What is the story behind Blue Marble?
It’s a love story. When Danyelle and I started Blue Marble, we were newly dating and the company was focused on full strength ready-to-drink cocktails. Now we have 9 flavors of cocktails, 4 flavors of seltzer’s, gin, vodka and water along with we are now engaged to married. We had both been in medical field all of our lives servicing consumers with products. We never thought about starting a beverage company or building a factory. We simply wanted a great ready to drink cocktail to entertain our friends with. What we found was lots of sugar, watered down, artificial or simply bad tasting products. We were frustrated consumers and wanted “better for you” products and could not find them. We completely reinvented ourselves, learned the industry, did lots of data analysis, and decided we could start something spectacular. The name Blue Marble was a perfect fit for what Danyelle and I believe in. We like to work hard and play hard. You can typically find us on our boat enjoying lots of different water sports. It’s sad to see the destruction happening to our beaches and oceans through single use plastic. Blue Marble represents awareness, clean, and all-natural, just like our beverages. We were donating to charity organizations long before we were generating revenues.
Developing our beverage lines was quite the learning experience. We knew what we wanted and were involved in every aspect of every flavor – all 16! We traveled looking for the best ingredients, we hired PhDs to scale our formulations, and ultimately had to build our own factory to ensure quality and quantities. There was so much more than we expected! The travel is so insane, but we love it! As the faces of Blue Marble, we love being involved with working with our distributors, clients, and with all of the amazing people backing Blue Marble’s success!
Family values, environmental activism, and really great cocktails
Blue Marble is not your average cocktail company. We’re here to change the world while having fun doing it. We are a family business, with family values, supporting global awareness, conservation, and environmental initiatives through our “keep the blue marble blue” program. Our commitment to the environment is as strong as our commitment to bringing you the world’s best tasting cocktails.
Cleaning up our beaches
Several times a year our Blue Marble Cocktails planetary ambassadors, friends, and family go out to beaches, parks and waterways with the sole purpose of cleaning up trash. We hope we can inspire you to do the same. And don’t forget to reward yourself at the end of the day with an ice cold Blue Marble Cocktail!
