Exciting New Things

I know, I know, I have really neglected this blog but I vow that I will be better at updating you lovely lot on what's going on and new things we have in store. 

We have expanded our range of craft beers recently.  With exciting things happening on the craft beer scene and the ever evolving trends and brewery collaborations, our range does change frequently.

Hoi Polloi by Alphabet Brewing - Delicious and golden with bags of spicy Saaz hops from aroma and bitterness.

Yeastie Boys Gunnamatta- which utilises judicious amounts of Earl Grey Blue Flower tea to generate an intoxicating floral and citrus aroma with the quenching dry finish of an ice tea. A truly unique new world India Pale Ale with a decidedly old world twist. And really is one of my personal favourites.

Yeastie Boys Big Mouth session IPA-a light and easy drinking Session IPA bursting with juicy sun-kissed South Pacific hops.

Yeastie Boys Digital IPA-defined by its heavy use of late kettle hopping and very restrained use of dry hopping

Wild Beer Co Pogo -a big juicy fruit bomb with a low enough ABV to have a session on. Head brewer, Brett, built the recipe around his favourite tropical fruits: passion fruit, orange, guava and more orange.

Wild Beer Co Bibble -Hopped with beautiful Mosaic hops, helped along with some nice orange-y Amarillo hops the result is a naturally hazy beer, with a moreish bitterness that is complimented by tropical fruit tastiness.

Wild Beer Co Fresh- Every six months Wildbeer source some of the most interesting hops from the northern and southern hemispheres, which means two hop harvests and two excitingly different hop profiles

Island Records Session IPA -bursting with juicy hop aromas with flavours of citrus and tropical fruits, brimming with positive vibrations.

Piston Head Flat Tire-A balanced and rich malt body and a slightly marked bitterness. The American hop variety Centennial and Mosaic gives the brew a fresh hop floral aroma with hints of tropical fruit and citrus

Citrus Tide Dry Hopped Lager- gluten free and benefits from association from the Vegan Society. Chinook and Cascade hops are used and Lager Malt grain and infused with Mediterranean lemons making a refreshing, hoppy, and citrus brew. Suitable also for vegans.

Crazy Mountain Hookibobb IPA -A Colorado approach to the American take of an English classic, using three aggressive, yet floral American hops teamed together to make a bright, citrusy, and floral IPA. A deep caramel malt helps to balance the bitterness of the hops and lets the complex hop bill do its hoppy thing.

There are lots of other great beers to try including some Beavertown favourites, Brewdog beauties, Belgian and American delights!

Caio for now!

Flavoured Smoking

Hello all!

So with the smoking legislations which have been passed and come fully into effect by May 2017, which will see a ban in flavoured cigarettes and tobacco (including menthols!) amongst other things such as plain packaging and larger quantities (35g tobacco and 20 cigarettes) being the minimum.

We have sold lots of packs of flavoured cigarettes in the past including Black Devils, Ziganov Cherry and Vanilla, the Djarum Kretek cigarettes and Tor Oriental and Turkish showing there is a definite market and demand for them.  We also have sold countless quantities of flavoured rolling tobacco which we weigh out.

These, my friends, are imminently a thing of the past.  However, lo and behold, introducing Frizc flavour cards!  I saw them at a trade show recently and thought they were so clever.  They come in various flavours and you insert the flavoured card into your cigarette packet and leave for at least an hour.  Then voila, your cigarettes will all be flavoured!  The cards are food grade and essentially you can flavour anything you choose, including vodka! One card is £1 so not bank breaking.  

For those who like to roll your own flavoured cigarettes, we will be selling the tobacco flavouring by itself so you can spray any brand of tobacco you choose.  Each bottle is £9.99 and lasts a long time as you don't need that much spray for a decent flavour.

Any questions or comments, don't hesitate to ask!

Welcome to The Smoking Jacket

Hello dear chaps and chapettes!

Welcome to our website for our little shop of goodies.  I'd like to introduce myself.  My name is Sonal and I have been running The Smoking Jacket for 4 years now.  We have 2 locations in South West London.  One is in Earls Court and the other is in Gloucester Road.  

The shop is filled from top to bottom with fine wines, boutique spirits, craft beers, cigars (Cuban and New World), pipes, smoking accessories, tobaccos and gift sets.  Think of a candy shop for (discerning) adults.  The sheer range of goods is really quite astonishing (if I do say so myself!).

The shop began in 2011 with my father and I working tirelessly finding beautiful, unique and high quality products and  then rushing to the shop to sell them to our lovely clients! Four years later we have a lovely collection of interesting items and loyal customers who we can call friends.  

Not all of the products we have in store are on the website yet (I am slowly adding them on whilst struggling with my mini open-up studio and iPad for "professional" looking images).  So if you have any questions, please do ring up or email me and I'll be happy to help.  

In the mean time, I shall write about new products, gift ideas and other interesting (or maybe not) bits and bobs I come across.

Cheerio for now!
