Mark Bloomquist dreamed up the idea of Blue Shark Vodka in early 2015. Later that year he traveled to Maui and discussed with his daughter Brooke. The pair decided to create a vodka so smooth it would iterate their deep sea diving adventures and they enlisted the rest of their family to help. From Mark’s Naval career to their family’s deep love of the ocean, marine life and life on Wrightsville Beach, all signs pointed to making their vodka focus on bottling life at sea.
The first bottle of Blue Shark Vodka was produced and sold in 2019.
Above creating a top shelf spirit, Blue Shark Vodka is helping conserve blue sharks by partnering with research organizations tagging blues around the Atlantic.
