Blue Angel Vodka comes to the Bluegrass State

Master distiller and “Father of Modern-day Vodka” Maurice Kanbar is bringing his ultra-premium Blue Angel Vodka to Kentucky as part of the brand’s national expansion. After successful launches in Texas, Florida, Missouri, New York, Louisiana and New Jersey, Blue Angel is unleashing a full-market push in the Bluegrass State.

For the creation of Blue Angel, Kanbar took vodka distillation to a new level by using select American grain, pure water and a proprietary evolution of his world-renowned distillation process that made his first spirits venture a household name. The result? “Once you experience the soft taste and terrific finish of Blue Angel,” Kanbar says, “you’ll swear it’s been aged for five years.”

A prolific inventor, entrepreneur and thinker, Kanbar has more than thirty patents and numerous products to his credit; an ardent and generous philanthropist, the film school at New York University bears his name. In a June cover story in Inventors Digest, author Mike Drummond says, “Kanbar seems to have a Midas touch. He’s enjoyed success with many, if not most, of the various products he’s invented.”

Although relatively new to the market, Blue Angel has already made a splash, offering discerning consumers an unmatched, ultra-premium vodka comparable to high-priced European imports. But unlike other super-premiums, which can cost $40 or more per 750ml bottle, Blue Angel’s pricing pits it competitively against the ultra-premium vodkas on the market. In persistently challenging economic times, Blue Angel introduces Kentucky to a delightful—affordable—luxury.

Blue Angel is already becoming established in Kentucky with distribution through Southern Wine & Spirits and is carried at fine retailers throughout the state. Vodka connoisseurs and purists should call for the BAM—the Blue Angel Martini—to enjoy one of the most stringent tests of the vodka’s taste, mouth feel and finish.

“We’re delighted to roll out Blue Angel in Kentucky,” says Blue Angel COO James Eason. “Blue Angel is the right vodka at exactly the right time: luxury accessible to more discerning consumers. We’re looking forward to showcasing the best in American-made vodka and our signature Blue Angel Martini--the ‘BAM’.” Blue Angel has also formulated its own blue curaçao for making the BLUE BAM—a blue-hued variant of the BAM.

"Master distiller" my hat. Kanbar is more like an ogre "Monster distiller". The man's a menace to civilised society with his constant lawsuits and bad manners.
