Life can be crazy. Between running a business, managing employees, meeting clients and potential investors, hitting the gym, coming home in time for dinner, going to the kids’ ball games, seeing your friends, that’s simply exhausting. It’s no wonder that every now and then you like to enjoy some quiet time with a drink. But where do you put a liquor store trip in all of this?
Well no. After all, the pandemic has gotten us used to home deliveries of everything from groceries to electronics, so why can’t we deliver alcohol on our doorstep?
Pro tip: you can. It’s legal in 30 states, and Drizly says it operates the largest online marketplace for alcohol in North America. (Plus, it’s about to open in Canada as well.)
Whether you like having a glass of wine every evening or rushing to prepare a summer barbecue, drizzle can lift a weight off your shoulders. Drizly has a huge selection of spirits, with just about any type of liquor, beer, or wine you can imagine, from familiar names to obscure, artisanal options, all at the same prices you’d expect in your local store. Drizly even offers blenders, ice cream, party supplies, appetizers, and snacks to help you organize this feature at the last minute. Plus, you can schedule delivery up to two weeks in advance or have an on-demand order delivered in about an hour in some markets. Drizly works on your schedule.
the website and the app couldn’t be easier to navigate, letting you filter through offers where you’ll find product details, ratings, and reviews for all kinds of spirits. (You can even choose to send libations to a friend or a really nice gift to clients or potential investors.)
Most markets require a minimum purchase plus a delivery charge to help trading partners offset the costs. Otherwise, the prices are not marked up – they are determined by the neighborhood store you are supporting by ordering. Of course, since you’re ordering locally, you might not be able to find everything you want as quickly as you want.
