Menthol Cigarette Ban UK 2020

Why are menthol cigarettes being banned?

Menthol cigarettes are being banned due to the new EU Tobacco Product Directive laws being passed. It is part of a movement to help deter young people from picking up the bad habit through menthol flavoured cigarettes. Although it is an EU law, it has come into effect in the UK regardless of the United Kingdoms departure of the European Union.

When did the ban come into force?

The new law has been in effect since 20th May 2020.

Are menthol e-liquids being banned too?

No. Thankfully for the vaping industry, the new law does not include menthol e-liquid and vaping devices. 

What alternatives are there?

There are plenty menthol alternatives available through electronic cigarettes. We have found that over the years of helping people make the switch from cigarettes to vaping, the flavour of the liquid is one of the biggest factors when putting down the cigarettes. This is why we have increased of flavour menu to over 150 different flavours.

Heres a list of our menthol flavours:

  • Menthol
  • Double Menthol
  • Spearmint
  • Mint Blast
  • Peppermint
  • Strawberry Menthol
  • Black Ice
  • Blueberry Ice
  • Blueberry Spearmint
  • Citrus Ice
  • Mango Ice
  • Cherry Menthol

Of course, we sell many different flavours such as desserts, fruits, tobacco flavours, coffee, aniseed etc etc. We also stock a number of different brands who themselves also offer a lot of flavours including menthol.

We hold a lot of different vaping devices which vary in size, design, settings, and colour to help find the perfect device to cater for your needs.
