Submissions

Drinkhacker welcomes spirits, wine, beer, and other product submissions for review (including mixers, non-alcoholic drinks, and some food products). We prefer standard, unopened, 750ml size bottles, but will review minis or sample bottles if standard bottles are not available. Please ensure that all samples are appropriately labeled; never send unlabeled vials of any size.

There are no fees associated with product submissions. Financial compensation is not accepted for coverage. Any sponsored posts on the site are marked as advertisements.

Typical turnaround for reviews is three days to three months after receipt of product, depending on our backlog, but it can be longer depending on the season and reader demand for the product category. We try our best to review all submissions but cannot guarantee that all submitted products will be covered on the site. As well, please note that we do not guarantee positive coverage. If you submit a product for review on the site, please do so with the knowledge that negative reviews do happen, and that our review will comprise an honest assessment of your product, warts and all. It is not our goal to hurt the business or the feelings of beverage producers, but our ultimate responsibility is to the consumer and the reader -- not the manufacturer.

While we understand the need to protect glass bottles during shipping, please try to minimize packaging material to the extent you are able. If you can ship products without a "signature required" option, they will have a better chance of arriving in a timely fashion and in good condition. If you are sending items that require refrigeration, please note this as boldly as possible on the packaging itself and liberally via email. Please use the utmost caution if shipping wine or other heat-sensitive products during the summer months (May to September), with climate controlled shipping recommended.

Any presskits or photos are preferred in electronic format. Please include a standard bottle shot or two of your product with any correspondence. The larger the better, though 2000 pixels on each side is plenty; square or landscape shots of products in an environment (not on a white background) are preferred. JPG or PNG format is fine.

To submit a product, fill out the form below and we will send you the appropriate address for shipping your sample.
