Blue Sky Distillery is based in Carrollton, VA, with production operations located in Smithfield, VA. The company is colocated with the Spring Lake Bottled Water Co. within the Isle of Wight Industrial Park in Isle of Wight County.
Blue Sky Distillery is owned and operated by Mark and Kim Rangos. Mark and Kim are originally from Wellsburg, West Virginia, and moved to the Carrollton area several years ago. Mark’s family has been in the alcohol business for many decades. His grandfather opened a bar in the 1950’s in West Virginia. The bar was passed down from his grandfather to his mother; then to his sisters; and is still in operation today. Mark’s father opened a winemaking and beermaking supply shop when he retired in the 1990’s. The business was recently passed on to his nephew, where he continues to sell winemaking and beermaking supplies in West Virginia.
With more than 20 years in various management capacities with manufacturers of construction equipment, Mark has always wanted to produce a product of his own. With the natural influence of the alcohol business in his family background, Mark developed ambitions to start a microdistillery. Mark founded Blue Sky Distillery early in 2016 and began production of a smooth premium vodka early in 2017. With a focus on producing quality handcrafted spirits, Blue Sky Distillery has introduced DOG STAR Vodka in July 2017 and BLACKBEARD’S POINT Silver Rum in October 2017.
