Vogue Living - 9 of the best at-home alcohol delivery platforms in Australia - including Dusty Vin :)
Get your wine or cocktail fix at home.
If you just don’t feel quite right about leaving the house, or your local bottle shop doesn’t have the selection you need, why not consider one of these alcohol delivery services? From premium Australian reds (winter is coming!) to organic skin contact oranges or a bottle of gin, there’s lots to be found when you venture online. Here are some of our favourites.
Mo Sisters Wine
With free shipping across Australia and the most Instagrammable labels on earth, Mo Sister's new wine store has you sorted.
If you haven’t seen one of Drnks’ mystery box packs on your Instagram, then what have you been doing during isolation? The favourite of the country’s most influential wine drinkers, Drnks has it all: trendy natural wine, batch brewed beer and artisan saké. If you want to try something different, Drnks should be your first port of call.
If the name doesn't sum it up, this might: "All of the wines stem from organic or biodynamic viticulture and tended to by hand with minimal intervention after harvesting." Selling only natural wine, Notwasted is shaking up the game when it comes to finding super cool biodynamic winemakers. From a trendy orange-tinged drop to something more classic, Notwasted has a selection that won't have you feeling guilty at all.
Non-alcoholic wine, beer and spirits have exploded in popularity recently, as more and more Australians join the ranks of the sober-curious movement, or swear off booze altogether. Despite this, locally-made non-alcoholic drinks are still relatively tricky to source, which is why we did a little fist pump when we stumbled across Gold Coast-based non-alcoholic webstore Dusty Vin.
Specialising in small batch Australian-made tipples, from Melbourne's Monceau 'Pét-Nat' Kombucha to the delicious zero-alcohol spirits from Lyre, Dusty Vin is the place to shop when you're looking for something that's soft but still inspiring. Trust us, even your drinking friends will want to try a sip. The small business offers same-day delivery on the Gold Coast, and ships Australia-wide.
Fratelli Fresh’s cocktail packs
Always an after work favourite, Fratelli Fresh is now doing your ultimate 6pm drink, but at home. With four cocktail packs on sale, Negroni and Aperol Spritz lovers can get their hit with a side of freshly made pasta, if you wish.
Not able to use your frequent flyer points on a holiday this year? Why not invest in some wine instead. Qantas Wine is a favourite for local collectors and lovers of Australian wine, and delivers straight to your door. Plus, they also do spirits.
BS Shop @ The Old Clare
One of Sydney’s favourite hotel pubs has pivoted into a car boot alcohol shop — and they’re delivering! With a whole lot of special drops, there’s plenty of magic to be found.
The Weekly Drop
A curated wine delivery each week (one red and one white) offering up the best in local and international wines. Subscriptions are available weekly, fortnightly and monthly, or you can hop on for an individual bottle (or six!).
