Meet Really Bad Rums – Three Medal Winner

https://bartenderspiritsawards.com/en/blog/news-3/meet-really-bad-rums-three-medal-winner-141.htm

Really Bad Rums by Doc Brown Enterprises took home three medals at the 2019 Bartender’s Spirits Awards.

USA’s Doc Brown Enterprises went home with two silver medals for it’s Really Bad Rum (Silver) and Really Bad Rum (Dark) at the 2019 Bartender’s Spirits Awards that took place in San Francisco.


LET’S CONNECT ON LINKEDIN


They also grabbed a bronze medal for their Really Bad Rum (Spiced).

Doc Brown Enterprises Inc. was founded by Lee Doc Brown and his wife Susan. The two started out with making rum cakes, which received raving reviews from family, friends and strangers – which pushed the Browns to get into the cake business. The two realised that instead of promoting the brand of rum they used in their cakes, they would craft their own rum brand that would enhance the flavor of their cakes and offer rum for everyone to enjoy – Thus, the Really Bad Rum trio was born.

REALLY BAD RUM (DARK)

The Really Bad Rum (Dark) is known to be Doc’s flagship rum. The Dark edition of the Really Bad Rum has a velvety smooth taste with aromas of muted oak and vanilla – making it a unique, full-bodied rum. At 80 proof, this rum is a master blend whose flavors are enhanced by distilling twice and aging in oak casks.

REALLY BAD RUM (SILVER)

Known as the ‘little sister’ of Doc’s Really Bad rums, the Silver edition is a light, dry-bodied old school classic spirit. With an 80 proof, it’s twice distilled and gluten-free(YAY). The heat in the rum delivers a premium, fresh, smooth, Florida cane flavour – which makes it the perfect rum for mixing.

REALLY BAD RUM (SPICED)

The Spiced edition of Really Bad Rums is a 70 proof rum, infused with classic spices, which gives the rum a golden hue. It graces the drinker with warm-bodied heat, with hints of vanilla and peppercorn that are blended with a pinch of honey to warm the palate.

The work of creating rum started in 2014 with a distillery in South Florida, where they crafted three rum formulas, namely – Really Bad Rum Dark, Really Bad Rum Silver, and Really Bad Rum Spiced.

They then used their range of Really Bad Rum to create a smoked barbeque sauce, named Really Bad Driftwood Smoked Barbecue Sauce. r. The product line links old family recipes with new, meticulously crafted rums and rum recipes for rum connoisseurs to take their taste buds on an unforgettable journey.

“Based on our positive reviews which are a real crowd pleaser and the mad science presentation of Really Bad Rum, Rum Cakes, and BBQ Sauce marketing, we continue to drive our integrated marketing plan targeting the best opportunities to share the “Really Bad” brand with the world and beyond” said the Browns.

“Our goal is to drive awareness and interest in the brand as a whole and knowing there is no marketing strategy or advertising placement more effective than a personal testimonial, word of mouth endorsements by the public sharing their “Really Bad” memorable experience” they added.

The Bartenders Spirits Awards, organized by the Beverage Trade Network is the leading spirits competition in the USA that rates the spirits with the focus of the on-premise industry.

Doc Brown Really Bad Rum (Dark) – At 80 proof, their flagship dark rum is exquisitely smooth, handcrafted, artisan rum, perfect for sipping neat, or on the rocks. Masterfully blended, this rum has an exceptional flavour profile enhanced by distilling twice and aging in oak casks. Its silky smooth taste, with rich aromas of muted oak and hints of vanilla, makes for unique full-bodied rum. A smooth finish with spice and oak flavours will linger pleasantly, enriching the rich and flavourful experience for the mature palate.

 

 

“SPICED” RUM

Doc Brown Really Bad “Spiced” Rum – Branded “spiced” since that’s just what it is! At 70 proof, their spiced rum is infused with traditional classic spices giving this rum its golden hue. Their spiced recipe has a smooth, warm-bodied heat, with hints of vanilla and peppercorn that are harmonized with a touch of honey which warm the palate. Doc Brown’s Really Bad Spiced Rum is intensely satisfying on the rocks, or is the perfect companion for your favourite tropical drinks and colas.

“SILVER” RUM

The little sister of Doc’s Really Bad rums, Silver is a very clean, light, dry-bodied old school classic spirit that was born to be what it is: just rum. Twice distilled and gluten free. Its moderate balance of heat delivers a premium, fresh, smooth, Caribbean cane flavor to cocktails, making this a perfect spirit for mixing. At 80 proof, and with a signature dry freshness, this handcrafted, artisan pure rum is very similar to Vodka. It is ideal for Bloody Marys, Cape Coders and Martini’s as well as rum punches, Tiki drinks, and elegant cocktails. Try it Doc believes you will agree.

About Doc Brown’s Really Bad Rum

After years of rave reviews of their moist, rum “infused” rum cakes from friends, family and strangers alike, the Browns decided to get into the cake business. Doc Brown Enterprises Inc. was founded by Lee “Doc” Brown and his wife Susan of 30 years. The two realized rather than promote the rum brand used in their cake, they would craft their own brand of rum that would maximize the flavor in their cakes, and offer a product of superior taste for all to enjoy.

In 2014 work had begun with a distillery in South Florida, they crafted three rum formulas. Doc Brown’s Really Bad Rum, dark, spiced and silver were born! They then used their Really Bad Rum to develop Really Bad Driftwood Smoked Barbecue Sauce, a sweet, mildly smoky-flavored sauce with a hint of Doc’s signature rum flavor. The product line links old family recipes with new, meticulously crafted rums and rum recipes for rum connoisseurs to take their taste buds on an unforgettable journey.

