Currently available in over 35 major cities in the U.S., Minibar works with local spirit retailers in your area to deliver your order within a few days. Minibar’s site is a great resource if you are planning a party because they have an event planner page that shows you how much booze to buy. You input how many guests you’ve invited, the time of day and length of your event and what types of alcohol you want to serve and it will tell you how much to order. They even break it down by variety when it comes to wine (red or white), liquor (vodka, whiskey, gin, etc) and beer (domestic vs. import).
Do you love wine, but you never know what bottle to pick when you go to the store? Winc helps you make your decision by asking you a series of questions to curate a flavor profile. Then they select four wines and ship them to you. Winc offers a subscription service then sends you four wines every month based on your tastes and feedback from other wines you’ve purchased from them. You can also customize your order to include some of your favorites in your delivery.
Operating in a number of major American markets, Saucey offers an on-demand selection of beer, wine and liquor. They promise to deliver your order in 30 minutes or less! It might take you that long to drive to the liquor store, so let them do it. Saucey also offers 2-day shipping to anywhere in California and New York.
Swill lets you have your favorite alcoholic beverages delivered to your door in less than 60 minutes. You can order from their website, app for mobile devices or even your Apple Watch. Need a bag of ice or limes for your cocktails? They can deliver those too. Send a bottle to a friend or loved one as a gift with Swill as well.
Postmates is great for delivering food from your favorite restaurants, but did you know they can deliver booze too? In select markets, Postmates will bring you beer, wine and spirits in under an hour. Now you can pair your favorite drink or beer with your takeout.
If you aren’t in a rush or planning for an event in advance then check with bars, restaurants and craft producers in your area to see if they can deliver to your home. Some states allow these establishments to deliver directly to consumers. You may need to order food in addition to beer or wine to be eligible for delivery. Again, it depends on state and local laws.
