Our goal is to be a resource of information about all things bourbon and whiskey. Our focus is on news and releases but we also love tasting a great bourbon and sharing a review. We welcome the involvement and submissions of content from bourbon lovers, distilleries, PR companies, and industry experts.
If you represent a distillery, we welcome accurate information about the bourbons you represent and your tasting notes. Additionally, we encourage you to provide information about the distillery, the team and other important information. Have a bottle you would like to have featured? Fill out the form below and we’ll get the ball rolling. See below for more questions and details.
How can I submit a product for reviews on distiller.news?
Every year, we review numerous spirits for publication on distiller.news. Each review is done by our panel of “industry experts”, we review spirits that are widely available and interesting to our readers, so we tend to focus on spirits that are either highly sought after or available in most major markets within the United States. Our editorial team determines which products we will review and when those reviews will be published. Requesting a review does not guarantee a review, and any products submitted without all of the appropriate information will not be reviewed. Below you’ll find answers to the most common questions regarding reviews within Distiller. Please read all of the questions before reaching out with questions or submitting a review request.
How do you decide which products to review?
Our goal is to spend our time and interest on reviews that will be of interest to our readers. Therefore, if you product is a gimmick or designed for frat parties, we may not review it. We have learned a lot from the wine industry, and a good looking label or catchy name does not mean it will be good.
IF I DON’T SUBMIT MY PRODUCT FOR REVIEW, MIGHT YOU REVIEW IT ANYWAY?
Yes, we might. If it’s something that we find of interest, we may purchase it on our own in order to review it. We love small family owned distilleries.
IF I DON’T LIKE A REVIEW OR DISAGREE WITH THE SCORE, CAN I DO ANYTHING TO CHANGE IT?
If you disagree with something we have written, let us know, after all you know your brand pretty damn well. if you believe that we have published errors in the product description you can reach us at email@example.com and we’ll give you a shout and discuss. We will review your request and make corrections if appropriate.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR MY PRODUCT TO BE REVIEWED?
It can take several months to review your product and post our review once we have received samples.
WHEN MY PRODUCT IS REVIEWED, WHERE WILL IT APPEAR?
They will go live on distiller.news on the homepage and the reviews page. The review will be featured on our homepage for the first few days, then will be cycled off and replaced by newer news reviews. We often re-publish reviews to give them more time on the homepage. Our reviews will also begin showing up in search engine results shortly after being published. We will try and follow up when reviews are posted and ask for a social media post if possible to help with SEO.
IS THERE A FEE TO SUBMIT MY PRODUCT?
There is currently no fee to process your product for review.
YOU REVIEWED MY PRODUCT IN THE PAST, BUT THE PRODUCT HAS CHANGED. CAN WE SUBMIT FOR A RE-REVIEW?
If we’ve reviewed your product in the past but the liquid inside the bottle has changed even though the product name and packaging have not, then we may consider a re-review. We cannot guarantee a re-review, however. While filling out our Review Request Form (more information below), please list all pertinent information and explain the differences in the product. This will enable us to make an educated decision about whether a product warrants a re-review or not.
