It’s not easy to catch up to Alan Miller, Founder and CEO of Blue Marble. If he isn’t running 200 miles per hour at the helm at Blue Marble, you probably might catch a glimpse of him doing exactly that on racetrack somewhere in the world.

Success is simple to him. It’s about setting a goal and achieving it. He states, “there are so many goals I set when I start a company. The first is the exit strategy. I know is sounds crazy, but I treat it like every race I start. Am I looking to win, set the fastest lap, or just finish in the top 3. Is this going to be an IPO, acquisition, of lifestyle business? Without this goal and destination setting, I could never achieve or arrive at my goal. Success is never about money. It is a loss leader and, in the end, not very satisfying.”

New couples don’t often start new companies shortly after they begin dating, yet that is exactly what Alan Miller and Danyelle Rabine did. Not long after beginning a relationship the new couple founded Blue Marble Cocktails, a ready to drink cocktail brand. And shortly after that Miller founded Blue Marble Productions, Inc. Miller & Rabine have grown Blue Marble Productions and Blue Marble Cocktails into powerhouse companies.

The company’s prosperity should hit even greater heights in the coming years as more individuals around the globe are exposed to the great tasting cocktails available from the brand. But it isn’t just the cocktails that will see the company excel. Its manufacturing facility in Indiana provides even more financial benefits, enabling Blue Marble Cocktails to thrive in the ready to drink cocktail sector. The company produces cocktails, seltzers, vodka, and water. While making RTD cocktails and beverages is Blue Marble’s main focus, the company has branched out into canning products for some of the world’s top beverage businesses thanks to its state-of-the-art facility in Indianapolis, Indiana. The environmentally-focused company is thriving and expects even greater things in the near future.

” I never imagined that the biggest alcohol companies in the world would approach me to make their products. We started off small with 20,000 sq. feet, expanded to 32,000 sq. feet and now are in our new facility which is almost 200,000 sq. feet and we are already in the middle of expanding to 300,000 sq. feet. Companies found out just how good and complicated our drinks are and trust us to make theirs. I could not be prouder of what we have built.

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.”

2019 WORLDS BEST PREMIXED COCKTAIL

2019 WORLDS BEST PREMIXED COCKTAIL

2019 WORLD’S BEST PREMIXED COCKTAIL

WPA best premium cocktail

London, UK

The 2019 World Premix Award winners have now been announced and new comer Blue Marble Cocktails from the USA has taken the over-all win with the title World’s Best PREMIXED Cocktail and overall Best Style win.

Following the final tasting in London, Blue Marble’s Bloody Mary beat out global submissions and clearly showed you don’t need to reinvent the wheel when it comes to great tasting cocktails, you just need to perfect it. With the perfect balance of robust tomato juice, premium vodka, saltiness and heat, it pleases the most discerning Bloody Mary aficionado. In the ever more diversified spirits industry, taste is not everything though. A product these days needs to be able to stand out of the sheer crowd on the shelve saying ‘Buy me’ and Blue Marble’s Coconut Island says exactly that and walks away with World’s Best Style award. The style design is clean, inviting, and says “you’re on vacation anywhere anytime”.

Alan Miller, founder and CEO of Blue Marble Cocktails had to say this about the announcement, “I am absolutely stunned and honored. The premixed cocktail market is extremely competitive and as the new company competing with the smallest to the biggest, I just can’t say enough how proud I am of our team. My family and I were frustrated consumers who wanted something better, premium, and without all of the chemicals, dyes and preservatives we saw in other premixed cocktails. 3 years ago, we didn’t know a thing about the industry or how to make them. 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. We are honored that some of the biggest clients in the world serve our drinks and being named World’s Best is icing on the cake.”

The World Premix Awards are the global awards selecting the very best in all internationally recognized styles of Premix. Presented by TheDrinksReport.com, the world’s Number 1 online resource for drinks professionals, the World Premix Awards select, reward and promote the world’s best Premix to consumers and trade across the globe. The result was the new winner of the World Premix Awards: 2019 World’s Best PreMixed Cocktail as well as 2019 Best Style Winner, both awarded to Blue Marble Cocktails.
