Jimmy Psycho Experiment Joins the Deadhead Rum Family
The world’s only spook/sci-fi, punk-rock lounge act joins the Deadhead Rum family as a partner and brand ambassador for Deadhead Rums.
Jimmy and the Deadhead Rum family have taken their longtime collaboration and respect for each other to a higher level of commitment. Jimmy is joining the Deadhead Rum family as an equity partner and brand ambassador in the state of Ohio for Deadhead Rum.

Deadhead Rum is hitching up the Bamboozle travel trailer and rum-running across state lines for the rest of 2021 celebrating its 10th Anniversary as a company with the release of its 10-year-old limited edition rum. This rum is as smooth as a baby’s butt having rested in American oak with Chiapas oak for the past 10 years. It is rich, full-bodied with a whiskey-style nose of stone fruit, maple syrup, and vanillin. The flavor is intense. Real intense.
Jimmy will be promoting the introduction of Deadhead Rum and Deadhead Dark Chocolate Rum in his home state of Ohio through sponsored performances, and will be part of the Deadhead Coast-to-Coast Anniversary celebrations in New York and California.
Not only will the celebrations feature musical performances by Jimmy Psycho but also Deadhead 10-year Limited Edition Rum tastings, cocktails curated by master mixologist Michael Carbajal, fun games, sweet prizes, and awesome limited edition merch designed by Tom “Thor” Thordarson.
