2021 Alcohol Quarterly Update Series | E-Commerce & How the Pandemic Influenced the Way We Buy Alcohol

In the first of our quarterly webinar series, we will discuss how the pandemic influenced the way we buy alcohol.

According to Forbes, the global e-commerce market for spirits and wine doubled in 2020. As the pandemic evolves consumer behavior—sparking a surge in online alcoholic beverage purchases—the e-commerce landscape has fundamentally transformed. Consumers want alcohol to mirror other consumer goods that arrive at their doorsteps. But, as direct-to-consumer and e-commerce proliferates, alcoholic beverage producers and distributors must be mindful of potential enforcement landmines, as well as contractual obligations, among other emerging issues.
