The Reserva Collection is home to our stunning range of naturally extracted tobacco e-liquid. Each tobacco variety is carefully selected, expertly blended and then steeped for at least a month to develop and enhance the intense and rich tobacco flavour.
All of the tobacco flavours we use are naturally extracted from hand-picked tobacco leaves. Our experts have carefully selected some of the world’s finest tobacco varieties, and from these, only mature leaves are chosen.
We never use any artificial tobacco flavour in our tobacco e-liquid as we aim to deliver a true representation of the tobacco varieties we have chosen.
Naturally extracted tobacco captures the essence of the tobacco leaf without introducing any harshness or bitter undertones that can be experienced using artificial flavourings.
THE FINEST TOBACCO E-LIQUIDS EXPERTLY CRAFTED IN THE UK
The Reserva tobacco e-liquid collection uses only naturally produced flavours and extracts. We add nothing artificial to any of our products, and all Nicotine used is of pharmaceutical grade. Our manufacturing processes ensure that the flavour profile of each tobacco used is perfectly captured in our liquids.
‘Naturally extracted tobacco’ refers to the process by which the tobacco flavours or essence is removed (extracted) from the tobacco leaf. There are various ways of achieving this, but at Red Vape, we use a process called proprietary cold maceration, as it is considered the gold standard method for extracting the true essence of the tobacco flavour.
A similar process is used in the production of certain types of wine, such as Burgundy, as winemakers believe it produces a more vibrant and fuller flavour.
The result is an extremely flavourful extract.
The extracted flavours are very close to the botanical tobacco leaf taste. So we must be very careful in selecting mature leaves from our chosen tobacco varieties to achieve the perfect authentic taste.
Combined with our unique ageing and steeping processes, our e-liquid production is by no means quick. However, we’re passionate about flavours and creating the finest tobacco e-liquid, and this takes time and dedication.

WHY CHOOSE NATURALLY EXTRACTED TOBACCO E-LIQUID
Naturally extracted tobacco is not a new vaping term, but it is one that often confuses people. You’ll often see it on websites or on the side of e-liquid bottles in its abbreviated forms, ‘NET’ or N.E.T’. If you enjoy tobacco e-liquid, then it’s an important term to understand, as the difference between an e-liquid that contains NET and one that doesn’t can be considerable.
At Red Vape, we’ve been using naturally extracted tobacco in all our tobacco e-liquids since we were founded in 2016. We are one of only a small number of e-liquid manufacturers around the world to exclusively use only NET as we believe it’s the only way to produce authentic tobacco flavours.
What is Naturally Extracted Tobacco?
The term ‘naturally extracted tobacco’ actually refers to the process used to isolate the tobacco flavour from the tobacco leaf. Several methods are used to achieve this. At Red Vape, we use a procedure known as proprietary cold maceration.
The cold maceration technique is the slowest and most expensive method available, but it gives the best results. The flavours achieved through this process are the closest to the original tobacco essence, with the delicate nuances of each tobacco variety carefully preserved.
The more popular alternative uses heat to extract the tobacco flavour. This is a far quicker and lower-cost method, but the introduction of heat can mean that the subtle undertones in the flavour profile are lost.
Cold maceration is also used to produce certain varieties of wine, with Burgundy being the best-known example. Expert winemakers believe the process creates a more vibrant and deep flavour in their final product.
When using the cold maceration extraction process, it’s important only to select the mature tobacco leaves from the plant. The mature leaves produce the perfect, fuller tobacco flavour we’re looking for in our finished tobacco e-liquid.
What Are The Alternatives to Naturally Extracted Tobacco
Creating tobacco flavour e-liquid using naturally extracted tobacco that is obtained from the cold maceration process is a slow, labour-intensive and costly process. This is exactly the reason why the vast majority of e-liquid manufacturers use alternative methods to flavour their products.
As we’ve mentioned above, a maceration process that uses heat can also produce naturally extracted tobacco. This is both quicker and cheaper. However, the final flavours are less refined than those produced using the cold technique. When vaping, you may notice a bitterness that taints the flavour and can ruin the e-liquid.
By far, the most common method is to use synthetic, laboratory-produced tobacco flavourings. Artificial flavourings are used in most e-liquids, tobacco or otherwise, as they offer a simple, low-cost solution for e-liquid manufacturers. While these flavourings may come close to the original, they don’t capture the true essence and miss the subtle nuances that natural flavourings provide.
Why Choose Naturally Extracted Tobacco E-Liquid
People choose their e-liquid for lots of different reasons. Some people like to keep trying new flavours; others are very focused on price. A lot of vapers pick one e-liquid and stick with it religiously. If you’re the type of vaper who wants a high-quality product with a focus on flavour, then naturally extracted tobacco e-liquids are for you. They offer a rich, full flavour that simply can’t be recreated by artificial flavourings.
