About The Spirit Journal
in February of 1991, The Spirit Journal: The Independent Guide
to Distilled Spirits, Beer, and Fortified Wines is the worldís
most quoted publication on spirits, beer, and fortified wines.
The quarterly newsletter's no-advertising policy and strict evaluation
methods ensure unbiased opinions, professional appraisals that
are guided solely by product quality, tasting format, and expertise
rather than price or reputation. Read on four continents by consumers
and industry people alike, The Spirit Journal is acknowledged
as the world's leading authority on spirits, beer, and fortified
1991 F. Paul Pacult founded the Spirit Journal. The idea
was simple -- to provide in each issue an unbiased, thoughtful
but non-snobby review of beers, wines, and spirits. There'd be
no glossy cover, flashy pictures, and absolutely no advertising.
This was to be the Consumer's Reports for the alcohol
.Clearly, Pacult has succeeded.
$49 per year subscribers are receiving wise counsel. Pacult can
instruct you on what makes a Tequila a Tequila as opposed to
a mezcal, the latest from the Cognac trade, and, of course, which
beer, wine and spirits are worth purchasing, and which aren't.
This, of course, has the potential to save the consumer a great
deal of money and grief as it helps him avoid getting ripped
off or sold a bad bottle. F. Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal,
in short, provides information that can bring peace of mind to
the beer, wine, and spirits shopper. Not bad for $49 per year,
