About Padstow Blends
Padstow Blends Products
All products blended by Padstow Blends are produced in the UK, in accordance with a strict Quality Management System, to rigorous manufacturing standards.
We only blend TPD compliant flavourings developed for vaping by British BRC certified flavouring manufacturers who offer full traceability and the best production standards.
The VG and PG in our eliquid base are also sourced from British BRC accredited suppliers and manufactured under ISO9001 accreditation or above, with an audited QMS in place.
We continually research global flavour markets and collaborate with eliquid retailers and vapers to trial flavours, gather feedback and monitor emerging trends.
Our blends are always created and released in small batches, enabling us to stay innovative, agile and responsive to feedback, flavour trends and scientific developments.
We regularly liaise with our suppliers’ flavourists on compound analysis and ingredient tailoring, to consistently balance flavour creativity with emerging health guidelines.
We are dedicated to showcasing the diversity and potential of vaping-specific flavourings to encourage their industry-wide adoption as an alternative to standard food flavourings.
We aim to deliver unique, genre-leading and trend-setting flavours which are steadfastly authentic to their description, with nuances so complex they can’t be precisely imitated.
Flavour Blending Services
Padstow Blends’ bespoke flavour blending service is available to commercial eliquid manufacturers and flavouring suppliers.
Companies of all sizes trust us to take care of their flavours, so they can focus their time, expertise and resources on business development rather than flavour development.
We can blend flavours for very specific commissions, including trouble-shooting for TPD compliance and precise end-use, such as CBD, nic salts, sub-ohm and mouth-to-lung.
Product information is available from ourselves and our suppliers to support GMP and TPD notification, including CAS numbers, MSDS and CofA documentation, as required.
Each individual blend contains flavourings from a single flavouring manufacturer, for optimum compound compatibility, product traceability and TPD compliance.
We are a small business dedicated to flavour blending, so we can often be faster and more flexible in meeting a brief than many flavouring manufacturers or busy in-house teams.
Our confidentiality, discretion and professionalism are assured from the outset, with comprehensive NDAs and established legal documentation already in place.
We prefer to unleash creativity rather than stifle it with upfront costs, so instead of charging fees we like to let our blends earn their keep for us, and our clients, over time.
We don’t undertake requests to copy and exploit someone else’s flavours but, apart from that, we’re up for almost any flavouring challenges you can throw at us!
The Padstow Blends Story
Matthew Morris, co-founder of Padstow Blends, began blending flavours purely for his own consumption in 2013. By early 2014, word had spread and demand for his blends increased, so Matt officially started producing his own range of high-quality eliquids containing his flavour blends, under theVaperCrew brand.
Soon after, VaperCrew was incorporated as a limited company, based in a purpose-built production facility in Worcestershire. Here, together with a team of colleagues and pharmaceutical, regulatory and compliance consultants, Matt firmly established VaperCrew as a trustworthy producer of high-quality British eliquids.
In early 2016, VaperCrew announced that its eliquids (including the double-award-winning Baker’s Fog brand amongst others) would be produced, supplied and distributed by Lumo Liquids Ltd, under an exclusive three-year licence, which culminated in Lumo acquiring the brands in 2019.
Collaboratively throughout the licence, VaperCrew and Lumo brought a large portfolio of Matt’s distinctive flavour blends to the wider branded and OEM eliquid markets, across the UK and EU; working with customers ranging from independent vape shops to major international corporations.
In 2017, Matt and his family relocated to the edge of Padstow on the North Cornwall coast. Here, he continued to expand his flavour blend collection, inspired and influenced by the wealth of sensory and culinary delights in the famous foodie harbour town, and the vibrant and innovative Cornish culture.
In 2019, Matt and his team took the bold step of rebranding the business as Padstow Blends, to more accurately reflect the company’s passion and focus: blending flavours. The new name perfectly encapsulates the journey to our wonderful new destination …both geographically and operationally.
