A new app wants to deliver alcohol to Canadians’ front doors.
New York-based Thirstie is piloting booze delivery in Toronto and Ottawa. The alcohol-on-demand app, available on Android now and iOS later this week, allows customers to select products from their smartphone and then await delivery for a $10 fee.
It’s not a brand new idea, but CEO Devaraj Southworth believes Thirstie offers the best experience.
Customers will be asked to confirm their age online, and also in person at point of delivery, the company says—though Thirstie suggests the delivery company is ultimately responsible for ensuring buyers are of legal age.
Ontario’s LCBO may be Thirstie’s biggest competiton, as it says e-commerce with home delivery is coming in 2016.
