Wilmington, NC, September 27, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Blue Shark Vodka is ready to unveil its new, exclusive glass airport display at Wilmington International Airport this Friday, September 27 at 4:30 p.m.
The custom vitrine was handcrafted by Greensboro, NC, “Maker of Beautiful Things” Chris Horney, who has handcrafted custom, high-end furniture and other specialty pieces in his shop since 1997. The one-of-a-kind glass display will showcase Blue Shark Vodka’s hand-blown glass bottles on three glass, shell-shaped shelves with a seaweed-wrapped center pole.
“We wanted a display that both Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach will be proud of,” said Blue Shark Vodka president Brooke Bloomquist. “Visitors and tourists can admire the craftsmanship and beauty of each Blue Shark Vodka bottle in this gorgeous showcase that’s also a work of art.”
“We were thrilled to bring North Carolina artist Chris Horney on board for this project,” said Blue Shark Vodka Chief Executive Officer, Mark Milliken. “We knew his work would complement our unique bottle in an amazing way.”
The ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 4:30 p.m. at Wilmington International Airport beside the TSA screening and baggage claim.
Blue Shark Vodka is a division of Daytoon, Inc.
