THE GREAT ALASKAN RACE MOVIE PREMIERE

Los Angeles, California – October 17, 2019

Director, Writer, and Producer Brain Presley bring us “The Great Alaskan Race”. The movie opens in theaters on October 25th, 2019. Based on a true story, In 1925’s historic great race of mercy, a group of brave mushers travels 700 miles to save the small children of Nome, Alaska from a deadly epidemic. The LA Premiere of The Great Alaskan Race was at the Arclight Hollywood and Blue Marble Cocktails was a sponsor on this incredible night. Blue Marble was on the step and repeat that all attendees posed for pictures and spoke to press along with being served at the afterparty.

The Great Alaskan Race is a based on a true story about a race in the 1925’s to get anti-toxin to Nome, Alaska to save all the children who were infected from dying. Leonhard Seppula and his 12-year-old lead dog Togo did an unprecedented 330 miles out of the 700 total in 5 days to get the serum and transport it back to Nome in -80 degree weather. Dogs and Mushers are told to never run past -40 below because it will kill a dog not to mention one should never run a 12-year-old dog in those conditions. Leonhard Seppula showed bravery and selflessness in hopes of saving his entire town. Most of the stories that people have read about this race have been about Balto, the lead dog that took the serum the last 50 miles to the town of Nome. This is the first time that the story of Togo and Balto share the heroic efforts that saved all the children from dying. This was really about the bravery of groups of mushers from around Alaska that were willing to sacrifice their dogs and themselves for the greater good of humanity.

Alan Miller, CEO and founder of Blue Marble Cocktails said, “We are honored to be a part of this movie premiere and share our family owned product with these amazing actors, producers, and crew. Being a part of prestigious events like this one shows to ourselves and our consumers the ultra-premium quality that we put out in every single one of our product lines.”

We simply knew if we used the best ingredients, we could make the best cocktails. With lots of research, passion, trial and error, and of course a big dose of fun, we built our own state-of-the-art factory from the ground up, have national distribution, and have worked as a family to share our success in donating our time and money to keep our earth, the blue marble, blue.

SETTING RECORDS & BREAKING BOUNDARIES

The 2019 SIP Awards is changing the way spirit brands reach consumers
Irvine, CA – May 28, 2019

In 2009 a small group set out to tear down the walls between consumers and the innovative brands that make up the life’s blood of the spirits industry. They saw a marketplace suffocated by antiquated status-quo and insider-dominated accolades. By cutting out the middleman, they sought to bring the spirits to the people. Enter the Spirits International Prestige (SIP) Awards; the only international spirits competition judged by consumers. One of the product consumers are missing out on is Blue Marble Cocktails. Blue Marble Cocktails walked away with one of SIP Awards coveted medals for their Mojito. Blue Marble’s Mojito is made with ultra-premium rum mixed with all-natural lime juice, and a hint of mint. The judges clearly agreed that this cocktail needs to be tried.

Alan Miller, founder and CEO of Blue Marble stated, “Our Mojito is the impeccable mix ultra-premium rum mixed with all-natural lime juice, and a hint of mint. It is perfect for the beach, by the pool, at a resort, the possibilities are endless. Some of the biggest companies, hotels, and arenas in the world serve our mojito. Myself and the Blue Marble team could not be more proud.”

“We started the SIP Awards because we believe that spirits should be judged by those who enjoy them, and not just by those who have a vested interest or bias in selling them” – SIP Awards Founder & CEO Paul Hashemi.

The SIP Awards 146 judges are selected to ensure demographic diversity and screened for any potential spirit brand affiliation. A proprietary algorithm is used to mitigate any palate inconsistencies. The results for the amazing diversity of entries, ranging anywhere from $2 a bottle to $1,600 a bottle, are judged specifically by industry outsiders and one of those brands was Blue Marble Cocktails.

“It’s a way for brands to test the market without breaking the bank. Accolades like those handed out at the SIP Awards signify to consumers what they are missing out on; The first thing consumers do when the results are announced is look up the winners and search out the products they haven’t tried. It’s really a win-win on both sides”- Industry Insider George Manska, Founder of Neat Glass.

