How to get booze delivered during lockdown

As we enter into a new (hopefully shorter) period of isolation, the convenience of delivery once again reigns supreme. To save you a trip to the shops, here's a list of ways to get quality booze delivered to your house.

So we are, once more, stuck back indoors – hopefully just for six days – but that means we now get to reap the benefits of all the hard work and pivoting (sorry) done in the early days fo the pandemic.

Restaurants and booze providers quickly found ways to capture a housebound audience back in March and April, and have been permitted to trade once again in what has been dubbed Lockdown 2: The Circuit Breaker.

In order to drink to your continued good health throughout the next six days (and possibly eight more after that) all the while supporting local small businesses, browse the options below.

Na zdorov’ye.


Big Easy Drinks

Our good friends at The Stag Public House, NOLA, Yiasou George and Anchovy Bandit pooled their resources earlier in the year and created Big Easy Drinks.

The online drinks store stocks a generous range of South Australian tipples, and orders over $100 are delivered free.

Browse the range here.


Juice Traders

In order to keep money flowing through the tills during Lockdown 1: The Disruptor, CBD natural wine bar Leigh Street Wine Room launched a wine delivery service called Juice Traders.

Expect the same slurpable range of natural wines available at the bar, sadly without the accompaniment of chef Nathan Sasi’s cooking.

If you order before 3pm, you’ll get same-day delivery within 15 kilometres of the city, so get your order in early to pair something with your still-quite-delicious home-cooked meal.

LOC Bottle Shop

LOC Bottle Shop founder Olivia Moore wanted to launch a bricks-and-mortar bottle shop; however, South Australia has some ridiculously tight restrictions on that sort of thing.

And so, back in march, Livia launched LOC Bottle Shop as an online store, and is very soon to launch LOC Bottle Bar (once this Parafield cluster mess is dealt with).

LOC specialises in natural and low-intervention wines, and has a South Australian, national, and international focus.

Order by 3pm and spend $100, and you’ll get FREE same-day delivery.
