Butz Choquin Briar Pipe Collection
Butz Choquin was founded in 1858 by Gustave Butz and Jean-Baptiste Choquin in Metz, France. Choquin, a tobacconist had a prosperous business and employed Butz who later became his son-in-law. It was Gustave Butz who in 1858, the same year of his marriage, built the factory to manufacture the famous Choquin pipe. Over the years Butz-Choquin has expanded its range and relocated to Saint-Claude, once known as "the world capital of the briar pipe". Today we enjoy some of the finest pipes from this forward thinking company.
