About Us

DrinkFacts 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), the 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 to drink. DrinkFacts 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 of these studies, DrinkFacts provides easily accessible resources for those wishing to learn more about alcohol.
