Tequila Mezcal Challenge Product Categories

We have more than 60 categories to choose from and anticipate adding more over time.

TMC Judging Catagories are Tequila, Mezcal, Sotol, Raicilla, Bacanora, and Agave Spirits

The Tequila Mezcal Challenge (TMC) is organized by Wine Country Network, Inc, the publishers of Wine Country International® magazine and the organizers of these world-famous beverage competitions:

We are organizing the TMC and select a prestigious panel of Tequila & Mezcal professionals consisting of Master Sommelier's, F&B Directors, Journalists, and Retailers Buyers. Our goal is to create a well-rounded panel of experts that will taste the Tequilas, Mezcal & Agave Spirits “double-blind” and achieve the fairest scoring results possible. For our popular categories, we plan to separate spirits in different price points to maintain an even playing field.

Medal-winning spirits will be posted on this website within 72 hours of the competition. Posted winners will remain listed in the results section of this website under the year that their spirits won a medal. Wine Country Network conducts an aggressive publicity campaign generating valuable media exposure for all winners.

We cordially invite your participation!
