Vampire Vape

WINNER OF VAPOUROUND HALL OF FAME

The vape industry is an ever-evolving sector with constant growth, new technologies and boundless innovations. However, there are a few stand out products that live on in legend. These products not only pass the test of time but also help guide the industry’s future.

Following on from last year’s winner - the iconic Lemon Tart by Dinner Lady - we are pleased to present our third Vapouround Hall of Fame inductee...the world-renowned Heisenberg from leading brand Vampire Vape.

Vampire Vape has dominated the global vape sector, with the brand - and its award-winning Heisenberg flavour becoming a household name in the industry.

Developed in 2014 as a limited-edition flavour, it soon became apparent that the demand for Heisenberg was impossible to ignore and it was added to Vampire Vape’s range. It has remained a firm favourite ever since.

MYLÉ

WINNER OF INDUSTRY LEADER

Globally, MYLÉ has become a go-to vape brand for consistency in design, ease of use and quality.

They have helped to set a high global market standard, providing vapers with a premium reduced risk alternative to smoking.

MYLÉ consistently strives to innovate and leads the way in vape technology and function, which is why MYLÉ is the very deserving winner of this year’s Vapouround Awards ‘Industry Leader’.

Pukka Juice - Cherry Blaze

WINNER OF E-LIQUID OF THE YEAR

Since 2017, Pukka Juice has been creating authentic fruit blends to suit every style of vaper.

The global brand continues to go from strength to strength, boasting millions of UK e-liquid sales in the past year alone.

It's no surprise that the brand's award-winning Cherry Blaze flavour - which won ‘Best Fruit’ at the Vapouround Awards in 2021 - was crowned ‘E-Liquid of the Year’ at our 2022 awards ceremony.

John Dunne, Director General of UKVIA

WINNER OF ADVOCATE OF THE YEAR

At the helm of the UK’s biggest vape industry group, the UKVIA, John Dunne has helped guide the nation – and the world – closer than ever to a smoke-free future.

His continued work with politicians and the media means vaping in the UK is increasingly perceived as a power for good, instead of a peer to deadly cigarettes.

And his close ties with some of the biggest names in the industry, as well as his steadfast stance on compliance, allows the vape community to uplift public health and steer smokers towards a lifesaving alternative.

For these reasons – and many more – UKVIA Director General John Dunne is the Vapouround Awards 2022 ‘Advocate of the Year’.

Dinner Lady

WINNER OF VAPE BRAND OF THE YEAR

Dinner Lady has become one of the biggest brands in the UK industry, continuously producing hugely popular premium vaping products.

Dinner Lady is no stranger to the Vapouround Awards, having earned an impressive collection of trophies throughout the years - most notably being crowned last year’s Vapouround Hall of Fame winner for its beloved Lemon Tart e-liquid.

Vape Brand of the Year recognises a company that has maintained a level of excellence across all aspects of their brand…and Dinner Lady has done just that.

John Taylor, Dinner Lady’s Chief Marketing Officer, said: "We are delighted to receive this accolade from Vapouround, the respected voice of the vape industry. It is great to see that Dinner Lady - a British company which was started in 2016 by founder and CEO Mohammed Patel - has become a household name in many international markets, employing hundreds of people in such a short space of time”.
