Age Verification

Why Do I Need To Prove My Age?

In the UK it is illegal to sell electronic cigarettes and any vaping product that contains nicotine, (eg. patches or gum etc) or products that can be used to deliver nicotine to a person under the age of 18. So, to be able to comply with this law we are required to verify that all customers are 18 or older. 

By placing an order with UK ECIG STORE, you are agreeing to allow us to confirm your age.
