JOHNSON CREEK — Three years ago, Christian Berkey had a good job and a pack-a-day or more smoking habit.
He took a chance on an e-Cigarette … and it changed his life.
Berkey purchased his electronic cigarette – which produces a water vapor – from a Chinese company. He quickly became an avid e-smoker, but was still disappointed when it came to taste. Much of that stemmed from the fact that most e-cigarette producers focused on the hardware, rather than the software.
“It was almost an afterthought,” Berkey says. “But you need the software to make the hardware work.”
After an internet search for American smoke juice producers came up empty, Berkey decided to do it himself. He cashed out his 401k and set to work creating a better smoke juice.

If the terms “electronic cigarette” and “e-cig” are new to you, don’t worry, you’re not alone. It’s an alternative to smoking and a relatively new technology, but it is a simple one: a battery powered device that replicates the act of smoking. These devices are small and resemble an actual cigarette, only unlike typical nicotine inhalers that have surfaced over the years the e-cig actually produces a smoke-like vapor. An atomizer vaporizes nicotine infused e-liquid, which is triggered by a micro sensor every time you inhale from the e-cig, giving you lush plumes of white vapor. No lighters, matches or flame of any kind is required to enjoy an e-cig, since the vaporization is all micro-technology contained within the unit. However, to further simulate the sensation of smoking a real cigarette, a bright led light is built into the tip of each e-cig that “ignites” with each puff.
