About Us

DrinkInfo is a website created to provide general information on alcohol and health. This website is funded by the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS), a national trade association representing producers and marketers of distilled spirits sold in the United States.

The potential health impact of consuming alcohol is an important consideration in deciding whether or not to drink beverage alcohol. DrinkInfo seeks to provide resources to those wishing to learn more about making responsible alcohol choices.

Alcohol has been studied extensively over time, and the body of research is only growing, as each year thousands of new studies are published. While it would be next to impossible for anyone to review and report on all these studies, DrinkInfo provides access to a wide array of resources for those wishing to learn more about alcohol. DISCUS and its members are not responsible for the content on the linked sites and references.

DrinkInfo presents quoted and linked materials to facilitate education and awareness on the studied topics. Please note that in most cases, the underlying research data is not available for public review, and DISCUS is unable to verify the data or corroborate the interpretations of the independent researchers. Readers should form their own judgments about these topics and DISCUS strongly encourages readers to discuss these issues with their personal health providers.
