Welcome to the world of Peterson craftsmanship, where elegance and dedication to quality go hand in hand.
Armed with an imaginative flair for Pipes and a craftsman’s background, Charles Peterson had a simple idea; to make a better pipe.
Inspired by this singular vision, he created the Peterson ‘System’ pipe and from humble origins in 1865 to today, it remains synonymous with our name.
Together with the brothers George & Fredrick Kapp, they pioneered a new standard for Pipes and so began the evolution of Peterson.
The first Peterson patents awarded to us in the 1890’s would revolutionize the pipe-making world and turn a fledgling idea into what has become the oldest continuously operating pipe-marker in the world.
Living Our Heritage
Today each new step in our journey is underpinned by a dedicated team of 17 craftspeople. They are the guardians of the skills and traditions pioneered by our founders, allowing us to live our heritage.
True Irish Craftsmanship
From our home in Dublin, Ireland we’re guided by this heritage and inspired by the culture and creativity which imbues our island. Old Dublin, Killarney, and Donegal Rocky, are some of the many pipe creations stirred by the character of our surroundings.
While our System pipes, silver work and Peterson-Lip mouthpieces are ever present, we believe our creation of classic shapes and timeless finishes is what has helped contributed to our sustainability.
