Northern California – September 27, 2019
Blue Marble Seltzers was selected as a winning product line in the retail category of “Premium Ready-To-Drink Seltzers In Cans.”
Their submissions in this product category, Ultra-Premium Spiked Seltzers: Pure Love, Citrus Joy, Berry Bliss and Tropical Retreat were all judged superior in Northern California by a panel of Masters of Taste selected by Chefs In America.
The protocols of “triple blind” judging include the following ground rules to ensure accurate and fair judging results.
Evaluators do not know:
1. Who the manufacturer is
2. What the product variety or appellation is
3.What the other evaluators’ scores and comments are during evaluation
The American Masters Of Taste judging panel stated that, “These Ready-To-Drink Vodka-based seltzers in cans, continue to demonstrate Blue Marble’s commitment to creating flavorful, well executed, refreshing, low calorie cocktails for people to conveniently enjoy wherever.”
Although panelists do not see the product packaging prior to the evaluation, they commented afterwards that the sleek, narrow 12 ounce cans with attractive graphics also add to the visual appeal of Blue Marble’s product presentation.
The judging was part of the on-going U.S.A. Taste Championships and U.S.A. Beverage Championships founded in 1986 with the establishment of Chefs In America, whose professional culinary board members gather weekly to conduct taste tests on a myriad of foodservice and retail grocery products.
Blue Marble Ultra-Premium Seltzers was declared a 2019 U.S.A. Taste Champion and 2019 U.S.A. Beverage Champion.
