While debates rage about e-cigs vs. smoking tobacco as nicotine delivery systems, Vintage E-Liquids has something else in mind: e-juice delivery. They invented and patented a new type of container for their e juice: the One-Flick dispenser. As far as they are concerned, their container makes refilling your tank a lot easier and neater. After all: you just need to flick the top once and you’re good to go.
Vintage E-Liquids has also created a collectible product for those who keep containers after they finish the juice inside and display them on the mantelpiece. Labels on certain bottles of e liquid boast interesting, original art works (Gallery, Suicide Bunny, The Standard, and others). Future generations will study these works as a means to understand the culture in which early 21st Century westerners lived and what interested them.
Thematically, Vintage E-Liquids labels resemble tarot cards from an earlier century which will fascinate future historians and antiquarians. Occult imagery is apparent, but with a potential link to circus life and theatrics. See what I mean by viewing their products online. There are 7 flavors, the label for each a mixture of dark and light.
Images of the Dreamer, Lover, Drifter, Sinner, Seeker, Joker, and Legend mostly convey light-heartedness but with dark accents. There is an undercurrent of intensity to contend with and you might be taken by surprise.
The Lover blends papaya, orange, and guava. Seeker is a ripe pear flavor with toasted almond. Peach and pineapple pair up in the Dreamer.
It is unusual to see tobacco styles of e juice from a gourmet company selling a small range of flavors, but Vintage offers two types. Legend blends tobacco with sweet caramel and vanilla. Taste two distinct but complementary styles of mint plus smooth tobacco and an end note of vanilla in The Sinner.
Other firms would refer to The Joker as an orangesicle but Vintage makes no mention of this summer treat. Its composition is similar, but fresher; less like candy and more like cream-topped fruit. Sweet orange and two kinds of cream create a less-sweet impression with the Drifter, a similar juice to the Joker but with custard, tangerine, and a kiss of vanilla.
Buying Vintage E-Liquids
A website for this artisan e juice firm only provides information and a portal for wholesale clients. Contact them or become a distributor. You cannot buy e juices for personal use at their site.
Re-sellers charge about $14 per 15 ml with a range of between 18 mg and zero nicotine. Their flavors come highly recommended, but if you are not familiar with e juice pricing, this is a big number compared to most comparable brands.
You must be paying for the bottle and unless you are aiming to collect all 7 more than once, you will find it difficult to justify paying $14 more than once. Usually, gourmet juice sells for around $12 per 15 ml.

Vintage E-Liquids is another California vaping business. Their offices are located in the Foothill Ranch area of Southern California near Irvine which is between Los Angeles and San Diego.
Some Thoughts on the Juice
It is not uncommon to see an orangesicle-style e juice on the menu. Bat Nectar from Nocturnal Vapes is close: an orange sherbet type but with custard, which means the Drifter is also similar. In the culinary world, pear and almond (The Seeker) are natural together, but e juice companies usually overlook this combo in favor of something else to do with almond or pear: a cookie or amaretto, or pear plus apple, etc.
RY4 e juice is famous as one of the early sweet tobacco styles, and the Legend is reminiscent of that blend. I am going to guess, however, that Vintage E-Liquids takes RY4 to a higher level where caramel, tobacco, and vanilla swirls and separate and generally surprise you with their complexity.
All American by United Vapers provides a comparison if you want to try more than one type of Peach-Pineapple e juice (like Dreamer, possibly the top flavor at Vintage E-Liquids). Most of the time, pineapple is blended with other tropical fruits, is turned into an upside down cake, or makes up part of a creamy cocktail with coconut. Mixologists blend peach with cream much of the time or add it to other fruits. For a light vape juice you can vape all day, The Dreamer is a good choice.
About Vintage E-Liquids
Vintage was started by couple of vapers. Their aim was to innovate without losing sight of quality so they spent two years researching and finally arrived at their 7 flavors plus the bottle design. The two novel things about this company, in summary, are their bottles and the inclusion of 2 tobacco e juices.
It’s not easy to find out what consumers think about Vintage E-Liquids: they must be fairly new and there are few reviews. Packaging alone is likely to garner them a lot of attention; companies pay a lot of attention to this detail knowing customers expect quality to extend as far as the bottle’s label. Good juice is important, but entertaining images also appeal.
