A new company, Drinkly, has launched in Edinburgh in response to demand for beers, wines and spirits, ordered from your phone. You can have your favourite beverage delivered in 1 hour. Meaning you can order it as you sit on the bus or as you leave work and your order will be there within the hour. Drinkly was founded by John Robertson, in 2016 because of his poor experience of buying drinks online with little attention to taste. Drinkly allows customers to buy their favourite alcoholic drinks conveniently to their home, office or to send as a gift in 1 hour or a day and time to suit them.
Drinkly allows customers to buy their favourite alcoholic drinks conveniently from their home, office or to send as a gift to be delivered in 1 hour or a day and time to suit them. Drinkly is part of a growing trend of on demand services such as Deliveroo and Uber that are making food and ordering a taxi more convenient. Drinkly started the service in November with busy professionals, customers gifting from all round the world and those that don’t live beside a decent off licence being their top customers.
John Robertson, Founder & CEO of Drinkly explains:
“My vision is to make the most incredible range of drinks brands convenient to buy online, using technology and his years of experience to recommend great new brands based on customer’s taste”.
Carrie from Meadowbank writes
”Great service, very reasonably priced, friendly and prompt delivery. Much needed in Edinburgh.”
