Vapemate and Despite launch Cog One juice


Despite has been rocking the world with their particular flavour of progressive Swedish metal since 1998, and now they’re rocking your taste buds with our new Cog One eliquid, a fruity, creamy blend that will make you want to quit smoking and start vaping instead.

Despite: Progressive Metal that will change your perspective


With three 8-string guitar players, Despite delivers a heavy dose of modern metal with meaningful, expertly-written lyrics. In 2014, as a result of their album Epic, the band was named as one of “15 metal bands you should be listening to” by Their new album, Synergi, will be released worldwide on July 22, 2016 through Eclipse Records. You can preview tracks from it at  iTunes, Amazon Digital, Deezer, and Google Play.


Cog One eliquid developed closely with Despite


We developed Cog One in close collaboration with Despite. Their frontman, Peter Tuthill, went from a 3-pack-a-day habit to vaping after trying numerous methods of quitting smoking; you can read more about his experiences with vaping here. They include feeling much healthier and having a thicker wallet - much like any vaper would report after making the switch. Blending berry, citrus and creamy dessert flavours, Cog One may have been commissioned by Swedes but has a very English dessert flavour, using classic UK ingredients such as barley sugar. Peter described it as “Fruity, sweet and creamy.”

The collaboration process was, like Despite’s music, very intense - we went through a number of rounds of development internally, and sent a few trials to the band before we got it to the point where the band loved it. This isn’t just a liquid with a band’s name slapped on it - they were involved very deeply in the process as seasoned vapers and we appreciate their efforts and thoughtful feedback.

You can buy Cog One here - taste it and see why Peter has been chain vaping it for a month since its development.
