There's an App for Ordering Bottle Service at Home

July 23, 2014 | by SAMANTHA NEUDORF

Throwing a party and running low on the most important ingredient: the booze? Download THIRSTIE for delivery within the hour. 

THIRSTIE app.

When it's inconvenient for you to run out to the nearest liquor store (i.e. your guests have already arrived), or you're tired of scouring Miami for your favorite bottle, there's an app you'll want to have ready on your laptop, iPhone or Android device. THIRSTIE lets users order spirits for home delivery from its partner liquor stores in your area—think Seamless, but for alcohol only.

THIRSTIE launched in Miami earlier this month after serving thirsty residents of New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Download the app or visit THIRSTIE.com, enter your home address, and scroll through beer, wine, and liquor in stock within your delivery range. Users can narrow down the list by liquor type or search for a particular spirit. Then simply place your order (delivery services vary slightly by location and hours), have your ID ready, and your booze will arrive within an hour. 

New Yorkers got the first taste of THIRSTIE when it was created back in February. The idea was to keep cocktail culture alive in the city by bringing bottle service to customers' homes, according to CEO Devaraj Southworth. The choice to bring THIRSTIE to Miami was easy thanks to the city's energy and excitement. "Miami sets the trends for the mixology scene, with both mixologists and venues offering the newest techniques and cocktail offerings," Southworth told us. "We wanted to launch THIRSTIE in a city that truly knows how to enjoy themselves." 

THIRSTIE users will soon be able to find specific bottles from home. "We are planning to offer a wish list feature for special-request bottles in the near future," he said. Cheers!
