E-liquid/e-juice Storing & How long e-liquid lasts
E-Liquid Shelf Life:
E-liquid has a relatively long shelf life. A closed bottle of e-liquid can keep fresh for or more years without issue. Our e-liquid comes with a best before date, ensuring you will always be vaping fresh e-liquid.
When an e-liquid is old, there are two main things that start to deteriorate:
- The nicotine level will gradually reduce
- The flavour will gradually reduce
There are no dangers or health issues vaping old e-liquid.
E-liquid is best stored in a cool dark place. Typically the top shelf of a pantry, or a high shelf in a basement would be ideal. It is not necessary or recommended to store e-liquid in a freezer or fridge. E-liquid will not freeze at typical temperatures due to its ingredients, however it is not recommended to freeze e-liquid.
When using cold e-liquid, it can thicken, causing it to become difficult to pour. If you leave e-liquid outside in the winter, it is recommended to move it to a warmer area for a few hours before using.
Some e-liquid tastes best when freshest, while other e-liquid tastes better once it is steeped. Steeping e-liquid is essentially letting it sit for a time for the flavours to amalgamate with each other. This will often cause an increase in flavour. Some of our e-liquids actually taste better once steeped for a week or two. Experiment with your e-liquid and you might find that older e-liquid actually tastes better. This is especially true with some tobacco flavours.
