    When we started the site we wanted to offer a low cost but tasty brand and decided to go with Liqua over the other mass produced brands, flavour overall seemed to be decent and fairly accurate and they offered the basics of fruit medley's, reasonable tobacco and single flavour fruits which are quite popular. As we have grown though our focus has shifted more towards UK made in the e-liquid range and so when the current Liqua stock runs out we will not be re-stocking it - this leaves us with a gap in our stock range.

    T-Juice are our bought in premium range and WizMix are a good low cost option but the flavours we stock are limited as (personally) I do not find the range to be that equal. Some are great and others a much less so - we don't want to offer average flavours :)

    Colonel Boom is (technically) a seperate entity to PlumeBlu but enough of you know that it is our own premium range that we want to build and develop more for wholesale a bit further down the line, with this in mind it is marketed seperately and branded as it's own company.

    Plume Eliquid is forthcoming and is going to be our very own in-house brand to replace the lower cost Liqua range, made in the same way as Colonel Boom's liquids and with the same eye for flavours we are looking at more primary ingredients, single fruits and blends of perhaps only two flavours instead of the 9 we have in BlackPowder. The base will be different too, we are finalising whether to go with 50/50 and 60PG/40VG which, in turn, will help us reduce the flavouring amount needed by around a third (and this will be what drives the cost down a little too)

    Our specialist. complex blends will be kept to Colonel Boom, more basic, staple flavours will be offered under the new brand which we hope will have the first 5-6 flavours available in a few weeks.

    Thanks bud! It's all still a work in progress but a shift in the direction at least towards selling 100% UK made liquids across the entire range

    Just as an addition, are there any fruit flavours that people cannot find or would like including? Not guaranteeing anything of course but there may be the odd flavour we have overlooked for a bit of trialling :)

    Ooooh, looking forward to this!!

    Will they be pre-steeped ready to vape or will they need to be stepped 7/14 days on delivery?

    As with the Colonel Boom range Sassy, these will be pre-steeped and ready to vape - it is a pet hate of mine that some brands touted as premium are made the day/day before dispatch and expect you to steep for a week. Not a dig at them though, I just know that when a customer buys a juice the chances are they want to use it :)

    I expect that the balancing act between stocking may be a little off in the beginning as it is with Colonel Boom's (running out of HeartShot already and it's only been a week since the last batch). The important thing though I think is to make sure the flavours are good in the first place and build organically.

    Hopefully, come VapeFest we will have a decent range in Colonel Boom's and Plume Eliquids to have out on a table

    Great stuff! I must admit I *hate* having to wait a week or more to try out a juice I've ordered!
