– Err, so who are you again..?
Daddy Pig is a passionate vaper and ex-smoker and these days, something of a recluse. Not by choice, but by compulsion.
While learning the mixing craft and enjoying the ride and the possibilities, the initial interest in creating new and exciting juice grew in him, becoming stronger and stronger, perhaps in an unhealthy way. Some say the flavours began to dominate him. What was once a fun hobby became a consuming and powerful force in his life, invading his thoughts and taking over what was left of his time and creative energy with ideas of juice combinations and deliciousness. Daydreams of being a rockstar and nights with beautiful sows faded over time and were replaced with calculated, methodical ways to replicate scents and flavours that made his mouth water.
The fruity plumes of vapour he was producing in his foggy workspace, for him, slowly replaced traditional ideas of company. What once were his loves were removed and replaced with this new infatuation. Bottle upon bottle of juice were strewn across his shelves like confetti on some church paving slab after a June wedding, all labelled and noted, documenting the nuances of each flavour combination, tweaked and refined until Daddy Pig was happy.
Is he ever happy, really? Well, yes. Yes he is. Sometimes. But once one juice is perfect…
There is always another juice to make. Another flavour that he hasn’t mastered. Another delicious scent in the air he is driven to recreate. The cycle repeats. What is wrong with him? Why is this such a consuming thing? Why does the perfect combination of dragonfruit and honeysuckle cream elude him still? Why does one of the tobacco vapes he holds so much hope for still taste a little bit like hay? Why isn’t roast chicken e-liquid as delicious as eating a roast chicken? (He abandoned that idea and moved on shortly after thankfully, along with crab and blue cheese).
These are the questions that keep Daddy Pig up at night, his porcine brain whirring away on overdrive. And up at night he is, working by candlelight like some mad scientist mixing elixirs and potions to make vapable magic, toiling until the candle wick runs down to a nib and the low flickering light tells him it is enough for tonight . From the outside looking in it must seem a lonely life, but when you are so consumed, so fuelled by flavours… maybe that’s all you need, and maybe that makes it worthwhile.
(Too long, didn’t read – Daddy Pig Smoke Juice makes tasty juice and are passionate about it)
– Where’s the nicotine option gone?
It’s been removed I’m afraid. Selling juice containing nicotine is no longer an option on this site, not because I don’t want to, more that the TPD requirements have made it impossible (more on that here)
– What happened to the 2x30ml shortfills?
They’ve been replaced with a single 60ml bottle. I know a lot of people liked that option, but overall it’s easier dealing with a single bottle. If you’d rather have 60ml shortfill split into 2x30ml bottles, that is no problem, just leave a comment in the order notes and it shall be so.
– What is steeping?
Juice for your vape takes a while to get as good as it needs to be. There are only a few ingredients in there, but the separate components need some time to combine and really shine. Some people compare it to keeping a wine in the cellar. Daddy Pig mixes these fresh and while we do everything possible to make sure they are ready to go when you receive them, some flavours take a little longer to get to their best. If you can be patient with it, it’ll be at it’s best for you in a few days (I know, I hate waiting too…)
On the off chance it’s not exactly what you’re expecting, please, give it a few days and try it again. Not even kidding, it makes such a difference. Some juices out there are recommended to steep for over a month(!) but Daddy Pig does what he can to make sure you don’t have to wait. Worst case though, a few days in a dark cupboard will allow the magic to happen
If you’re curious, there’s a really detailed breakdown of what steeping is here (click for link)
– Why is my juice darker / lighter than the picture on the website?
It’s to do with steeping, the colour of the flavouring and the level of nicotine in the juice. Over time juices with higher nicotine levels will naturally become darker as they age – it’s normal. Juice with zero nic tend to stay fairly clear, provided the flavour components are also clear.
There’s more about this in this link right here and in the steeping link above
– I don’t have Paypal. How do I order from you?
Don’t worry, you don’t need it. Paypal is really handy (being able to pay with your email address is almost too handy), but you don’t have to have a Paypal account to use Paypal. The option to pay with a credit or debit card is there when you checkout just below the usual username and password section where it says “Pay with a debit or credit card” – you don’t need to sign up to use it
If you’re concerned about Paypal’s security with your bank details, please read this link. Paypal will take any card details via an encrypted HTTPS site – you’ll see the HTTPS at the start of the web address in your browser. Hopefully that link will address any concerns you might have, but if it doesn’t please let me know, I’ll help as best I can
– Where is your shop? I want to come visit you
Don’t have one yet It might happen at some point and when it does the link will be up on the site, but for now it’s all web-based. That’s not a bad thing though – no rent for a shop means the prices stay low, and it’s not like you can’t get hold of Daddy Pig through the Contact Us page. Send us a message and you’ll get a reply as soon as humanly possible
– Do you do a different level PG/VG ratio?
Sure. If you want an e-liquid made to your own specification, send us a message. If it’s doable, we’ll do it, but we’re not allowed to add nicotine anymore – really sorry about that.
– Do any of your juices contain diacetyl?
No. None of our flavours contain diacetyl.
– I have a question you haven’t answered
So sorry, please let me know what it is and I’ll fix that. Email me or send a comment in the box below, I’ll get back to you as soon as I can with the best information I have
