Right now alcohol delivery services are filling the gap left when the pubs and bars had to shut. Sure, drinking at home is usually less sociable, but with a good bottle of beer and a pub quiz with your buddies on Zoom, our weekend evenings can feel a little more normal. And with barbecue season hotting up, having your favourite drinks ready to pop is all part of summer.
So where can you get alcohol delivery online? Well, luckily there are not only a wide range of places dedicated to mailing out a top selection of beers or wine, plenty of other online stores sell booze, too.
We have scouted out the best places to buy alcohol online (in the UK and US) so you can top up on everything from Aperol to Żubrówka. So, save room in your trolley on your weekly trip for essentials and give these beer, wine and spirit vendors a go.
Some have some great offers on too – scroll down to see the best places to head for speedy, and contact-free beer, wine and spirit delivery. Head to our food section to see some great recipes to pair with your buys for the ultimate night in.
As always, drink responsibly and if you feel at all unwell it is best to lay off the booze until you feel better (alcohol weakens the immune system making you more prone to picking up viruses, you know...).
