand select each of the meerschaum pipes we carry to ensure quality and craftsmanship.
