A: We’re happy to review your products. Ship a sample and any information about your products to:

Kevin R. Kosar
3900A Watson PL NW APT 8FG
Washington DC 20016

NOTE: We are aware of the FTC’s guidelines. Sending a sample does NOT earn you a review. There is no quid pro quo. What we review is solely at our discretion, and if you read AlcoholReviews.com you will see that we do post critical reviews.  NOTE: We get many, many samples, so it may take months for us to review a product. We understand that it costs you money to send us samples, but we just cannot review everything.  Please follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and G+—it is the fastest way to learn when we have posted a review of your product!

Q: Can I pay you to get my product reviewed?

A: NO!  We’ve never taken money to review a product, nor will we ever.

Q: How may I advertise on AlcoholReviews.com?

A: Yes.  All advertising campaigns are negotiated on a case-by-case basis.

We do not run advertisements for any products that we do not like.  So, in order to advertise, you must submit a product for review. The steps are:
(1) you submit a product for review; and
(2) provided we like the product, you then may consider advertising.  You are not obliged to advertise.  (We strongly uphold the editorial/advertising firewall.)
One course that is not open is to advertise first and then to seek a review. (It creates the appearance of a conflict of interest.)  For further details, e-mail alcoholreviews [at] gmail [dot] com.

Q: How can I send you a press release?

Please e-mail it to alcoholreviews [at] gmail [dot] com.

Q: How can I add a link to your search engine?

A: Sorry, no. The only links in our search engine are to products we have reviewed.

Q: How can I contact you for some other reason?

A: Please e-mail alcoholreviews [at] gmail [dot] com, or mail:
