Inspired by my Bloody Juniper, I present here her dark and mysterious Sister- Black Juniper!
Ive been enjoying gin vapes so much recently that I decided to try another gin but wanted something 'darker'.
The notes are pretty much the same as the Blood Orange with the exception of the main flavor being Juicy Blackcurrant!
My first choice was FA Blackcurrant, the Juiciest and best single black currant in my opinion.
I used the combination of FA Blackcurrant and a touch of FLV Elder flower for that deeper mystery that just compliments the Juniper gin's herbal notes in a special way!
If you like a Berry Gin, give this a smash! Its seductively Dark and boozy while still being sweet enough to enjoy all day long!
As Always I'd say yes, But here I would say Hell Yass! It makes for a delicious Vape!
I feel this needs the few days steep for the Stronger Herbal notes of the Juniper to settle and mellow down to where I like it, But if you like a full on Gin, smash this as a SnV.
I was inspired to create this recipe after tasting a Local Juniper Gin crafted by SAs first Juice makers and it is By far hands down the Best Gin vape that I have had, ever. This Juice is called VM Juniper and was crafted by Benji from Vapour Mountain.
With my last bottle of the above Juniper running very low, I decided to create my own Juniper and it was based off a Craft Gin that I mixed and tasted at a Gin farm in Cape Town.
Using FLV Juniper Gin to bring the very authentic Juniper Flavour I kept it on the lower end as I enjoy a subtle boozy note and wanted all aspects to shine and compliment this Gin. with the Black tea added to compliment the herbal back notes of the Juniper and this all then infused with some sweet blood orange!
I used my new favorite 'liquidizer', Cucumber! in combination with a little Citrus soda and WS23 to give a cool soda/tonic mixer. Cucumber also has a very complimentary flavor at higher % that works Very well with a Gin.
As Always I'd say yes, But here I would say Hell Yass! It just compliments everything as if the only sweetner is from the Blood Orange!
I personally feel this needs the few days steep for the Stronger Herbal notes of the Juniper to settle and mellow down to where I like it.
I’ve been trying to crack this one for awhile now and can finally say I’m happy with this and feel it’s as close as I’m ever going to get it without knowing the exact original recipe. I’ve vaped the original like it’s going out of fashion and can honestly say this ejuice is the absolute bombdiggly. I’m proud to share this with you guys, mix it up,give it a few days and prepare yourself for some delicious flavours. Please leave your feedback and be so kind to rate my recipe. Happy mixing fuckerz!!!! 💙 😙💨💨💨
One of my favorite commercial juices is Stormy by Hometown Heroes. , a lime and cucumber soda. It was the inspiration for this recipe.
The base is RF Soda Base, sweetened and cooled with Rick's Sugar Daddy and WS-23.
The cucumber is not a dominate flavor, and it could be bumped up a little if desired.
The INW Cactus-Lime and FA Florida Key Lime are the main note, but it is not harsh, and can be vaped right away.
I mixed this at 50/50 to vape in my Digiflavor Siren 2 at high ohm 1.0 SS316, and it was exactly what I was looking for, although it is nothing like Stormy.
A classic gin cocktail with a hint of rose & cucumber.

Based on the craft gin craze, I recreated a Rose & Cucumber Tonic using the new FLV Citrus Soda, infused with Rose and Cucumber as the mixer.
This is a homage to Juniper, an outstanding juice by my favourite local juice maker, Benji from Vapour Mountain.
Pick up a bottle and let me know how it compares here http://www.vapourmountain.co.za/shop/60ml-eliquids/60ml-vapour-mountain-juniper-e-liquid-2mg/
FLV Gin is a masterfully created, authentic dry gin which leaves little guesswork to the vaper as to what they are tasting. The resinous, piney flavour, inherent to the Juniper berry, is wonderfully balanced by citrus peel and a smidgen of spiciness from freshly ground peppercorns. There is a wondrous boozy element to the flavour which rounds the profile off expertly. The 'booziness' is not overwhelming in the least but rather augments the authenticity & overall Gin experience. I see this as the best bits of FA Fin and FM Pure Gin combined to create a well rounded & balanced Gin.
FLV Rose Essence brings a delicate, true rose, sophistication to the mix and softens the gin ever so slightly. This is a very "safe" rose flavour compared to other overpowering versions, and will not kill your mix, if used with care. At 2% it brings a semi-rose tinge without being floral, nor does it hinder the Gin to shine. The TPA Rose Candy assists the FLV Rose Essene to punch through the Gin foundation, which can restrict other flavors to shine. In addition, this adds a splash of sweetness to a relatively dry Gin.
FLV Citrus Soda brings a new level of an authentic lemonade/Sprite type flavor to the market. This is a fresh lemon and lime base with a touch of fizziness to perfectly emulate a Sprite like mixer. This is a more dynamic version of FLV Lemonade as it has more pronounced fresh lemon and lime notes. This acts as the mixer base and assists in "moisturising' the gin.
CAP Cucumber fulfills two roles here: Firstly, it provides some juiciness to mix without detraction. INW Cactus does this slightly better but it imparts an unwelcome flavour in this melange. Secondly, the subtle cucumber flavor adds another flavor dimension/layer which concludes the overall profile with an intriguing little twist. I found 2.5% to be aptly enough but it can be increased to around 4% for a more pronounced cucumber taste.
WS23/Koolada is optional at .50 to provide an icy feel.
Give this one at least 3 days to settle down...
This is a simple, stupid cucumber mix intended to meet or beat the cucumber mix used by the epidemiological pod device that shall not be named.
It's pretty good.
Cap cucumber gives it the mushy middle, FA adds in a bit more peel (Which of these are more attractive to the yoots of 'Merka is unknown at the time of this writing.)
Oddly, Since you'll see cucumber used in some cases to boost the rind note of many melons, I played around with adding some wild melon to boost the cucumber wet notes. I haven't played all that much with up and down percentages for this, but I'm pretty happy with it just where it is. :)
WS-23 gives it a bit of coolness to boost that fresh sense you get from biting into a good 'ole back yard cucumber.
Anyways.. Pretty fun little mix for pod devices if that's your thing..
