Whisky Advocate: Craft Distillers Struggle to Survive Amid COVID-19

The Whisky Advocate checked in with a few distilleries to see how they’re surviving - or trying to survive - in the current climate.

​“COVID-19 has battered the entire whisky industry but perhaps no one is struggling quite like the thousands of craft distillers in the U.S. The pandemic has shuttered tasting rooms and disrupted distribution, cutting off crucial revenue streams, prompting staff cuts, and potentially putting some on the brink of permanent closure. While most large companies forecast little impact from the current crisis—even as they suspend operations or shift production capacity to making hand sanitizer—some smaller distillers foresee whiskey supply shortages down the road, or worse.
