We're interested in providing an information resource about Tequila. We're not interesting in annoying our customers by sharing our database with evil spammers.
The only right we reserve is that if we do start a newsletter or a new tequila-related venture, that we may contact you to let you know about it.

Bear in mind that any kind of promotional activity will be pretty rare from us, so you'll never have to worry about getting constant emails from us.
