Just because you’re stuck at home doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself of regular vices. With the rise of booze delivery services, those services’ ability to serve more parts of the U.S. has grown. Plus, many of your local liquor stores could use the help. Here are five companies that can get whiskey, wine, beer and whatever other booze you want delivered, same-day.

Remember that these companies are not retailers, thus the booze you see available on their sites reflects what’s on store shelves near you. Plug your zip code in before doing shopping so you don’t wind up looking at bottles you can’t actually get.

Editor’s Note: Be sure to call your local liquor store before relying on another company to facilitate the order and delivery. If they offer their own delivery service, it’s likely to be slightly better-priced and is better for the store.


Probably the largest player in the booze delivery market, Drizly offers all spirits, beer, wine and even ice. They’re among the fastest to deliver, too, guaranteeing 60-minute delivery if you live in one of its 101 different markets.


If you’re in one of Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York City, Orange County, SF East Bay, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Silicon Valley, South Bay LA or Washington D.C. and need a drink immediately, you’re in luck. Saucey guarantees a staggering half-hour delivery window after ordering.


In LA, NYC, Miami, Chicago or Phoenix? Postmates, a rare beauty of an app that will make a Taco Bell run and a tequila run at the same time, has you covered. Use it for everything.


Just like Postmates, but a different roster of cities. Control + F “Alcohol Delivery” to see a list on its homepage.

Reserve Bar

OK, Reserve Bar’s same-day delivery service is not as robust as the others on this list, but its focus on gifting makes it valuable. Use this service when buying a co-worker, friend or boss a COVID-19 happy hour gift. If you order far enough in advance, you have the option of custom engraving, gift packaging options and more. Their whiskey selection is as robust of any on the internet.
