Blue Marble Vodka

Vodka

  • 92 points, Excellent, Highly Recommend
  • Great Value Award
  • TASTING NOTE: Vivid and clean on the nose, which is awash in hints of white currant, citrus oil, peach pit, and white flowers. The palate is mineral and crisp, with slight touches of biscuit dough and black pepper which last on the tongue.

Blue Marble Cocktails

Greyhound Cocktail

Greyhound

  • 90 points, Excellent, Highly Recommend
  • Great Value Award
  • TASTING NOTE: This is a tropical, juicy, and flavorful cocktail. The flavor of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice is perfectly matched by the sweetness and natural tartness. The touch of bitterness adds complexity and balances the luscious profile of this summery drink.
Mojito Cocktail

Mojito

  • 89 points, Very Good, Strong Recommendation
  • TASTING NOTE: Abundantly minty and green fruited on the nose with hints of apple, lime zest, cucumber, and honeydew melon. Salty and sweet at the same time, lime juice and mint are dominating on the palate with a slight spritz which makes it very refreshing.
Screwdriver Cocktail

Screwdriver

  • 89 points, Very Good, Strong Recommendation
  • TASTING NOTE: Perfect for brunch or a sunny-day picnic, this is a refreshing combination of fresh orange and a clean vodka, resulting in a rich and quenching cocktail that will likely disappear before the ice has melted.
Vodka Soda Cocktail

  • 88 points, Very Good, Strong Recommendation
  • TASTING NOTE: One of the more potent vodka sodas on the market, this has a splash of fresh lime to brighten up the profile. Very dry, with big, persistent bubbles to drive the flavors and satisfy the palate, it finishes on a bitter lime zest note.
Marble-rita Cocktail

Marble-rita

  • 86 points, Very Good, Strong Recommendation
  • TASTING NOTE: Sweet up front, but a citrus kick of lime and peppery tequila balance out the drink for a refreshing and classic profile of margarita. Pour over ice or add sparkling water for even more zesty refreshment.
Cosmo Cocktail

Cosmo

  • 85 points, Very Good, Strong Recommendation
  • TASTING NOTE: Tart and bright with generous flavors of cranberry and lime, this cocktail refreshes while remaining punchy and delivering concentrated fruit flavors. Perfect for summer parties and picnics, enjoy over ice or mix with club soda for a fun one-and-one.

  • 87 points, Very Good. Strong Recommendation
Spiked Seltzers Tropical Retreat

Tropical Retreat

  • 86 points, Very Good, Strong Recommendation

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.