The SIP Awards have uniquely positioned themselves in an exploding spirits industry as the preeminent path for brands to reach their target consumers to get effective brand exposure, along with real, unbiased feedback from those who will be making the ultimate votes with their wallets; the consumers. As the only blind tasting competition of its kind, the SIP Awards offers a fair platform for top brands to showcase their products to their most discerning audience.

BLUE MARBLE COCKTAILS EMBRACES, ENCOURAGES EARTH DAY ACTION

Beach Clean-Up, Indiana Recycle Run, Pacific Garbage Patch Among Initiatives
Newport Beach, California – April 19, 2018

Blue Marble Cocktails, maker of all-natural, ultra-premium, ready-to-drink, pre-mixed cocktails, has taken on several Earth Day initiatives aimed at restoring and maintaining a healthy environment while encouraging consumers to do the same.

Blue Marble Cocktails makes 9 ready-to-drink flavors that feature ultra-premium distilled spirits, all-natural ingredients, no artificial sweeteners, dyes or preservatives, and come in environmentally friendly and recyclable packaging.

The company will lead a contingent of employees and friends to hit the beach in Newport Beach, Calif. from Noon to 4 p.m. on Earth Day – Sunday, April 22, 2018 – to clean up refuse that would otherwise be washed out to sea. Clean ups such as this are targeted at reducing the size of the “Pacific Garbage Patch,” a massive collection of floating plastic debris in the Pacific Ocean that is larger than the size of Texas. The Pacific Garbage Patch contains 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic, which is equal to 250 pieces for every human on earth.

Blue Marble Cocktails has produced an informational video highlighting the scope and threat of the Pacific Garbage Patch, which encourages the public to become aware and take action. One key concern is that the plastic breaks down over time and is ingested by ocean life, thereby making its way into the food chain.

“The Pacific Garbage Patch is one of the most tangible examples of how our product choices can impact the environment,” notes Founder and Planetary Ambassador, Alan Miller. “It’s an out-of-sight, out-of-mind issue that we hope to help bring to the forefront and spur action to solve this growing crisis.”

Help us keep the blue marble blue on Earth Day, and every day, by doing your part.

BEVERAGE MANUFACTURER MOVING HEADQUARTERS

Indianapolis, Indiana – January 9, 2018

Blue Marble Cocktails, a provider of all-natural, ultra-premium, ready-to-drink, pre-mixed cocktails and spirits, announced plans to relocate its Oregon-based headquarters and manufacturing operations to Indianapolis, creating up to 51 new, high-wage jobs by 2019.

“Indiana’s pro-growth business climate continues to be recognized from coast to coast as companies like Blue Marble Cocktails and Spirits choose our state for growth,” said Jim Schellinger, Indiana Secretary of Commerce. “Our skilled workforce, central location and competitive environment create a winning solution for small and large businesses looking to grow. We extend a sincere Hoosier welcome as Blue Marble Cocktails moves from Oregon to Indiana – the best state in the Midwest and the fifth in the nation for doing business.”

The company is investing more than $9 million to relocate its headquarters and manufacturing operations from Portland, Oregon, to Indianapolis, with plans to initially lease and renovate an 18,000-square-foot facility at 6008 Corporate Way. The new facility, which began production this month, will house Blue Marble Cocktails’ office space, show room and its mixing and production warehouse. With the company’s growth in Indiana, Blue Marble Cocktails will be able to produce nearly 3 million cases, which includes 24 cans per case, of its all-natural, ultra-premium, ready-to-drink cocktails and spirits. The company plans to build a brand new production site in the future, and has already begun its search for a permanent location in central Indiana.

Blue Marble Cocktails, which was founded by a native Hoosier, Alan Miller, employs eight full-time associates in Indiana and is currently hiring for brand ambassadors, operation managers and quality control supervisors, with new positions expected to offer average wages nearly double the state’s average wage.
