In April 2013 we decided to make a fundamental shift regarding all of our products.
Like almost every other retailer and certainly other electronic cigarette companies, most of our products were sourced in China. After the horse meat scandal threw into stark relief the damaging effects of substandard ingredients, we took a long hard look at our production chain.
In order to guarantee the best product for our customers, we decided to source all of our e-Liquids (flavours) right here in the UK. This was not the easiest path for us to take - it’s incredibly expensive, a logistical nightmare and time consuming but it has allowed us to tightly control our ingredients. Our commitment to making the best electronic cigarette possible means we felt we had to take this course of action.
So, from the 1st of May 2013 all of our new products will contain e-liquids made from ingredients sourced from within the EU and then manufactured here in the UK. All the liquids are also independently audited and tested by ECITA, the UK electronic cigarette trade association.
This quality is apparent in the taste of our new SMOKO electronic cigarettes.
As a result of the increased production costs, you’ll notice a slight price increase in our five-pack cartridges from £12 to £14. For a limited time, we will be offering our old product via telephone orders only, please call +44 (0) 208 9200 454.
We care about you – our customers – and we care about what goes into our products. So for the thousands of our existing customers – enjoy! For new customers looking to switch to e-cigarettes, remember your body is a temple – expect, no, demand the best!
