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, at their 60,000 sq.ft. state-of-the-art GMP facility in Wales, under an exclusive three-year licence.
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.
