A good idea, some trendy patterns, and a well thought out digital strategy got Dylan Jacob in the 30 under 30’s Forbes list. We came across these marble texture bottles and glasses on Instagram, and we thought it was a nice concept, but as we looked further, it revealed as a very interesting business story too.
Dylan Jacob launched BrüMate at 21 in his hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana, in November 2016. The company did $250,000 in sales in the first two months and 2.1M in sales in 2017. Dylan jacob saw a business opportunity: in the United States the Open Container laws regulate or prohibit the existence of open containers of alcohol in certain public areas, that’s why many people carry their drinks in a paper bag. He had a simple goal: help people get the perfect sip of their favorite drink, putting an end to boring drinkware.
We are not sure whether BrüMate, the Company name, derives from Latin brūma, “winter”, (to brumate is a zoological term describing the state of winter torpor of some reptiles), from Vin Brule (Italian for mulled wine), or from Bru (brother) + mate; either way is a very inetresting word pun. The name suggests that the insultaors work both with cold and hot beverages.
