When Alfred Dunhill opened his shop on Duke Street in 1907 it was a tobacco shop.  He was a tobacconist, or as he put it in his first catalog a “Mixture Specialist”,  prominently displaying a sign in his shop window reading: “Tobacco Specialist”.  When he opened the doors that first day, it was not to the type of shop where you or I buy our pipe tobacco, a shop with a wide variety of pre-tinned, vacuum packed tobacco made by any number of manufacturers.  Rather the shop Alfred opened was that of a bespoke blender of tobacco, with each “My Mixture” custom blended for an individual customer
