Artisanal Imports CEO Bob Leggett Addresses COVID-19 Crisis

Artisanal Imports in Austin, Texas has released a letter from CEO Bob Leggett providing information on the company's response to the coronavirus pandemic. The full letter is below.


On behalf of everyone here at Artisanal Imports, our hearts go out to those impacted by COVID-19 and to the businesses that are enduring never-before-seen challenges in modern times.

Safety is Artisanal Imports’ first priority and we want to assure you that we are continually following the latest CDC recommendations and guidelines by taking all necessary precautions to keep our working environment safe for our employees, for our distributors and retail partners, and for the public that we supply.

With the number of breweries, tasting rooms, restaurants and bars closed across the country, we want to remind you that retailers such as grocery stores and bottles shops currently remain a viable way to shop for beverages while practicing social distancing. We also encourage the use of online delivery services as a responsible option in those states where available.

In this time of crisis, it is remarkable to see how quickly the community has responded to support one another. Artisanal Imports is also dedicated to working with you to help solve business problems until this crisis has abated. Please don't hesitate to contact us for support in this time of need.

Please stay safe and we encourage you to follow the recommendations provided by the CDC to help flatten the curve and to ultimately shorten the duration of this crisis. For all those in the medical community on the frontlines, risking their own safety to treat the sick and to protect the healthy, we raise our glass to you!

We wish you safety and well-being, 

Bob Leggett

CEO, Artisanal Imports
