You do not need to rely on imported goods to enjoy good, high-quality nicotine salts within New Zealand.
It is a fundamental concept in economics—where there is a demand, there will be a supply. There is no doubt that New Zealand demands high-quality nicotine salts, so it was a matter of time before local brands started to take over the market.
Big or small, these brands are designed and owned in New Zealand and deliver quality products that answer to the strictest requirements for ingredients, chemicals, production, and packaging.
Vapoureyes NZ cannot be more Kiwi. According to the official website, its production facility is located in the town of Hastings at Hawke's Bay, on the eastern coast of New Zealand's North Island. Which means their products are blended and packaged within the country.
Understanding the growing demand for nicotine salts, Vapoureyes's mixologists and flavourists reformulated their most emblematic blends and released them under the name of VE Salts. Each of the ten flavours available has been conceived with a 50/50 VG/PG ratio and comes in 30 ml bottles with three nicotine strength options—20mg, 35mg, and 50mg.
When it comes to picking a VE Salts' flavour, the choice can be difficult. Many favour Heisenberg, a masterful mix of blueberry and menthol, while others consider Morris the Grape the company's signature product. However, you can always purchase the flavour bundle and explore each blend individually.
2. CRUSH Salts.
CRUSH Salts is the most recent e-liquid brand produced by VAPO, a chain of vaping stores made in and for New Zealand. Designed, blended, and produced within the country, VAPO's teams of experts released six unique flavours designed with the local consumer in mind.
VAPO's CRUSH Salts are made with low strength nicotine concentrations of 10mg and 20mg, making it an excellent pick for casual vapers and flavour chasers. Likewise, they are blended with a 70% VG – 30% PG ratio, which guarantees a smooth throat hit and high vapour production.
Boasting a colourful package and lovely presentation, the flavours of CRUSH Salts match their aesthetics, particularly the strawberry-caramel-vanilla blend of Golden Strawberry or the boba delight that is Pearl Tea.
The Botany Bay Bottling Co are not newcomers to the world of vaping. In fact, this brand is one of the most well-known within the market, and its three flavours are renowned for the quality of their blend.
Originally born in Australia but now blended, packaged, and manufactured in New Zealand, Botany Bay offers three nicotine salt flavour blends with a 75% VG – 25% PG ratio and in a 30ml presentation, as well as providing varying nicotine salt strengths of 20mg, 35mg, and 50mg. All these characteristics make Botany Bay Salts perfectly suitable for a wide range of consumers and an excellent ADV option.
Chocolate enthusiasts would enjoy The Black Cow, a delightful chocolate milkshake with traces of cognac. Consumers seeking a refreshing tropical experience infused with mango and tangerine must try Aam Panna, while Robert Lindsay offers a luxurious sweet tobacco experience.
Self-described as "New Zealand's first and best-reviewed brick and mortar vape store", Vapourium is undoubtedly one of the country's most emblematic vaporiser retailers. Their business started in Dunedin, but their success quickly led to other stores in Nelson, Timaru, and Christchurch.
Vapourium's nicotine salt range is designed to be inclusive—all of them are available in nicotine strengths of 12mg, 25mg, and 40mg, with a perfectly even ratio of 50% PG – 50% VG. In this regard, they offer two lines to consumers: Vapourium Pure Salts and Vapourium Nimbus Salts.
Reckless Salts are a bold proposal straight designed and owned in New Zealand with Nasty eJuice. As a result, this dream team came up with an innovative collection of five blends, all of them inspired by tropical and refreshing flavours designed to delight your senses.
Each of the punky, alternative-inspired flavours comes in nicotine concentrations of 20mg and 35mg and feature a blend of 70% VG – 30% PG to guarantee a low throat hit and a smooth sensation. Reck It Red is by far the most popular flavour due to its sweet combination of sugarbaby watermelon and muskmelon, but Yolo Yellow and Punky Purple are also powerful blends you must try.
