About the 2020 Competition

The 2020 Tequila Mezcal Challenge was held between October 16 to 26, 2020, virtually and safely at judges' homes across the US. Judges also participated in a zoom meeting to enable safe communications during the Pandemic. This competition is the first double-blind, professionally judged spirits competition dedicated to defining excellence in more than 60 categories of Tequila, Mezcal, and Agave spirits. The judges tasted/evaluated approximately 50 different products this year.

2020 entry volume was impacted by CoVid-19 closures and the sharp increase in consumer demand during these crazy times. Stay safe and healthy!
