    I've been checking his website for months. Does he make an announcement when he's dropping a batch or what? I thought I was going to be able to get some from cloud 9 but it seems even they have given up and are now stocking another brand. How do I get my vapy little hands on GVC?? Haha.

    Edit: after a tip from Grant (via email) I was able to find the ratio (50/50) and nic level (12mg/mL) that I was looking for in a 100mL bottle. Haha. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Now I just hope this juice lives up to the hype (or I'm about to have an expensive paper weight).

    those who defend out of love and loyalty, bravo. but the fact remains, Ahlusions ramped up, HHV ramped up, AiV ramped up and they have over 10X to 50X the number of flavors. He has 1. He has a license to print money and the window of opportunity in business is sometimes small. You have to capitalize on success immediately and effectively. And i'm actually rooting for him

    It goes up every 3-5 days, CABBA. Trouble is that it all sells out in 3-5 hours. Ppl generally buy it in 100mL bottles. Also-remember if you're in another timezone, to check at odd hours. For instance, if I am running low-I check usually at 3am(because in the UK it's 8am at 3am here). Today I was late. I checked at 9am'ish and ended up having to get VG heavy(which is fine by me!!)

    And yesterday was my one year cigarette-free vape anniversary!

    Now, if I can only get my hands on a ZNA mod for my birthday in a couple weeks...

    The fact that a vaper like me who has never tried this juice is willing to keep checking a website for stock and order 100mL of a flavor I've never tried says a lot about the reputation of GVC. Can't wait to see if this stuff is as good as I've heard.

    Update & First thoughts.
    100mL of GVC arrived 3 days ago. Standard PG/VG, 12mg nic.
    I am NOT disappointed. Did it live up to the hype? Actually it almost did which is saying a lot for the amount of hype around this flavor. I generally stick to beverage style flavors but this mix is not over-powering or perfumy and I'm quite happy to vape it all day.
    Really nice vapor and a big throat hit, will probably smooth as it continues to steep .
    I will definitely be making good use of this big bottle (I'm already through 2 Kayfun tanks) and would not be shy to order more at some point.
    Easily the best custard I've tasted and one the best juice I have to pair with coffee time. My other vape coffee pair is 5 Pawns Gambit dripped in my eBaron.

    Neither really ^^ GVC is way more eggier than those two, but I guess it's as smooth as Bryce's.

    Ya it's the egg-iness (if that's a word) that I notice. Also the vanilla is not to perfumy it's very natural. On a higher wattage I'm detecting a hint of a spice maybe? It's a lot more subtle than some other gourmet juices, and I like that; it's why I'm able to vape it all day. Mine seems a bit heavier in PG than I would expect from a 50/50 (viscosity and throat hit) but I think it's taste will smooth as it ages.

    I could only find it over seas ,its not made in the U.S? Whats the shipping like ? Probably A month's trip to the states.

    Grant's is made in England. I'm unaware of any stateside vendors. I've read of some U.S. B&M's in the past that sell it but haven't read anything about it in a while. In my experience the shipping from England to the states is fast however it's Customs that hold up the delivery. Mine has been held up at Chicago O'Hare's Customs for at least a week.

    I got my order shipped internationally (to Thailand). Basically 40 pound for the 100mL Bottle and 10 pound for the shipping. I ordered it on February 14th and it arrived at my door on February 24. I didn't have to pay any additional payment on arrival. As others have alluded to the unknown in the whole thing is customs. I asked grant to label it zero nic (which he did and even offered to remove the label for me but I decided to keep it). It's a good juice, a lot of hype to live up to so take everything with a grain of salt.

    At 48.57 pound = $81.00 it's well under the dollar a mL mark for this big bottle. Not bad for a premium juice.

    i finally got a 10 ml. bottle from a small vape shop in Spain I just happened to stumble across. I wanted a small bottle for "research purposes" since I DIY my juices and had what was supposedly the recipe. Got it last month, did some taste tests, color tests, etc., and virtually cloned it. One trick seems to be that he must have a special steeping method, or just lets the batches sit for a good long time. The color is close to caramel, and freshly made it is much lighter, more like a light brown/ tan.
    I think someone posted this in DIY juices forum, but it's simply Capella's Vanilla Custard at mixed with E.M. at 2%. Total ratio +/- 15%. Don't go over that! I go a bit under, around 12, 13% total flavor base. Sometimes I go a few drops higher on the E.M.( I added a few drops of TFA Vanilla Swirl for a bit of complexity on the finish.) Either warm water bath several hours a night for a week or so, or let sit in a cool, dark place with cheesecloth covering the open top, for 2-3 weeks, even longer will soften it more and deepen the color. This is my ADV. Complex, not sweet, and always pleases.
    So, another option if you are not lucky enough to get some today.....

    GVC is so overrated, Goose Juice is much better IMO
