Where does the story of Five Pawns start? First there was the name, inspired by the sight of drip tips and bottles set out before the makers of this e juice. They were reminiscent of chess pieces. The purpose of their own brand of e juice, however, would be more like that of the pawn as identified in the dictionary and in their short bio:

“Someone or something who is used or manipulated to further another person’s purposes. We thought of our liquid much like the ‘pawn’ [which] moves only forward and is often sacrificed (much like our liquid).”

Five Pawns started out with five e juice flavors, each one unique in the field partly owing to their complexity. Another line of five plus a separate flavor and a reserve variety that’s hard to get your hands on have all been added in recent years.

The objective at Five Pawns is to serve customers, “empower people” to vape quality products, and encourage others such as staff, investors, and customers to partner in something worthwhile. They welcome new customers to a growing family based in California.

How They Make Five Pawns

E juice is blended in micro-batches by hand, about 500 bottles at a time, each bottle numbered. 30-ml bottles contain 0 to 18 mg nicotine per/ml. The second group of five were designed to reflect the five basic tastes: bitter, sour, salty, sweet, and umami or savory.

Insignia Series

A sample pack from their original series of e liquids, 4 ml each, costs $23.50. These are Grandmaster, Castle Long, Gambit, Bowden’s Mate, and Queenside. The name which drew my attention right away was “Gambit,” defined as a sacrificial move in order to make gains later on, such as giving up one’s pawn (in chess or in any “game”) to win the game ultimately.

This could also be described as a big risk, the sort taken by firms like Five Pawns from California who invested time and money into the development of a company they didn’t know would take off the way it has. The risk has paid off: Five Pawns is one of the most highly-rated e juices in America.

As a flavor, Gambit tastes like apple pie baked in a flaky crust, drizzled with caramel and topped with French Vanilla ice cream plus a spoonful of whipped cream without sugar.

Mixology MMXIV Series

These flavors, while based on the taste profiles mentioned above, also take inspiration from a high-class cocktail bar where the bartender only serves aged whiskey and exceptional bourbon. Where do their names come from?

Absolute Pin is a chess move in which the king and another piece are locked together. If the other piece moves, the king becomes vulnerable. As a flavour, this is a mixture of Irish Cream, caramel, and cinnamon with absinthe: unusual, to say the least.

Standards at Five Pawns

A video is available on one vendor’s website showing just how rigid the standards at Five Pawns really are. This is no counter-top operation in the back of someone’s garage or well-scrubbed kitchen.

Five Pawns employs factory-type organization and machinery to ensure the best and safest results for their customers. Safety measures include the use of child-proof caps and natural flavor extraction, one of many reasons you will taste the difference when you vape with Five Pawns.
