2022 Tequila Mezcal ChallengeThe 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 selecting a prestigious panel of Tequila & Mezcal professionals consisting of Master Sommeliers, F&B Directors, Journalists, and Retailers Buyers. We aim 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. We plan to separate spirits into different price points for our popular categories 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 this website's results section under the year their spirits won a medal. Wine Country Network conducts an aggressive publicity campaign generating valuable media exposure for all winners.
