Ichor Liquid Review
Ichor Liquid Review
Ichor Liquid is an E-cig company that specializes in 100% VG E-liquids for people who are allergic to PG bases – which is certainly unique and sets them apart from a lot of other E-liquid companies. They say this about their services on the About Us page of their website…
“HERE YOU WILL FIND THE ONLY PLACE CURRENTLY OFFERING TRUE 100% VEGETABLE GLYCERINE BASED E LIQUIDS… We cater for those who have allergies to Propylene Glycol (PG), which is commonly found in the more commercial e Liquids available on the market.”
They also say that they are the ‘only UK based e-tail store offering 100% true VG e Liquid within the UK’, which is certainly a bold and attention-grabbing statement – but with that being said, we see no reason not to believe that it’s true.
But what about the company and their products? Are they a good company to shop with, or will you be left a bit wanting by their selection or level of quality?
Here’s what we found out about Ichor Liquid over the course of our research.
Pros and Cons
Here are the basic pros and cons that we discovered about this website when writing this Ichor Liquid review.
- They stock a very impressive array of different E Liquid flavours
- They offer real 100% VG Liquids for those with PG allergies
- You can order your E-liquids in virtually any VG/PG ratio
- You can completely customize your flavours by adding more different flavours, for nearly unlimited options
- Great customer reviews and a fantastic reputation
- The advanced options on E-liquid orders can really only be accessed with Firefox browsers (at least, that’s what seemed to be the case for us)
- The E-liquids may be a bit more expensive here than they are on other sites. But with that being said, these are premium-quality liquids that are mixed right here in the UK
What products/accessories can be purchased?
This retailer seems to focus completely on E-liquids. They have several product categories, including the following…
- E Liquid Refills
- Safety (which is more of a safety information center)
- Steeping (another information center where they provide articles on steeping)
As far as we can tell, this company is very focused on E Liquids. They offer a fairly extensive array of different flavours, ranging from traditional tobacco options to more exotic specialty mixtures. All of their VG E Liquids are actually mixed in the UK. They also say that they can be carefully hand-mixed to order for specific tastes, which is another awesome feature.
Ichor Liquid also makes it a point to point out that their VG E Liquids contain zero traces of PG. PG cannot even be found in the bases that are used for the flavouring concentrates – which is different from the way most E Liquid retailers operate. When some companies say 100% VG E-liquid, they’re actually not telling you that there may still be a very small amount of PG left over from the nicotine base or the flavour concentrate – but with Ichor, you know that 100% VG means 100% VG.
Features that stands out
Since this company mostly offers E Liquids, we decided to review a feature that stood out, rather than a specific product. In this case, we decided to review the ‘advanced options’ that you can select during the ordering process. Not many E-liquid manufacturers offer this sort of feature, so we were pretty pumped to see such a thing offered by Ichor.
Basically, whenever you order an E Liquid from Ichor Liquids, you’ll have a ‘basic’ option or an ‘advanced’ option. If you choose basic, you’ll order the liquid as-is. But if you click on ‘advanced’, you’ll have some additional options to choose from.
Incidentally, the extra options sometimes aren’t visible on Internet Explorer – so we switched our browser to Chrome to see if it worked any better.
Unfortunately, we were still unable to see the extra options, even when using Chrome – which was a bit of a downside for us. The company does, however, state that windows-based browsers and devices sometimes have problems bringing up the options – so downloading Firefox would probably sort it all out.
We even tried to bring up the options on our android smartphone – but still to no avail.
Firefox might be the only option (which we didn’t try because we didn’t have a device handy that was running it), which isn’t too big of a deal. But still, it was a bit disappointing that were unable to play around with these features on the browsers that we had available.
In the end, however, it sounds like you get a LOT of customization options – so kudos to Ichor Liquids for offering so many customization options.
Packaging and design
The packaging on these products seems simple, but effective. The bottles are covered with quality labels, and the designs seem very well-thought-out. We certainly didn’t see a problem with this aspect of the company or how it conducts its business in this regard.
There were quite a few user reviews available online for these products – including a huge number of them right on the official website. Some of these E Liquids had over 100 reviews posted about them – which is quite impressive. Here are just a few examples of reviews that we found for one of Ichor’s E Liquids, called Fives.
“Added with a touch of Vanilla, Fives has a great taste.”
“Great tasting liquid, tastes like a real thing. Goes really well with cream.”
“First order, did not read description of Fives flavour did not enjoy the tobacco taste, other 100% VG flavours were great and will not buy anything else now! Great liquid and fantastic service :)”

The product choice on Ichor is amazing. Not only do they offer a huge range of E-Liquids, but the customization options that they offer for these liquids are astounding. We were truly blown away by the huge range of customization options available to customers on Ichor Liquids – so when it comes to product choice, this website deserves a big thumbs up!
There are literally so many flavours available on Ichor Liquid that we cannot even begin to list them all. And with the option to add flavours to existing flavours through special-order, you almost have an unlimited number of combinations.
- Nicotine Levels
The E-Liquids available on Ichor Liquids come in the following nicotine strength options… 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg, and 24mg.

About the Company
Ichor Liquids began much like any other E-cig retailer – until the owner realized that his wife had a PG allergy. It was then that he decided to focus on 100% real VG E-liquids – and the company has never done better.
It would also seem that the website is registered/run by a company called T Consolidated LTD.
T Consolidated LTD, Farrant Park, Castletown, Isle of Man IM9 1NG
The company got its start back in January of 2013. They began by selling E-cigs and other supplies, though they eventually re-launched their website to provide 100% real VG Eliquids for people who enjoy real VG and also for those with allergies to PG.
You do, however, need to meet a few requirements to quality for the free shipping option. If you are within the UK, then your order total needs to over £40.00. If your order is international, it needs to total more than £70.00.
Value for the money
Ichor Liquid definitely offers a lot of value for the money. Their e liquids are very reasonably priced, and they are doubtlessly crafted to a higher level of quality than most.
You can buy a 10ml bottle of E Liquid on this website for £3.99 – which is actually quite reasonable for a 100% VG liquid.
In the end, we were quite impressed with this company. They offer a lot of different E-liquids, and we were quite blown away by their customization options. With that being said, we were a little bit disappointed that we couldn’t get the customization features to work on our browser – but then again, a Firefox download would probably sort all of those problems out.
If you’re in the market for E-liquids and want some real, serious 100% VG liquids for sub-ohm vaping or due to a PG allergy, then this is definitely a website that you need to visit. For more, go to the official website: www.ichorliquid.co.uk
