The Peugeot Pepper Mill that Pays Tribute to a Playboy

In response to last week’s email campaign about the growing Housewares section at Wingtip, a good customer alerted us to the fact that the 50cm (19.75″) Peugeot Pepper Mill was referred to as “the Rubirosa.”

If you are unfamiliar with Porfirio Rubirosa, take a minute to read up on him (Wikipedia is always an easy place to start). If you’re intrigued, you can always read more in The Last Playboy: The High Life of Porfirio Rubirosa.

Due to rumors about his natural endowment, the 50cm Peugeot pepper mill was nicknamed “the Rubirosa.” If you’re the type of person that wants a pepper mill that tells a story, there’s really only one choice.
