The Drake's Natural Tobacco Extraction Process
Drake’s Cold Maceration/Natural Extraction
Naturally extracted tobacco is exactly what it sounds like. Ground and/or chopped tobacco distilled into a VG/PG base. The process retains the pure taste of tobacco into the mixture. Heating can be used to add more flavour or to accelerate the process. Although for a superior flavour Drake's uses a cold process known as Cold Maceration which is famed for being able to preserve the flavourful nuance of traditional leaf tobaccos.
Natural Extraction vs Artificial Tobacco Flavourings
Modern technology has tried unsuccessfully to recreate many of the beautiful things that nature gives us for free. We can see an example of this in the failed attempts by many to reproduce authentic natural flavours in e-liquids.
No laboratory-made flavour comes even close to comparing to the rich, complex and full flavour of the real thing.
It is undeniable that if one truly wants to excite their taste buds and all the other senses that come with it, then the natural way will offer them true satisfaction.
6-9 Week Cold Maceration Extraction
Drake's uses a six-to-nine week cold steeping method using only the finest tobacco varieties, sourced from some of the best tobacco farmers in the world. During the production process, absolutely no artificial flavours are added to the leaves. This allows the tobacco to develop its natural flavour and aroma completely. Essentially each leaf is allowed to retain and mature its own signature flavour note.
The juices are available in mix ratios of 50:50 and also in nicotine concentrations of 3, 6, and 12mg.
With the above in mind, it’s worth noting that Drakes’s tobacco passes through a thorough lab screening process to ensure it is free of any harmful content. These include substances such as Diacetyl and Acetyl Propionyl.
This guarantees that the finished product is in its purest form
