An incredible gift enabling people to enjoy the scent of a traditional turf fire wherever they might be around the world!
Turf/Peat Incense is manufactured by a family run Business in Co. Tipperary in Ireland for the past 18 years. John O Brien, and Joannes Berkery created the product after living in Boston for a number of years and experiencing how the smell of turf would transport them right back to Ireland and make them homesick. So the idea was born!! A specifically designed Turf/Peat incense and burner with either a small ceramic pub or cottage with the smoke coming out of the chimney.
After returning home John & Joannes set up a business partnership in 1990. Business studies, planning and economics were studied at length. However the biggest challenge was the manufacturing of the incense sod.
John and his father Paddy O’ Brien developed the process of converting this unique, natural component into incense. Irish Turf Incense was introduced to the Irish market in Jan 1994 on a national TV show: The Late Late Show (then hosted by Gay Byrne) and was hailed as one of the great innovative products of the year.
Joannes says “it is remarkable to witness how this small company manufacturing Turf/peat Incense, has withstood all the economic upheavals of the past decade. People worldwide love the scent of a turf fire. It brings them back to their roots and keeps them grounded in theses uncertain times”.
