WINNER OF OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION TO THE VAPE INDUSTRY
Another highly coveted award, this category honours those truly special brands and products that make the industry what it is today. The award recognises quality, innovation and influence. Whether an e-liquid, hardware or an individual, it takes a true disruptor to be in the running.
Last year, awards favourite Premium Labs won the award for the Dr Fog Classics range. The year before it was Usonicig, whose ceramic heating technology changed the coil game. And now, we once again honour Nasty Juice. An incredible achievement.
This Malaysian brand has become a truly global phenomenon thanks to its incredible juices and iconic branding. Congratulations to Nasty Juice for their Outstanding Contribution to the Vape Industry.
WINNER OF HALL OF FAME
The vape industry evolves at a rapid pace. In a relatively short space of time, we’ve gone from a handful of simple, convenience store cigalikes and home-made ‘mod’ devices to a huge, professional industry. But for all the changes we see year to year, some incredible products have lived on in legend. These products not only pass the test of time, they also help set a template for the industry’s future.
No awards ceremony goes by without a nod to this year’s legendary winner. Following on from Innevape’s internationally renowned Heisenberg, we were delighted to honour a true British icon – Lemon Tart by Dinner Lady. With its zesty and nostalgic flavour, Lemon Tart is truly a juice for the ages.
CLOUDY O FUNKY
WINNER OF INDUSTRY LEADERS
In its short lifespan, the vape industry has become a world leader in health innovation. So the Vapouround award for Industry Leader carries a lot of weight. Some big and influential names have picked up this gong over the years. In 2019, it was Malaysian giant Nasty Juice, who always have a big presence at the awards. And last year, we celebrated FEELM after a brilliant year for the Chinese brand.

WINNER OF E-LIQUID OF THE YEAR
E-Liquid of the Year is always one of the most competitive categories at the Vapouround Awards. And once again, our entrants faced stiff competition, spanning sweets, menthols, desserts, salt nic and more. There could only be one winner.
Some incredible juices have won this award over the years, all wearing their crest with pride for months and years to follow. In 2019, it was Riot Squad with the fruity Raspberry Grenade and last year, Pacha Mama’s Fuji Apple, Strawberry and Nectarine took the gong.
And for the 2021 E-Liquid of the Year, we welcome Cush Man Mango from Nasty Juice.
These guys continue to put out bottle after bottle of delicious and creative e-liquids. Honestly, any number of their juices could have won it this year.
So congratulations to 2021 E-Liquid of the Year – Cush Man Mango by Nasty Juice.
