If you need your delivery in a hurry, then Drizly is the way to go. You shop from liquor stores in your area through the Drizly app or site, and then they deliver it to you in 60 minutes or less.

Drizly is one of the more widely available delivery app services.
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.

Websites That Deliver Spirits, Wine & Beer To Your Home
Where To Buy Spirits Online
If you like being on the cutting edge when it comes to discovering premium spirits before everyone else then Curiada is the place for you. They specialize in smaller and lesser-known brands that you probably won’t find in your local liquor store. The staff behind Curiada scours the industry for hard-to-find spirits from craft distillers that might become your new favorite. They will even help you choose a spirit to give as a gift.
Reserve Bar has all the best top-shelf brands no matter your favorite style of spirit. They have a robust selection of spirits plus wine and champagne, including exclusive and limited releases. The area where Reserve Bar really excels is gift-giving with selections of bottles broken down by occasion plus they offer custom engraving of bottles. Be sure to check out their collection of spirits produced by Black and women-owned distilleries.
Where To Buy Wine Online
It doesn’t get much easier to find this resource for getting wine delivered to your home. Wine.com allows you to browse by varietal or region when shopping their vast selection of popular brands. If you’re not sure which bottle to choose then check out their lists of highly rated and popular wines. On top of filling your own wine fridge, you can also send a friend a gift basket, curated wine set or glassware and other wine accessories. Wine.com has also branched out to offer spirits on their site.
Rather than offer a huge selection of brand name wines, Naked Wines invests in independent wineries to offer customers great deals on exceptional wines that they otherwise might not be able to get their hands on. The investment comes from the $40 their customers (known as Angels) deposit into their account every month in order to buy from Naked.
Where To Buy Craft Beer Online
This is a one-stop-shop for craft beer lovers looking to find beers that aren’t normally sold in their area. You can browse their selection either by choosing your favorite style or shop from a specific brewery. Most of the beers are available to purchase as single bottles or cans, including 750 ml bottles, but you can also find select variety and gift packs. Craftshack also offers a selection of hard seltzers, ciders and spirits.
Craft City has an equally impressive selection of craft brews that can be sorted by style or brewery. Most of their offerings come in single cans and bottles, but you can also find some 6-packs on the site. One thing that caught our attention on Craft City was their selection of kombucha and craft sodas that are also available to purchase in single cans or bottles with a limited selection of 6-packs. Craft City also sells a variety of spirits and wine.
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.
