Cornell & Diehl

Cornell & Diehl is a pipe tobacco manufacturing company that specializes in blending the finest smoking tobaccos the old-fashioned way – in small batches, by hand. They currently manufacture some of the world’s most popular pipe tobacco blends, including those created by G.L. Pease.
