Tested @ 2% Diluted in 70/30 0 Nicotine

Tested on an RX200s with a Bonza 0.14 ohm dual coil Flaptons @ 130w. Manufacturers description – No description available


At the moment this is just heavy Juniper berry top notes, with an unmistakable Gin flavour, this has very little throat hit

7 Day steep

The Juniper berries have now become more balanced and the Botanicals have started to come out more. This starts with a pleasant Juniper Berry providing the top notes, then the botanicals fill in the mid notes, as part of the botanicals I get a pleasant very slight floral almost woody taste, the bottom notes are provided by a blend of herbs and that unmistakable dry Gin taste, at this % this wouldn’t quite count a single measure of Gin, there is a very mild throat hit accompanying that Gin taste.

20 Day Steep

No change.

Suggested Usage

I’d use as a main note 3%-5%, Background 2%-3%, Accent 1%-2% and standalone at 5%- 4% +.

I’d only use 5% against stronger concentrates or where you would like a stronger Gin taste coming through, I believe this would be equivalent to a double measure of Gin, at 3% the Gin should just start punching through against light-moderate flavours, this should make itself known without being an overwhelming flavour.

I’d use with Fruits, Florals, Cucumber, Light Creams, Chocolates, Tonic Water, Bergamot, Bitters, other Alcohols such as Champagnes and Brandy.

Use with Herbs such as Rosemary, Basil, Nutmeg and Cardamom.

Citrus flavours will work well to emphasize the Juniper Berries and add a little ‘sour’ to the Gin.

VTA Recommend 0.5%-4% in a mix and Standalone 5%-7%
