After 2 logo tournaments and over 600 iterations by artists around the world, our logo and word marks were selected. Ram gave the artists the vision: "The logo should be a B.E., an infinity symbol, hearts, represent feminine fertility, and if possible, a curly mustache." Winning submissions for both the Logo AND the Word mark (as well as later Elixir label designs) goes to the incredible artist and human Kent Labadie

Chocolate, Chilled. This bottle helped me realize I never again wanted to snowboard without Chocolate Lover. It helps me rip like I'm 16 again!
Ram's uncle Ted drank Lustre for the first time and made some freaky gingerbread cookies. Aunt Deb wasn't quite as excited about the experience...
