Whiskey Review Submission

Review Guidelines

NOTE: As of 2024 The Whiskey Wash is once again reviewing whiskeys. Please follow the below guidelines for submissions.

As one of the leading publishers in the whiskey information space, The Whiskey Wash strives to review and give coverage to as many whiskeys as we can, no matter where in the world they are from. That being said, we cannot substitute quantity for quality when it comes to our editorial attention to each bottle we review. Therefore please take note of the following before submitting a review of your product.

1. Get in Touch First: Before you send us anything, please email [email protected]. We’d love to hear about your whiskey and ensure we’re a good fit for each other.

2. Tell Us About Your Whiskey: When you get in touch, tell us the story behind your whiskey, how it’s made, and what makes it unique. The more details you provide, the better we can understand and review your whiskey.

3. Sample Size: We understand if you can’t send a full bottle, but we do need at least 50ml to conduct a thorough tasting. This ensures we have enough to fully experience and evaluate your whiskey.

4. Packaging Matters: Please ensure your sample is well-sealed and securely packaged to avoid any leaks or breakages. If you can, use eco-friendly packaging materials—we do our best to recycle and reuse what we can.

5. Picture Perfect: For our reviews, we prefer to use official photos from your brand’s website or social media. If you’re sending a full-size bottle and are okay with us taking our own photos, just let us know.

6. What We Look For: Our audience has a particular taste, and while we’re open to exploring, we generally focus on traditional whiskies. Flavored whiskies and unaged spirits are a harder sell but don’t hesitate to discuss this with us if you believe your product stands out.

7. Patience is Appreciated: We put a lot of care and attention into each review, which means it can take a few weeks to a couple of months from the time we receive your sample to when the review is published. We’re committed to providing thoughtful and thorough feedback on every whiskey we try.

Keeping all of the above in mind, please send review samples to the following address:
