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

In these difficult times (I am getting so tired of saying that), Whisky Advocate finds the bright spots.  This is a nice article highlighting the sanitizer production across the country, and the few states like Virginia that have allowed direct-to-consumer shipping.
