It’s always fun catching up with the crew from Dr. Mike’s Rad Vapors. My previous chats with CEO Strek Gauthier, COO Dr. Mike Gauthier, and mixologist Ricky Medina are some of my favorite vaping interviews on RPadTV. Recently, I caught up with them at Viper Vapor LA to learn more about the new flavors in the Dr. Mike’s Rad Vapors lineup, how the company comes up with its e-liquid names, and juice flavors on the horizon. The three new flavors are:
- Dragon: A delicious blend of mangosteen and dragon fruit. As a big fan of mangosteen, I…accidentally vaped an entire bottle of the juice before filming b-roll for this interview. Ha!
- Fury: A banana-milk medley that will appeal to fans of creamy fruit blends.
- Fortune: A natural lychee e-liquid geared towards vapors that prefer a fresh lychee taste over canned or candied versions of the fruit.
Check out the clip above to learn more about these e-liquids, as well as the nutty flavors Dr. Mike’s Rad Vapors is working on. Special thanks to Tiffany for letting us hang out at Viper Vapor LA!
It was awesome catching up with the Dr. Mike’s Rad Vapors crew at Vapetoberfest 2013. I had a fun interview with CEO Strek Gauthier and COO Dr. Mike Gauthier at ECC 2013. This time around, Dr. Mike’s Rad Vapors mixologist Ricky Medina joined the chat. The crew talked up its two new flavors — Delight and Bliss. Delight is a unique pear e-liquid that uses five ingredients to approximate the taste of a juicy pear, including the skin and core. Bliss is a blend of peach, watermelon, and tea that’s only available once a year.
Check out the clip above to learn more about these e-liquids, hear about Dr. Mike’s Rad Vapors next flavor (dragon fruit and mangosteen!), and learn what vaping gear the crew uses.
Dr. Mike’s Rad Vapors makes some really inventive juices and has a cool story behind. At ECC 2013, I caught up with Dr. Mike’s Rad Vapors CEO Strek Gauthier and COO Dr. Mike Gauthier. The company offers some unique combinations like Honey-Q (honeydew and cucumber) and Chocolate Bacon. The story of Dr. Mike’s Rad Vapors starts with a traumatic event; Strek had a stroke due to cigarette smoking. He changed his lifestyle and turned to vaping. His father is a doctor with extensive aerospace experience. Strek worked for his father in aerospace for years. Father and son have teamed up together for Dr. Mike’s Rad Vapors.
In the interview, Strek and Dr. Mike talk about the company’s history, the Dr. Mike’s Rad Vapors approach to making juices, the sophisticated branding that was inspired by wine, and more. It was great meeting them and getting to learn more about the company’s juices, but to be honest, I was biased going into the meeting. Anyone that’s enough of a genius to combine chocolate and bacon is cool in my book.
