Why are menthol cigarettes being banned in the UK?
Menthol cigarettes are due to be banned in the UK on 20th May 2020. The EU Tobacco Products Directive will restrict the sale of all cigarettes with a “characterising flavour”. As menthol is typically the most common type of flavoured cigarette, the directive has been dubbed the “menthol ban”.
Heated tobacco is exempt from the ban and so HEETS Turquoise and HEETS Blue will still be available to purchase both online and in stores.
