Shark Week Discovery Channel


Mako Vodka BottleDiscovery Channel’s “Shark Week” has been trending throughout the week on Twitter #SharkWeek, so we had to find some way to drink and write about it here at

After we watched Fast N’ Loud‘s Richard & Aaron doing shots of Patron and Crown Royal with host Josh Wolf on Shark After Dark as they played Shark Trivia, we knew it was time to find some quality “Sharktails.”

We made a discovery..there is tasty vodka named after a the Mako Shark called Mako Vodka.

Even if you’re not watching Shark Week or Sharknado anytime soon, these cocktails are refreshing for the rest of summer or anytime.

For more cocktails, sign up for our free newsletter on this link and learn more about the Mako Shark and Mako Vodka at the bottom of the story.

The Mako Shark:

Mako SharkThe Mako Shark is fastest shark in the water.

A Mako can swim up to 60 mph when on the hunt and is often called “The Cheetah of the Sea.”

They can live in warm, cold, shallow or deep water.

The Short Fin Mako was featured in Hemingway’s “Old Man and the Sea.”



Mako VodkaMako Vodka:

While Mako shark likes all types of water, Mako Vodka uses only pure natural iron-free limestone spring water.

At 75ft, their stills are about the size of 8 Mako sharks lined up from head to fin. Mako Vodka is five-times distilled for exceptional purity.

They then add oven-dried, medium-roasted malted barley to our mash bill.

Mako Vodka was awarded a 93 rating, gold medal from the Beverage Testing Institute.
