Get Ready for the UK Menthol Ban of 2020

As you probably already know, from 20th May 2020 there will be a ban placed on Mentholated ‘Menthol’ cigarettes, filters and menthol tobacco in the UK. The European Union Revised Tobacco Products Directive (2014/40/EU) will make it a legal offence for manufacturers to produce these products, and for retailers to sell them to their customers. 

The menthol ban is designed to reduce the appeal of smoking, particularly amongst younger people who might look to use menthol cigarettes before moving onto the harsher taste of traditional tobacco. But what about the many adults that prefer a mintier alternative to smoking menthol tobacco?

The Menthol Cigarette Ban, how will it affect you?

Of course, if you purchase these products, you will find it almost impossible to find legitimate retailers who offer these menthol products, as selling them will become illegal from the 20th May.

If you’re reading this and wondering how you’ll get your mentholated nicotine fix – wonder no more! We love our minty flavours here at LiQuid and have a whole host of flavours that might help you out.

If you’re reading this and you’ve still not yet made the switch to vaping – what are you waiting for? The menthol ban is the perfect time to ditch the cigarettes, without missing out on that minty taste.

Where to start? The LiQuid Pro device is what you need! Our flagship vape device with revolutionary coil technology and effortless design is the perfect e-cigarette to get you started on your vaping journey. Now, what to fill it with?


Are there e-liquids I can use that are just like a menthol cigarette?

If you want a straight replacement for those menthol cigarettes, this is one of the best places to start. The team in the lab spent a long time combining ingredients to create a range of Real Tobacco flavours that mimic the taste of tobacco. In fact, not just the taste, but the experience of smoking too, as closely as we can. We’ve even perfected the aroma of cigarettes, which can be quite a shock for recently ex-smokers.

Not for the faint-hearted, but if you want the perfect transition, here it is! Our MBO Green nic salt e-liquid combines our Real Tobacco experience with fresh menthol flavour, creating a strong contender for your menthol alternative.

What e-liquids can I find that taste like my tobacco?

If you’re looking for a flavour that is perhaps a bit friendlier on the palate, our tried-and-true tobacco formulations have always been incredibly popular with LiQuid customers. Everyone has “their brand” of smokes, and we’ve crafted 4 great tobacco flavours that replicate the subtle differences in taste between the big tobacco brands. They might not like us to name them though…

If you’re looking for something a little different, why not try RY4, which combines tobacco with subtly sweet hints of caramel, or Black Tobacco, a curiously popular mix of tobacco and liquorice.

What e-liquid flavours are good menthol alternatives?

If you’re really looking to change your habits but hang on to that menthol taste, our menthol flavours are second to none. We’ve combined a variety of minty flavours with a huge number of fruit and sweet flavours. Firm favourites here at the LiQuid offices are the refreshing Citrus Ice, the unique Cherry Menthol and the powerfully refreshing Black Ice.

If you want something a little more special, we’ve recently created the awesome Sour Blue and Sour Lime Slush flavours, both of which offer a cooling effect like no other.
