What is Naturally Extracted Tobacco E-liquid?
Naturally Extracted Tobacco Process
Drake’s in-house Cold Maceration/Natural Extraction
Naturally extracted tobacco is exactly what it sounds like ground and/or chopped tobacco distilled into either a VG or PG mix. The process retains the pure taste of tobacco in the mixture. Heating can be used to add more flavour or to accelerate the process. Although for the more superior flavour we use a cold process known as Cold Maceration which is famed for being able to preserve the flavourful nuance of traditional leaf tobaccos.
Naturally extracted tobacco (NET) is a type of tobacco that has been processed to extract the natural flavors and aromas of the tobacco plant. This type of tobacco is often used in electronic cigarettes and other vapor products as a way to replicate the experience of smoking traditional tobacco products, such as cigarettes, cigars, and pipes. It is also used in some types of traditional cigarettes.
NET is different from traditional tobacco in that it is not cured or treated with chemicals in the same way as regular tobacco. The process of making NET involves soaking tobacco leaves in a solution of propylene glycol and/or glycerin to extract the flavors and aromas. The solution is then heated to evaporate the solvents, leaving behind a concentrated extract that contains the natural flavors and aromas of the tobacco.
One of the main advantages of NET is that it can provide a more natural and potentially less harsh flavor compared to traditional tobacco products. Many people who switch to vapor products made with NET do so because they believe that the natural flavors are more appealing than the artificial flavors that are often used in traditional tobacco products. In addition, because NET is not treated with the same chemicals as traditional tobacco, it may be less harmful to the user.
Natural Extraction vs Artificial Tobacco Flavourings
Modern technology has tried unsuccessfully to recreate many of the beautiful things that nature gives us for free. We can see an example of this in the failed attempts by many to reproduce authentic natural flavours in e-liquids.
No laboratory-made flavour comes even close to comparing to the rich, complex and full flavour of the real thing.
It is undeniable that if one truly wants to excite their taste buds and all the other senses that come with it, then the natural way will offer them true satisfaction.
Drake’s is based in the vibrant city of London in the United Kingdom. We create all our e-liquids through a natural process to ensure they capture the real essence of the tobacco flavour. The range features a series of e-liquids that are themed around their country of origin, this hints at the products’ exciting flavours.
We do not use any artificial elements in their products, we keep all the ingredients in their pure form.
6-9 Week Cold Maceration Extraction
We use a six-to-eight week cold steeping method using only the finest tobacco varieties,
sourced from some of the best tobacco farmers in the world.
During the production process, absolutely no artificial flavours are added to the leaves.
This allows the tobacco to develop its natural flavour and aroma completely.
Essentially each leaf is allowed to retain and mature its own signature flavour note.
The juices are available in mix ratios of 50:50 and also in nicotine concentrations of 18 mg, 12 mg, 6 mg, 3 mg, and 0 mg,
With the above in mind, it’s worth noting that Drakes’s tobacco passes through a thorough lab screening process to ensure it is free of any harmful content. These include substances such as Diacetyl and Acetyl Propionyl.
Filtration to 3 microns
In our new lab in Lincolnshire UK, we filter down to 3 microns to ensure the final concentrate is as pure as possible
This guarantees that the finished product is in its purest form
