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

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.
