Two very special shops - located in the heart of Old Town Alexandria

John Crouch Tobacconist and The Scottish Merchant (both in the same shop) embody the essence of not just Alexandria, but all of Virginia as well. After all, Alexandria was founded by Scots, and Tobacco is Virginia’s oldest industry. 

Even today, The Masonic Temple, Ramsey Alley, and Cameron Street serve as reminders of Alexandria’s proud Scottish heritage. 

Years ago, Tobacco was believed to have medical properties and a Tobacconist was consulted in much of the same way that a pharmacist is today. In those days, a Tobacconist would create a blend of tobacco products to ease an ailment.

John Crouch Tobacconist and The Scottish Merchant has been home to the Washington Areas’ nicest and largest humidor for over 30 years



Family Owned For Over 30 Years

Dan Geller has owned John Crouch Tobacconist for more than 30 years. His wife’s father smoked a pipe and somehow or another Dan ended up starting an import business. Dan moved the tobacco shop from across King Street a few years back and found an opportunity to combine his business with the Scottish Merchant that was already there. He found that the two businesses complimented each other nicely and the rest is history.
