The Flavour Smiths – Blackcurrant E liquid flavour concentrate
DIY E-Liquid Concentrate
The Flavour Smiths DIY e liquid flavour concentrates are superb single flavours which can be used to create one-shots for vape juice. Formulated to be both authentic and strong, TFS flavour concentrates are the perfect solution for your DIY needs. As with all single flavours, they’re intended to be mixed with other flavours, sweeteners and additives to create a well-rounded profile that works well in your device. Mixing your own e liquid is a simple task that just requires some trial and error as well as some careful planning – you don’t want to waste too much of your liquid so mix in small batches first before committing to your final batch.
TFS Blackcurrant E liquid concentrate is a sweet and strong profile lending itself to berry profiles but also works very well in most e liquid recipes. It has a slight tang to it as you’d expect and this can be very pleasant when vaped, though the addition of various additives and enhancers like koolada ws-23 and ultra sweet can be used to tweek the overall flavour profile. Blackcurrant Ribes E Liquid is a great flavour and used extensively throughout the market and a favourite among those mixing their own e liquid recipes. We consider it a staple flavour in your toolbox and it offers great value for money. A little bit of blue raspberry e liquid flavour concentrate goes a very long way.

You can decide to measure in weight or volume, either way the method is similar. Measure the correct volume of each component and add to the bottle or container you’re mixing into. Shake well, then add your VG/PG & Nicotine to create a useable e liquid. The above recipe should be used at 20% in eliquid, so if you mix 20ml of the concentrate, you’ll need 80ml of Vg/Pg and Nicotine at the correct ratio according to your requirements.
