THE WORLD'S SMOOTHEST: BLUE SHARK VODKA
Made with non-GMO, heirloom variety North Carolina sweet corn, distilled four times into perfection. Our small-batch process is a labor of love. After distilling the corn four times, our mash mellows for 28 days, allowing flavors to fully bloom and awaken.
Finally, each batch is triple filtered, giving the vodka a smooth, clean finish and making the “alcohol bite” nearly vanish. This has earned Blue Shark Vodka the clever nickname, “The shark that doesn’t bite.”
NON-GMO, HEIRLOOM SWEET CORN
Our signature and star ingredient is non-GMO, heirloom sweet corn grown in the rich, flavor-imparting soils of North Carolina’s Southern Piedmont. The corn has a unique flavor all its own — light and pure with floral and vegetable notes, and terroir of neighboring peach orchards. The delicate flavors hold up, even after the intensity of the distilling process.
DALE DEGROFF: KING OF COCKTAILS TASTING NOTES
Attack: There is a hint of sweetness, that immediately goes dry as black and white pepper develops on the tongue.
Mid palate: A pleasant zing on the sides of the tongue as the lemon/ lime note zest (the acidity) starts salivation.
Finish: The vegetal notes return that develop into a pleasant bitterness in the finish. The finish is very short, and the mouth is left feeling clean.
Refined and smooth enough to drink on the rocks.
Clean ethanol character and then slight white pepper note / bread dough combined with a hint of vanilla.
HAND CRAFTED BOTTLES
The vision of a shark swimming in a bottle, much like a ship in a bottle, was at the inception of Blue Shark Vodka. The Bloomquist family day dreamed about bottling the exciting feeling they experienced on deep sea dives, encountering the docile, and surprisingly friendly, Blue Shark.
Each glass shark figurine is hand-crafted by glass blowers, who then blow each bottle around it. Because they are handmade, no two bottles (or sharks inside) are alike. Grab a bottle today to start a collection.
CURRENT & UPCOMING LIMITED EDITIONS
BLUE SKY EDITION
Blue Shark Vodka is proud to announce its selection for 2024’s artist-inspired label: Columbia, South Carolina native painter and sculpture artist – Blue Sky. In his early years, Sky studied under Ash Can painter Edmund Yaghjian and was judged “best of show” among 700 other artists in 1964. And in 2000, Sky was awarded the Order of the Palmetto, South Carolina’s highest civilian state honor, for his contributions to the arts—particularly, for painting the state’s first large-scale public mural in 1975. Best known for his larger-than-life installations, Sky’s numerous murals are concentrated throughout South Carolina with other installations in North Carolina, Virginia, Florida, and Michigan.
PREVIOUS LIMITED EDITIONS
Blue Shark Vodka released its Be Colorful bottle featuring the vodka’s signature underwater artwork, Blue Shark and a Pride flag with the message, “Love” imposed inside. The coral reef at the bottom of the seascape is adorned with rainbow colors.
THE WYLAND BOTTLE
Our limited edition release of a bottle label designed by world-famous ocean muralist Wyland gave $1 from every sale to The Wyland Foundation. His foundation centers around educational programs in communities and schools, sharing with children the importance of ocean conservation.
We teamed up with ocean muralist Wyland again to create a limited-edition bottle in 2023. The Wyland 2.0 bottle features an oil-painted scene of a blue shark circling an underwater shipwreck, with proceeds from the 750ml bottle benefiting The Wyland Foundation. This foundation’s mission is to provide educational art and marine science programs that inspire the next generation to explore oceans and embrace conservation. Our first partnership with Wyland in 2020 resulted in a sold-out collector’s bottle, and we’re excited to continue supporting his mission.
