Big Easy Drinks is not going to let the Adelaide public go thirsty during the coronavirus ordeal.

To stave off a prohibition-like conditions, they’ve got a team of bartenders and FOH superstars from their venues (NOLA, The Stag and Anchovy Bandit) delivering beer, wine, spirits and boozy “care packages” to the doors of those of us drying up in isolation.

The online bottle shop focuses on getting Australian independent booze to South Australians at home, all the while keeping Nola, The Stag and Anchovy Bandit’s staff employed, utilising them as delivery drivers.

It’s is a win-win for alcohol consumers and the local economy.

“Although tough on our venues, this time is also very damaging to our suppliers who use us to showcase and support their produce,” the Big Easy team says via a statement.

“By ordering drinks from Big Easy Drinks, you are keeping our staff employed and our amazing local booze industry rolling.”


Frothies available on Big Easy Drinks’ digital shelves include Little Bang Brewing, Swell Brewery, Youngblood Beer, Mismatch Brewing Co. and Lobethal Bierhaus. Buy a six-pack and you’ll get 10 per cent off.

If you’re craving something vinous, there’s Sailor Seeks, Tomfoolery, Range Life, Hustle & Vine, Massena, amongst other producers.

If you’re after something harder, select from liquor options like Ounce Gin, Applewood, Never Never, Starward Whisky and heaps more

The Big Easy survival kits do the deciding for you. 

These include “a Bartender’s breakfast”: a hospitality worker’s pack to get you through the day, which includes locally roasted Hark Coffee, Never Never Triple Juniper Gin and Bobar Pinot Noir; a gin-lovers paradise, “Forgive Me Father For I Have ‘Ginned’”: Threefold Aromatic Gin, 78 Degrees Sunset Gin, tonic water and a garnish pack; and Nick Oswald’s guide to “bangin’ vinos”, with wines from Stoke Wines, Brave New Wine, Vinteloper and Ravensworth. 

Big Easy Drinks bar staff will also be available to chat via the website, to help narrow down your selection and answer any drink-related queries.

Same-day delivery is guaranteed for anything ordered before 3pm, and orders are valid up to 5km from the city. There is no delivery fee for orders over $100.
