To help you facilitate your socially distanced gathering or Zoom call, we’ve compiled a list of the six best liquor sales that will help to get your (personal) party started. We’ve also detailed how to use each service. Thanks to these incredible companies, all you have to do is place your order, and before you know it, your favorite beer, wine or spirit will appear on your doorstep. (Just remember to wear your mask if you opt-out of no-contact delivery.) Let the festivities begin—you’re in for a whale of a time!
Serving most major U.S. cities (that's a whopping 180 different markets!), Drizly is one of the most well-known alcohol delivery services around. It’s also one of the quickest—in some locations you can get your selection delivered within just 60 minutes. There's all sorts of liquor options to be explored here, including gin, tequila and whiskey, plus a wide array of wine varietals and bubbly. Better yet, check out the site's ready-to-drink selection. With these purchases, you'll have a pre-mixed alcoholic beverage the second your delivery hits the door—you can also pick out garnishes and mixers if you're looking to be your own mixologist. Right now, new customers will get $5 off their order with coupon code HELLO at checkout. If you're an existing customer looking to grab a deal, be sure to check out their selection of wine priced under $10.
Saucey is another great delivery service that is offering a $5 coupon when you enter your email address in the pop-up you'll get upon heading to the site. The company has even curated a St. Patrick's Day selection, including this St. Patty Can Really Shake It drink, which includes the Bailey's you'll need to make a specialty themed cocktail with minimal ingreGuiness, mint chocolate chip ice cream and chocolate syrup). Apart from that, you'll find an even larger selection of regular alcoholic beverages in practically any size—grab a 12-ounce Guinness bottle (from $6.20) to a larger 12-pack (from $18.99). The only drawback? Delivery is limited to 23 major cities at the moment. That said, you'll get on-demand delivery within 30 minutes in certain locales, which gives this brand a slight edge over competing services.
If you’re looking for a specific or hard-to-locate wine, Wired for Wine was made for you. With copious white and red blends and bubbly champagnes to choose from, plus a wide variety of sake and spirits, this delivery service has you covered. There’s also a large selection of beverages currently discounted in the website’s clearance section. You could get a swanky 1.75-liter Belvedere vodka bottle, for instance, once $99.99, for just $53.97, saving you $46.02. While this pick will result in a belated celebration, as it won't arrive for up to two weeks, other options are available with UPS Next Day Air Saver or Air delivery for an upcharge. If you're not in a rush, you can also opt to purchase six or more bottles to qualify for free standard shipping. Do double check if this online retailer ships to you, as restrictions may exist for some out-of-state purchasers.
For the harder stuff, like all those rich Irish whiskeys, you'll want to check out Flaviar. The company's annual subscription service is currently seeing a price drop from $380 to $300, saving you $80, making for a great way to celebrate your Irish roots. It could also be a great gift for your favorite Irishman or woman. In addition to a quarterly tasting of “rare and mysterious” spirits and access to members-only events, you'll get an extra bottle of hard liquor with your purchase and free shipping. That's good news, since nothing from this members-only club falls into the run-of-the-mill category. While you're waiting for your first box to arrive, you can join the company for its St. Patty’s Day virtual event, which will include an Irish band, quizzes, an online toast and more.
Minibar offers statewide delivery, and, in some locations, delivers all your favorite spirits within an hour. You can grab everything you need for your St. Paddy's ongoings, including wines, liquors, ready-to-drink cocktails and other celebration essentials, such as snacks, ice, and more. You can also currently get $5 off your order with coupon code WELCOME if you’re a new customer. Even if you've shopped here before, there’s still tons of discounts to be found, with many selections going for just under $20, depending on your region.
Winc is a wine-subscription club that will allow you to become an unofficial sommelier from your living room. Simply fill out a six-question quiz to determine your personal wine profile, and the company will tailor a four-bottle box to your tastes to be delivered monthly. Your box can be comprised of both white and red wines—there's even vegan options available. You can also easily skip a month if you're not feeling it. Right now, you can get your first wine box for $20 off. Since a single wine box is usually priced anywhere between $52 to $59, depending on your selections, that means you could get your first four wines for as low as $32. That’s less than $10 per bottle! While shipping will take three to seven business days, which may delay your celebration, it will be free if you spend at least $50. Once you're in, however, you'll be ready for the next big êt, with zero commitment and the option to cancel your membership anytime.
