Covid may not quite be extinct, but the lockdown most certainly is. We are now again free to go around with gay abandon and purchase the items we formerly found difficult to obtain while the stores were all closed. But for many of us, the convenience of home delivery for a variety of previously undeliverable items became second nature; as a result, apps like Dunzo, Swiggy Mart, and Grofers (now BlinkIt) were indispensable for meeting our demands for groceries and other essentials. Sadly, the transportation of alcohol was the one thing that largely disappeared. Despite the lockdown being strengthened by apps like Zomato and Big Basket to make it available in some places, the lifting of lockdown also meant returning to the status quo, and for most apps, delivering alcoholic beverages to your door was not that. A few websites have endured, though, and they can deliver your wine or vodka need without requiring you to leave your house.
1. Living Liquidz | Mumbai
If you’re lucky enough to reside in Maximum City, you can get alcohol delivered right to your door. Despite the ‘z’ in its name, Living Liquidz offers a wide variety of alcoholic beverages, making it one of the most reliable portals for ordering liquor. While Living Liquiz has a number of locations nationwide (and more are opening as we speak), its delivery is presently only available in Mumbai; however, this should change in the near future to become a standard practise wherever it opens the door. RTDs, beer, tequila, whisky, and flavoured liqueurs are all available. Undoubtedly, t he widest array of spirits available for delivery at your door with only a few clicks.
2. WineWell | Mumbai
When it comes to the delivery of liquor, Mumbaikars unquestionably seem to be on better ground.

The only drawback is that they temporarily do not offer online delivery, but if you give them a call, they would still take your purchase and deliver it to you. If you’re not within a 5-kilometer radius, phone and ask first because distances and minimum purchase criteria will be taken into account.
3. Theka Service | Delhi
This portal requires a little extra effort, but it is unquestionably an original idea. Theka Service, which is essentially a “OLX for booze,” let users to buy and sell spirits. Similar to OLX, you upload images of the bottles you want to sell (new and sealed only), and the buyer arranges for pick-up. Similar to this, you may search the site for bottles that work and have runners pick them up and bring them to you.

4. Wine Park | Mumbai

Over 200 different varieties of wine are available for you to choose from. Vermentinos, Cariicantes, Pinotage, Tempranillos, and of course good ol’ Malbecs, proseccos, champagnes, and ports are all available.
