BROOKE BLOOMQUIST, master distiller at New Hanover County’s first distillery, Blue Shark Vodka, co-founded the company with her father, Mark, in 2018. The family-run business now includes her mother, Niki, and brother, Brett.
Brooke Bloomquist says that from the start, the family knew they wanted to work with a North Carolina farmer to source the mash bill for their vodka. They selected Carolina sweet corn grown by farmer Jeff Griffin in Polkton. The sweet corn mash bill is fermented, then distilled four times and filtered three times to remove impurities before it’s diluted to 40 percent ABV with reverse-osmosis filtrated water.

It is not an easy thing to start your own brand and build it from scratch, especially when it comes to something as delicate as vodka. The taste and quality of the ingredients are just as important as the branding, so you have to make sure it ticks all the boxes. I had the pleasure to catch up with Brooke Bloomquist – the founder of Blue Shark Vodka, and find out more about the inspiration behind her brand.