To set our products aside from all others besides taste and value, it’s all about the name. “Really Bad” in today’s society the public knows that bad can mean good. No other brand has indulged in this concept of marketing until now. The success of our brand is predicated on this knowledge of the people who are ready and willing to make a difference and contribute to the “Really Bad” brand.

Based on our positive reviews which are a real crowd pleaser and the mad science presentation of Really Bad Rum, Rum Cakes, and BBQ Sauce marketing, we continue to drive our integrated marketing plan targeting the best opportunities to share the “Really Bad” brand with the world and beyond.

A series of strategically targeted marketing launches using online ads, along with public relations, social media efforts will be an important part of our marketing plan.
Our creative elements of each marketing tool are in the mix and are consistent with an upscale and cohesive “Really Bad” brand identity.

Our goal is to drive awareness and interest in the brand as a whole and knowing there is no marketing strategy or advertising placement more effective than a personal testimonial, word of mouth endorsements by the public sharing their “Really Bad” memorable experience.

Doc Brown’s Really Bad Rum was a big hit at the 2016 Miami Rum Festival, we made a huge impression with our exhibit/look and marketing blitz, according to the people selling the venders rum products at the show we were #2 in sales. We had great review from all that stopped by the exhibit. As a result I am in talks with a distribution companies from France, South Africa and Canada.

REALLY BAD RUM CAKE Really Good Trademark?

On July 31st, a Massachusetts corporation called Doc Brown Enterprises, Inc. filed a federal trademark application for REALLY BAD RUM CAKE as it relates to, quite simply, “cakes.” The applicant isn’t using the mark yet, but has an intention to do so in the near future.

This is either a great trademark or a not so great trademark, depending on the quality of the applicant’s cakes. Section 2(e)(1) of the Trademark Act prohibits registration on the Principal Register of new trademarks that are “merely descriptive.” Section 1209.01(b) of the TMEP states that a mark is considered merely descriptive “if it describes an ingredient, quality, characteristic, function, feature, purpose, or use of the specified goods or services.”

On the other hand, arbitrary words and phrases are great trademarks. Section 1209.01(a) of the TMEP defines an arbitrary mark as a mark that “comprise[s] words that are in common linguistic use but, when used to identify particular goods or services, do not suggest or describe a significant ingredient, quality, or characteristic of the goods or services…”

So, depending upon whether the applicant’s cakes are really good or really bad, the filed mark either describes a quality or characteristic of the specified goods (making it merely descriptive) or does not describe a quality or characteristic of the goods (possibly making it arbitrary). At any rate, it is a perplexing (or genius?) marketing choice by the applicant.

So which is it? I guess we need to wait and taste the applicant’s goods to find out.

Update 1/19/2018 – turns out, I recently had the opportunity to try the applicant’s rum cake! Despite the name, it is not “Really Bad” but in fact really good. Guess it isn’t merely descriptive after all..

Five New Rums to Try From the Miami Rum Renaissance Festival

Tuesday, April 19, 2016 at 11 a.m.

By Laine Doss

The eighth-annual Rum Renaissance Festival was filled with pirates, tiki aficionados, and the titular libation.

The best part of the yearly fest is the ability to sample new rums from far-off locales that aren’t yet available in Miami. Some rum producers head to the show in the hopes of catching the eyes and palates of distributors eager to find interesting additions to their portfolios. Others have a deal in place and are looking to introduce their rums to the industry and the public to garner an early fan base. Of all the rums, there are always some standouts. Here are five of the most interesting rums at the festival that you’ll be able to find in Miami now or in the coming weeks.

  1. Doc Brown’s Really Bad Rum

    Here’s a little clarification: This rum is actually good. What’s bad is how you act after you’ve had a few, according to owner Lee Brown, who wears a lab coat in keeping with the spirit’s doctor/mad-scientist theme. Doc Brown’s comes in silver and spiced, but it’s the dark rum that’s worth adding to your collection. Aged in oak casks, this variety has lots of spice and vanilla notes and does double-duty as a drizzle over ice cream for a decadent dessert (as served by “shot” girls at the fest). The company is awaiting Miami distribution, and the rum should be in stores in a few weeks. For now, order rum cakes and barbecue sauce at reallybadrum.com.

Final Day of Judging and Three Great Meetings

Bahama Bob Leonard

Doc Brown’s Really Bad Rum is our host for the lunch meeting. This is a rum from America’s traditional home of the rum business, Billerica, Massachusetts.  Doc Brown’s Really Bad Rum gets its name from a 16th century sailor and elixir maker that made elixir’s that would cure anything and based on rum.

Today Doc Brown’s is producing “Really Bad Rum Cake, Bar B Que Sauce, and rum. All of these are well done and very tasty.  The Dark Rum was their first, a very rich, sweet and smoky, with notes of orange.  The White is a basic honest white rum with nothing added.  Clean and perfect for creating your favorite cocktails.  The third is a spiced rum, based on a two year old rum with notes of vanilla, pepper, honey and clove.  Good balance and not over done.
Doc Brown’s Rums will be great as they become available in more places.  They are actively searching out distributors so they can be gotten in more places.  Their BBQ sauce and rum cakes are really bad good as well.

Finally It's Good to Be "Really Bad"®
