Blue Marble is the Best Premium Pre-Mixed Cocktails Producer

Best Premium Pre-Mixed Cocktails Producer 2020

United Kingdom – December 2020

LUXlife magazine announces the winners of the 2020 Food & Drink Awards.
This year has been the harbinger of challenge, and perhaps no more so than for the hospitality industries. Simple things, such as having food traffic, have been far from guaranteed. For many, it’s been a year of ‘worst case scenario’. Something that couldn’t possibly be planned for. However, that’s not to say that 2020 has been completely void of achievements and success. Because, out of the many challenges 2020 has brought to many a threshold, it has also offered an opportunity to adapt in unexpected ways. Businesses have capitalized on uncertainty and wielded impressive reputations and expertise to bring about new achievements. New successes. New growth. It is with that in mind that LUXlife launched this year’s Food and Drink Awards. To celebrate every success, no matter how small they may seem. Commenting on the winners of this year’s awards program, Coordinator Katherine Benton stated: “It’s been a difficult year for the hospitality and food and drink industries. With that, I offer my sincere congratulations to all of those recognized. I hope you have a better and thriving year ahead.”

Mojito Awarded Gold and Ready-To-Drink Cocktail Of The Year.

This year’s 11th annual New York International Spirits Competition was held virtually in New York City. There were 1,200 submissions that included over 30 countries and 60 categories to be judged by working trade buyers from the NYC Metro Area including restauranteurs, sommeliers, retail spirits buyers, distributors, and importers. Being recognized for a premium cocktail right now, amongst other established brands, when the ready-to-drink category is so popular just validates that people want a real cocktail. Blue Marble’s mojito is the right balance of sweet mint, lime juice and ultra-premium vodka. We removed all the fuss so you can just enjoy life.

Great American International Spirits Competition 2020

Great American Spirit Awards

August, 2020

Looking for a vodka that is smooth & silky for sipping or for your favorite cocktail? Then put Blue Marble’s ultra-premium vodka on your radar because the esteemed judging panel at the Great American International Spirits Competition awarded our vodka GOLD for superior taste. It was judged not by how it compares to other spirits in a flight, but on its own merit, presence, balance and character.
This international competition is for all commercial distilleries and spirits producers. The spirits are blindly judged by respected industry Master Distillers, Certified Sprits Educators, Brand Ambassadors, retailers, importers, spirits industry writers and consultants. This was Blue Marble’s first competition participation and we are proud to have been awarded Gold amongst other premium vodka brands.

Great American Spirits International Competition has a charitable give back program called Raise A Glass Foundation. This is a non-profit organization created to help save and improve the lives of adults and children around the world. It would be very difficult if not impossible for a charity to solicit such a collection of award-winning bottles from producers around the world.
They aim to help deserving charities by donating up to thousands of award-winning, unused products post the competition for use at their fundraising galas, auctions and events. As a spirit brand that also gives back, we commend their efforts to make the world a better place.
