    The Best Places To Buy Alcohol Online

    Just like pizza, alcohol can be delivered to your door in 30 minutes or less.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    Did you know you can get alcohol shipped right to your door?

    Getting the fixings for a Manhattan or a bottle of wine has never been easier. Here are some good websites that are happy to deliver everything you need for your home bar.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Don't forget to check the fine print to make sure these stores ship to your state. AK, AL, HI, KY, MS, and UT have much stricter alcohol laws (or are non-contiguous) so be mindful before hitting "buy." And of course, you must be of legal age and home to sign for the delivery.

    1. Winc offers a handy taste quiz and then sends you at least four bottles of wine tailored to your palate each month.

    Winc

    Here's how it works: You take a quiz about your wine preferences. Then they suggest four wines to get you started. You can choose to swap some out or add more. They send similar bottles each month that are tasty and have pretty labels (almost as important as the taste, imo). As long as you get at least four bottles, shipping is free. You can skip a month or cancel anytime. Read my whole review of this cool subscription service.

    Price: $13+/bottle

    2. Drizly has a vast inventory of beer, wine, liquor, and even extras like mixers and party supplies. They deliver everything in 60 minutes or less.

    Just put in your address and Drizly will tell you what's available for delivery. On top of alcohol, they can deliver party supplies, mixers, ice, and more. They also have cocktail recipes on the site. That means you can plan a mini party for you and your roommate without ever stepping foot outside. Since this is basically Seamless for booze, delivery fees and order minimums depend on where you're ordering from.

    Price: Depends on what you're ordering and your location

    3. 90+ Cellars works with vineyards and wineries all over the world to make sure the customer is getting the best price (and wine) possible.

    90+ Cellars

    90+ Cellars is kinda the TJ Maxx of wine stores. The company started when founder Kevin Mehra set out to find wineries looking to unload stock. High-end wineries didn't want sales or discounts that could hurt their brand, so they agreed to give 90+ Cellars a percentage of their production at a reduced rate. That meant that wineries could sell more and customers could get affordable vino. The company has grown and changed since then, but they still find delicious wines that customers can get at pretty great prices.

    Price: $9.99+/bottle

    4. Firstleaf wants to really get to know you and your taste in wine. Rate each bottle you get and soon you'll be drinking wine that's been expertly paired to your preferences.

    Like Winc, Firstleaf offers you a little quiz to get a sense of your preferences. Then they send you six wines tailored to your tastes. You can rate your wine online or talk to their concierge team if you have questions/concerns. The more wine you rate, the better Firstleaf will get at pinpointing the best wines for you. There's also a community to chat with and a newsletter.

    Price: $90/shipment ($15/bottle)

    5. Fresh Direct can send you alcohol along with your groceries. That means all the ingredients needed for a caipirinha (limes, sugar, ice, cachaça) can be ordered at one place. Talk about efficiency.

    Fresh Direct has two sections: beer and cider, or wine and spirits. You can even shop for selections from your local breweries.

    Price: Assorted

    6. Usual Wines will make you feel like a boozy scientist because they ship all their wine in little beakers.

    instagram.com, instagram.com, instagram.com

    I've tried this wine and it's pretty darn good! I use the empty bottles as bud vases. Each beaker is filled with one glass of wine (6.3 ounces). You can choose white, rose, red, or a mix of all three. They all have at least 12% alcohol and the white wine has zero added sugar. Shipping is free when you order 12 bottles or more.

    Price: $96+/shipment

    7. Saucey takes a page from pizzerias and offers alcohol deliveries in 30 minutes or less.

    instagram.com

    Put in your address and get shopping! There are no delivery fees or order minimums. Fun fact: Saucey tells you what the best sellers are in your neighborhood and unfortunately, in mine, it is egg nog.

    Price: Assorted

    8. Wine Insiders will send you a crate of wine in just a few days. Their 100% satisfaction guarantee means if you don't like every bottle you get, they'll make it right for you.

    Wine Insiders

    They also have a club that sends you 12 bottles of wine every 12 weeks for $89. The first case comes with three free bottles to get you started.

    Best of all, IMO? They worked with Martha Stewart so you can browse her personally curated selection of wine. Has she actually drank any of these? Unlikely, but I like imagining having Martha as my personal sommelier.

    Price: $9.99+/bottle

    9. Beer of the Month Club lets you explore an assortment of new craft beers. What a hoppy time you'll have when your shipment arrives every month!

    Beer of the Month Club

    The beers are curated from over 10,000 breweries from all over the world. There are five beer clubs to choose from: US microbrew, international, US and international variety pack, hop-heads (US and international), or rare beers. You can also save a little bit of money by buying multiple months on Groupon (BOTMC has a $15 shipping fee).

    Price: $29.95+/month

    10. Wine Awesomeness will send you wine, plus a wine-themed zine filled with articles, tasting notes, recipe pairings, and more.

    instagram.com

    You can get monthly shipments of three or six bottles, plus a copy of thebacklabel magazine. The shipping is free. To get an idea of what's inside the magazine, check out the backlabel website.

    Price: $39+/shipment

    11. Vinebox takes the perfume tester approach with their wine: You get nine tubes of different wines so you can take your palate on a tasting journey.

    instagram.com, instagram.com

    With a membership, you'll get a box with nine 3.4 ounce vials of different wines. Each box has a different theme. For example, the Wine and Cheese box comes with information on the best cheese to pair with each one. If you really like one of the vials, you'll get credit for full-sized bottles for either $15 or $30 per quarter, depending on your membership.

    Price: $79+/box

    Cheers!
