Event: Alcohol at Your Doorstep: The Future of Direct-to-Consumer Shipping
COVID-19 has changed the world of alcohol delivery. Things that were once seen as unattainable— such as to-go cocktails or a bottle of bourbon delivered to your doorstep—are now common in many states. But what is the next frontier of alcohol delivery? While restaurants and stores increasingly enjoy the ability to deliver alcohol to homes, alcohol producers themselves also are pushing to be able to deliver.
Direct-to-consumer (DtC) wine shipping has been legal in most states for several decades, but DtC shipments of distilled spirits and beer are still largely prohibited. Does this distinction make sense in 2022 America? Why has spirit and beer DtC shipping not spread more widely? How can DtC shipping be done safely and effectively?
