Zap Juice Intro
Today I am going to be taking a look at some eliquids from a UK company called Zap Juice. Zap offer premium quality juices at affordable prices. A relatively new company with three liquids to choose from including Vintage Cola, Lychee Lemonade and Purple Slushie I was excited to try the flavours hoping that Zap could make a name for themselves and really put the UK out there in terms of premium eliquid brands.
Zap state that their liquids are made using the highest grade PG, VG, Nicotine and flavour concentrates available and all liquids are mixed in an above standard clean room at their base in Manchester.

The e-liquids Zap offer all come in 20 mL bottles with dropper caps and retail for £9.99 each. Which in my experience is just below average for premium quality eliquids.
Zap juices are only available in a 70/30 VG/PG mix and in 3 mg nicotine strength.
I received for free the Vintage Cola, Lychee Lemonade and Purple Slushie to taste test. They all came in a fantastic wooden presentation box with a list of flavours that Zap offer, a few stickers, and 4 coloured drip tips to use with any standard 510 drip tip adapter.
Zap have clearly taken the time and effort to present their juices well and this has really rubbed off on me. I’m a sucker for advertising and good presentation!
Our Testing Setup
To test the juices I decided to use one of my favourite set ups. My Limitless mechanical mod topped off with my Kennedy V2. I feel that juices give their best flavour with an RDA, and with the Kennedy being one of my personal favourites for both clouds and flavour, I thought this would be the best atomiser to use.
I understand the raw power of the mechanical mod may not be for everyone, however this is how I get my best vape. And frankly, if the eliquid can handle the power of a great mechanical mod and rda combo, it’ll taste good in just about any set up there is!
Our E-Liquid Review
Description: ”Experience the tangy zest of lemonade evolving into an exotic, sweet lychee. Beautifully balanced like a gymnast on the beam.”
This was my favourite flavour from the Zap range. The liquid is fantastic and tastes exactly as described. The real citrusy lemon comes straight through as soon as you take a hit which seemingly morphs into the sweet lychee by the exhale with an ever so slight hint of lemon on the undertone.
This is a flavour that can go one of 2 ways for me. Either perfectly right, or terribly wrong. Zap have done a fantastic job of ensuring this is perfectly right
Something also to note is the smoothness of this liquid. For a 70/30 blend I thought it may be a touch harsh but this was fantastically smooth.
Description: “Inhale for the cool and breezy ice zap; exhale for the burst of indulgent grape.”
I was really excited for this flavour as I am a big fan of of slush flavours, I love my berries and fruits with a hint of menthol.
The liquid is nice, taste is good and cloud production is great too. Although I feel the grape could be a little more intense. I found it got overpowered by the coolness of the liquid and it was almost like ice with a hint of grape rather than grape with a hint of ice.
Description: “Like a barbershop quartet, four flavours combine in marvelous harmony, for a classic experience you won’t forget!”
This juice really got my hyped! I imagined this to be reminiscent of those huge cola bottles you’d buy from the sweet shop that tasted nothing like Cola, but still so good at the same time! I couldn’t wait to try this juice.
The flavours did take me by surprise, there was an almost fizzy experience on the inhale. I can’t quite put my finger on it but it was definitely something different. And on the exhale this was just like real full flavoured coca cola!
Whilst it was a shame it didn’t take me back to the days staring through the glass at all the sweets I could possibly choose from for a few pence, the flavour profile is absolutely on point. Not an all day vape for me, but perfect as a one off on a hot summers day! (Not that we actually have any of those over here in the UK!)
The packaging is fantastic, Great presentation of the liquids with something new and not really seen before in the liquid industry in the UK. They even sent me a free T-Shirt which is epic!
The flavour profiles are fantastic, all as described and leave almost nothing to be desired. The only thing I would change is a slight more intensity on the grape within the purple slush
Unfortunately there is only one nicotine option of 3 mg. Whilst a lot of vapers use 3 mg it would be nice to see 0 mg, 6 mg and possibly higher options to cater for all vapers.
I tend to vape 0 mg so using 3 mg can be a little tickly for me. Thankfully it wasn’t the case with these liquids although I’d love to see a 0 mg option.
My only other con is the size of the bottles. 20 mL just simply isn’t enough! These liquids are so great I’d happily buy 50 or even 100 mL of them! So I’d like to see Zap branch out and offer larger bottles sometime in the future.
These liquids are absolutely brilliant. I really hope Zap get the exposure they deserve and can start to put UK premium liquids on the map in a global scale! Brilliant flavours, a fantastic smoothness to the liquids and cloud production is great too.
I know we don’t normally mention vapour production within an eliquid review but for you guys that like to chase clouds, these liquids won’t let you down on that front.
Overall I think these liquids are fantastic and as soon as I’m finished with my current stash I will most certainly be ordering some more!
