Ever wondered exactly what goes into each Lord Cogingtons juice and exactly how they’re made, from flavour idea to shipping them out?
This page will describe the exact process followed for every bottle
What is in each bottle?
Quite simply, there are 3 ingredients in each bottle:
1. Flavour. Each bottle contains 17% of flavour, with a PG base. Each flavouring has been carefully selected, using flavourings that contain no Diacetyl or Acetyl.
2. PG. Each bottle contains 13% of propylene glycol. This is a base mix used in the majority of vape juices
3. VG. Each bottle contains 70% of vegetable glycerin. Again a base mix that is used in the majority of vape juices.
As you can see, from these ingredients, the VG to PG ratio in all bottles are 70/30 VG/PG.
All juices are 0mg nicotine
Absolutely no addatives, flavour enhancer or sweetners have been added to the juices. By doing the juices without these, you can be ensured that the juices are kinder to your coils and the bottles have been correctly steeped, to bring out the flavours in the best way, as you will read below
Steeping and bottling
Each bottle goes through a 3 steep process:
As some of the flavours are made from mixing a number of different base flavours together, it is important that these flavours are equally mixed, to ensure each bottle contains the perfect amount of each individual flavour.
This is done by hand measuring the different base flavours, then adding them together in 1ltr mixing bottles. These are then shaken and left to mix and steep for a minimum of 2 weeks. These are checked and shaken every 2 days, to assist with the mixing process.
By doing this stage, each drop of overall flavour will contain the perfect mix and amount of the individual flavours.
Making and steeping the juice
Once the flavour has mixed and steeped correctly, they are then added the the VG and PG bases.
The VG and PG are not previously mixed priot to this stage.
The flavour, VG and PG are again hand measured, using measuring tubes and syringes, to ensure each mix has the perfect amount of each ingredient.
These are mixed and added to steeping bottles. The bottles are stored in blacked out boxes, which are labelled with the date they were added. This is so they are left in there for the required steeping time. Again these are checked every 2 days and they are shaken by hand, to assist with the steeping process.
Once the batches have steeped and they have been tested, then are then decanted into the bottles. Once they have all been decanted and labelled, they are then stored in boxes again and left in there for 2 more weeks. This allows the bottles a further steeping time, before they are brought and arrive with you.
New flavours, from idea to your tank
How is it decided which flavours are released?
Firstly there are a couple of things to think about
Flavours: What flavours will work together and produce a nice mix?
Market research: What types of flavour are popular and also are there any mixes that will stand out in the vast flavour market
Current flavours: Trying to keep a good range of flavours, across a number of different flavour profiles, fruity, desert etc, is it important to make sure a good balance of these is kept.
Once these have been looked at and ideas have been brought forward, these ideas are added to a board, with what base flavours can make up the flavours in the best way.
Once a flavour profile idea is created and ingredients are decided, a number of different batches are created. For example Very Bery is created with a number of different berry bases. In order to get the best mix of these, a number of different blends are created.
Once the different ratio batches are fully steeped, these are all tested in 10ml bottles. Notes and scores are taken, then the best ratio mix moves onto the next round
Final decision for release:
Once there is only the one of each flavour left, these are then sent out in 10ml samples to testers, reviewers and retailers. Again, notes and scores are collated and the best 3 flavours are selected.
Although no extra sweetners or anything else is added to the flavours, it is felt that is is extremley important to carry out this test. All juices are put to this test before release.
120ml of 3mg nicotine strength juice are vaped, using the same coil and cotton throughout the process. Following on from the test, the cotton and coils are checked, to ensure that they are not overly discoloured.
Should any of the juices overly discolour the cotton at any stage, the juice is not released and another the next flavour is tested.
Juices that don’t make it:
Doing this process will result in flavours that don’t get released, but fear not. Unless these really don’t work, the flavours are added to a backlog board. Using comments and notes taken from throughout the process, these flavours are continually worked on and are improved where possible. They then get added to the next release bundle, if it is felt they are ready and potentially released at a later date, even better than what they would of originally been
