About CRAFT VAPERY:
CRAFT VAPERY was founded by a team of seasoned entrepreneurs with an unrelenting passion for vaping. It was this passion, however, that also led to frustration with what appeared to be the typical vaping experience: a daunting, confusing, time consuming, and costly process that required far too much education, research, trial, error, and waste.

There had to be a better way. Armed with highly complementary skills and perspectives, a wealth of vaping industry expertise, and a fierce commitment to quality, CRAFT VAPERY’s founders set out to build a company they wished had existed when they started vaping. Thus CRAFT VAPERY was born, fulfilling its flagship mission to continuously innovate and improve the vaping experience. For more information please visit the CRAFT VAPERY website.

The next installment of the CRAFT CAST has arrived!

In this episode, Josh welcomes Lonnie, David, and Chris – creators of the Vape Summit III Overall Best in Show E-liquid “The Originals” – into the studio to discuss their newest line, as well as how the three veteran vapers came together to re-invent ultra-premium e-liquids.

Lonnie (The Standard / Saveurvape), and Chris (Electric Lotus / formerly of Mr. Good Vape) discuss how they met and got David (Black Label / Saveurvape) involved in this new collaboration that ended up winning the Overall Best in Show award at this year’s Summit. The three discuss how they came up with the juice line, what it takes to be a true mixologist in 2015, and what it takes to build a brand in today’s competitive marketplace. They also discuss the current state of the “vape scene” and how their collective history helped to define the industry as we know it today. On the lighter side, we also learn why Lonnie is never allowed to drive a forklift… and we mean absolutely never.

Giveaway: One lucky winner will receive the entire line of The Originals in 30ml bottles in the nicotine strength of their choice. Listen or watch the episode to get the details on how to enter! One lucky listener will also win a free three bottle box from CRAFT VAPERY. Make sure to comment on this post to be eligible to win.
