IRVINE, Calif. — April 30, 2015 - Five Pawns, the world’s leading maker of premium vapor liquid, announced today it is launching a new line of vapor liquids that feature an alternative to propylene glycol (PG). The new PG‐alternative line will deliver the same legendary flavor profiles that Five Pawns is known for, while offering an alternative to people with PG sensitivity. The new line of vapor liquids will also solve the flavor problem for those who have sacrificed taste in pursuit of greater vapor production.
“There are two segments of the vape fan base that have been asking for a PG-alternative -‐ but for very different reasons,” said Five Pawns Founder, CEO and Mixologist Rodney Jerabek. “We are proud to be the first in the vapor industry to provide a PG‐alternative vapor liquid that not only addresses those who experience an irritation to PG, but also delivers a phenomenal taste experience for those who want more vapor production from their vapor liquid.”
Five Pawns premium vapor liquids pair the absolute best quality ingredients and craftsmanship with a distinct taste and feel to create and evoke a memorable vaping experience that plays to each of the five tastes known to man: sweet, bitter, sour, salty, and savory (umami). All Five Pawns premium vapor liquid is handcrafted in small batches from the finest quality ingredients. Five Pawns will unveil the first flavor from the new PG-alternative line in early summer.
The new line is a 50/50 blend of vegetable glycerin (VG) and propanediol (PD), an all-natural alternative to PG, which is naturally derived from cornstarch fermented with corn sugar. PD has approval from EcoCert™ (an internationally recognized natural and organic seal) and the Natural Product Association (U.S.‐based natural personal care certification), and is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA), as well as certified and verified s-GRAS, USDA 100 percent bio‐based, USP‐FCC, Kosher, Halal, and FEMA GRAS. PD offers a natural, non‐irritating alternative to PG.
In an effort to produce more vapor, some users have resorted to lower-PG vapor liquids at the sacrifice of flavor. Five Pawns new PG-alternative line delivers both a classic Five Pawns flavor profile and increased vapor production.
“We’re a flavor company so our standards were high for developing these PG-alternative vapor liquids,” said Jerabek. “We’ve worked steadily for more than six months to craft the new line, and we can’t wait to finally introduce it to our fans. I’ve been enjoying it exclusively for the last few months and can personally attest to the great flavor and vapor production.”
Five Pawns is dedicated to quality and is committed to providing an alternative for those wanting a pleasurable vice with less consequence. Five Pawns’ new PG-alternative line is just the latest in a long line of industry innovations. Five Pawns was the first liquid company to:
- Ship their liquid in 30ml, sealed and puncture resistant glass bottles with child-resistant and tamper‐evident caps and updated warning labels
- Add the extra step of secondary packaging to further ensure the safety of liquids
- Bring traceability to their vapor liquids with batch numbers, lot numbers, bottle numbers and bottling dates on both the bottle and packaging tube
- Utilize the trifecta of an ISO-8 manufacturing clean room and manufacturing standards to ensure product quality and control, consistency and traceability; a gravimetric pouring system to ensure greater accuracy and consistency in ingredient measurement; and a gyroscopic and orbital mixing system that provides optimal continuity within the finished product.
