Robert Lewis, founded in 1787, is the
longest established tobacco merchant in London and one of the oldest in the world.
Christopher Lewis, a Welshman, originally started his retail tobacconist business at 14
Long Acre in Covent Garden. Robert Lewis, a relative of Christopher Lewis, later became
the administrator of the firm. As the buiness flourished, the firm moved several times and
finally located at 19 St. James's Street, where it is trading today. In 1997, Robert Lewis
received a Royal Warrant of Appointment to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.
We are very proud to introduce the Robert Lewis "Special Tobacco Blends". Until now, these fine tobaccos were sold exclusively at the Robert Lewis shop on St. James's Street. The wonderful mixtures are the finest available and are expertly blended from only the very best tobaccos. We thank you for looking, and if you have not tried Robert Lewis tobaccos, try them now as we are confident that you will experience total enjoyment as many have for over a century.
