Manufacturers description – No description available.


This is very light at the moment, there is a slight tonic water taste with a hint of quinine bitterness, I don’t get any effervescence to this.

7 Day steep

This is still light, but the flavour has developed more.

This has a light quinine bitterness to it that slowly builds in strength and peaks at the end of the vape, although still light it definitely makes itself known, there is a very light citrus like taste in the background.

This starts off with a wet mouthfeel that then becomes dry at the end of the vape due to the bitterness, there is also a very slight throat hit from that quinine bitterness that lingers after completing the exhale.

22 Day Steep

No change.

Suggested Usage

Due to how light this is and the way it seems to perform in a vape I’d use as a main note 4%-5%, Background 3%-4%, Accent 2%-3% and standalone at 5%- 8%.

I’d use with Gin and other Alcohols, Sweet fruits this will also be useful to add bitterness to liquids without overpowering the other flavours.

I'd also add a low % of VTA Fizzy Sherbet to this, 0.25%-0.5%, to aid the citrus taste and add a light effervescent effect to this, if you experience that sensation from fizzy sherbet.

The main use will be as a background flavour for example Gin/Vodka and tonic.

VTA Recommend 0.5%-3% in a mix and Standalone 3%-4%
