Blue Marble is the Best Premium Pre-Mixed Cocktails Producer

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.”

Las Vegas Global Spirits Awards announces the Gold medal winners in dozens of categories. Hundreds of spirits from around the world were judged by a prominent group of beverage professionals at the 3rd Annual Global Spirit Award competition held at the Palace Station July 17-19, 2019. Blue Marble Cocktails walked away with another gold adding to its already heavy award-winning lineup.

Las Vegas Global Spirits Awards offers both established and emerging beverage brands from around the world the unique opportunity of showcasing their product to some of the most influential members of the beverage industry.

With Blue Marble Cocktails only being on the market for a little over a year now the product truly speaks for itself beating out tons of highly established brands for the coveted title.

“For these brands to win gold is a huge compliment not only to their products, but also represents their commitment to creating excellent Spirits,” says Las Vegas Spirit Awards CEO and Executive Director, Eddie Rivkin.” Every year the quality (and quantity) of entries has improved significantly. I can’t wait to see what happens in 2020, it’s going to be amazing,” says Rivkin.
Alan Miller, founder and CEO of Blue Marble Cocktails, had this to say about the new win, “Every award is an amazing accomplishment being a family owned and operated company. Myself, my fiancé, my sons, and their significant others all work for this company, so every win validates that you do not have to come from this industry; you just need to put in the hard work, long hours, lots of passion, and good quality ingredients so the product is remarkable against others. We are so honored for this gold medal addition from the Las Vegas Global Spirit Awards.”

ABOUT THE LAS VEGAS GLOBAL SPIRIT AWARDS

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.

BLUE MARBLE HAD EVERYONE BRINGING THEIR “A GAME” AT THE 2019 YPCI CHARITY GOLF OUTING

YPCI Golf Charity

Indianapolis, IN

The YPCI Charity Golf Outing at Eagle Creek Golf Course was on May 31st. It was a great time networking with new friends while giving back to the community as YPCI raised funds for the Hawthorne Community Center. This is the largest young professional golf outing in the state of Indiana. With sponsors on every hole to interact with over 100 players were out to enjoy the event.

Through fundraising and the raffling off over $1200 worth of prizes YPCI was able to raise over $2,000 for Gleaners Food Bank in 2018. This year YPCI had an even larger dollar goal to raise money for a deserving charity on the west side of Indianapolis. They sold mulligans, string, and raffle tickets to help surpass the goal of $5,000 in charitable donations.

Blue Marble Cocktails was on the green serving its delicious cocktails featuring the flavors of: Cosmo, Bloody Mary, Marble-Rita, and Moscow Mule. Alan Miller, fellow Hoosier and founder of Blue Marble Cocktails said, “It is an honor to be able to give back and be involved in these local community events. YPCI was a great turnout of incredible people. To be able to raise funds for this deserving charity in Indiana feels good and is just one way we try to give back to the blue marble.”

About YPCI
It all started when a group of YPs back in 2000 had a vision to connect professionals and promote the value of networking at an earlier point in one’s career. Back then, there were around 30 members. A year later, the group officially took on the name “YPCI” and quickly grew to over 100 members. YPCI is all about helping create the brightest business future for central Indiana as possible. This is best accomplished through fostering positive business relationships and professional opportunities as young professionals. For more information visit YPCI.

About the Hawthorne Center
The mission of the Hawthorne Community Center is to provide or facilitate services and programs that meet the economic, educational, financial, social, recreational and civic needs of the entire Hawthorne Community. The Hawthorne Community is located between Downtown Indianapolis and Speedway. For more information visit Hawthorne Center.
