Long Term Storage

Hello snuff community,

I have quite a few tap boxes and a couple tins as well. With more on the way soon. I have double bagged the same ones with each other and then put them in mason jars, then into my fridge at about 10 or 12 degrees Celsius. I do not put food in this fridge only tobacco products.

Will this keep everything fresh and enjoyable even after a long time stored in these conditions?

How long can I expect my snuff to keep?

Lastly, is there a better way to store long term than my current approach?

Let me know what you think.

Thanks community,


  • I would say to try different methods and see what works for you. I keep my tins in original packaging. Then I place in an ice chest to keep light and air away. I typically keep out what I am trying and even that is in a tin to keep out of the breeze of the ceiling fan.
  • Thanks for the input.
  • Also keep in mind that moist snuffs can corrode the tins from inside....
    The best material for long term storage I think,is glass.
  • Ok, interesting insight. Thank you.
  • @tobaccobob have you had any blends that have had a metallic aroma due to long term storage?
  • It's not just a matter of aroma....I have found rust inside the tins!
    For example snuffs like F&T Santo Domingo,WoS Best Dark,SG Kendal Brown etc...won't last very long in their original tins(maybe a couple of months is ok but for longer time better decant them in glass jars).
    At least that's my personal experience.

    My storage method is to put electrical tape on 20 gram tins. Then, with bulk snuff, add sliced, washed carrots, about 1/4” thick, just a few. Yesterday I found an old 100 gram tub of De Kralingse Peppermunt and one of St Omer. Both dry as the desert. I put two of the aforementioned carrot slices in each, this morning both were refreshed to almost their original moisture and scent. Works every time for me. I used to put the bulks in baby food jars, but it just became too much of a production for me in my old age! Simple is best imo.
  • I've used carrot or potato, ye olde tonquin seed works well when soaked prior to use, but your snuff will be scented with it obviously! ;-) :))
  • I mostly have tap boxes. I like them a lot. However I am waiting on an order of Poschl's "Schmalzler Brazil A" 100 gram pouch.

    I think I'll put some in a used and rinced out round tin. Then I will put the pouch into a plastic zip bag and into my tobacco fridge to keep it fresh.
