I have already started recommending this store to my friends and family, hassle free with a superb selection of wine.
Not having used this service before, I was a little anxious about the outcome. Needn't have worried, as the whole thing went like clockwork - dates, times and items selected being exactly what was ordered. Delivery instructions were carried out to the letter, even down to the "leave in porch if out" request. Recipient was absolutely delighted, as indeed am I at the speedy efficiency of the entire transaction. Well done, shall certainly feel confident in using your services again!
I'd looked on Google Groceries but the rum I was looking for (Koko Kanu) was about £4 cheaper at TheDrinkShop.com. Payment was fast and simple despite the website being optimised for desktop browsing I managed to place the order via my phone, sitting in a bar drinking the aforementioned nectar.
The order came within 4 days which was slightly slower than promised on the website, but very well packaged. Would definitely order from these guys again.
First time using this company, they were recommended by my daughter. Went the extra mile to make sure that delivery arrived on time, which was great as it was a birthday present for someone. Will use this company again for sure
I can't review yet as unfortunately neither of the two orders I placed have been received, which isn't a great start really. You make the point that this is the responsibility of your couriers, not the drink shop, but it was the drink shop I contracted and paid to deliver two bottles as presents, so it is your responsibility to ensure that this happens.
The first was a birthday present, and I had left instructions to call the recipient if he was not home. He was not at home and didn't receive a call and the courier tracking system states that the delivery was made. We can only hope that the driver left it with a neighbour, but have not been able to check yet, as the recipient is now out of the country. His phone still works though, and there have been no calls from either neighbours or couriers.
The second was a bottle of whiskey for my father on Fathers Day. I live overseas so booked delivery for Friday 2 days before so he would know I had been thinking of him ahead of time and not made a last minute panic purchase. This didn't arrive and the tracking system says it is due to be delivered on Monday.
So basically both of my orders missed their intended mark of making someone feel special on their day. I'm disappointed.
If you're interested in stocking your bar with unusual bottles The Drink Shop will have it at a competitive price and will deliver it swiftly by courier. I've used them several times and wouldn't dream of going anywhere else.
it was a very straightforward process to book and I was really pleased with the speed of the delivery. We were out at the time but a neighbou,r five doors up accepted it for us. I was impressed that they persisted with delivery as all our other neighbours were out too. Our 4 bottles of St Germain were packaged very securely too.
Everything about my online shopping experience with The Drink Shop (including the damn fine bottle of whisky) was great. The only reason they don't receive the student of the year award (a perfect 5 o' 5) is that I think the online search functionality can be definitely be improved (making recommendations based on certain criteria, for example) - especially for a novice like myself!
Fantastic gift. Well presented. Arrived In excellent condition...well secured....packaged with strAw I presentation box..timely delivery....definitely use again...lovely surprise
ive had some bad experiences with other places sending bottles improperly packaged, looked more like they had been packed by their children. I can say that i am very impressed with how the drink shop packaged the item i purchased. Not a broken bottle in sight, which was a relief as it was a gift for my husband. Which is going down very nicely with him (and smoothly). No more supermarket Brandy for him
I like Drinkshop.com because they have a huge variety of drinks to choose from and they offer a fast reliable service.
Had a lovely experience, my only gripe is that the bottle was not secured inside the box, and could have broke.... i wouldn't know where i stand it that was the case. i did expect the bottle to be wrapped in bubble wrap at least, but just in a cardboard box, which was damaged when i took receipt from my neighbour
I ordered this for my husbands birthday as its is one of his favourite drinks. He was very happy to open his present and see a bottle of Koko Kanu. Its good to be able to find it online, and at a great price too. It was delivered very quickly and was packaged very well. Excellent service.
What can I say? This website is a real gem. If you are looking for something extra special at a good price whereas your local places (supermarkets etc.) don't have it, then this is a one stop place to get it. I have been up to Scotland a few times and sampled some knockout whiskies that you just don't get on the high street and it is a real find to be able to get these outstanding whiskies in england. Also there has been the few bottles of cognac that you can never get on the high street. So thank-you thedrinkshop.com for fufilling a much needed service.
Excellent customer service and a good price for hard to obtain drinks
You will be spoilt for choice at this web site. Make up your mind BEFORE you look at the selection offered or you will be stuck sitting there at the computer with the dribbles running out of ye.
The Drink Shop provides a great service. The order is always well-packed and arrives quickly.
But the main reason I use them is to surprise my husband with brands and blends that he's never heard of, so I'm never at a loss for birthday and Christmas presents.
I'm not an expert on drinks nor is my Husband a heavy drinker (I realised that I made him sound like one!) but I find the choices provided by this Company, amazing!
I recommend The Drink Shop most highly.
Have been using this company and web site for years. It is easy to navigate and pick the products. It is easy to pay for the goods and you can add a message if it is for a gift and you can even leave a message for the courier if you want it leaving with a neighbour or in my case I maybe on nights so am a little slower getting to the door.
The goods always come very securely wrapped with plenty of support to protect their precious contents.
Have recommended before to my friends and I look forward to my next foray into their shelves of goodies.
I found their website really clear and easy to use. The purchase was carefully wrapped and promptly delivered. Well done to all at the drinks shop
I have used this company before and they have always been reliable. There aren't many companies that sell my husbands favourite brandy, Keo 5 kings, but the drink shop always delivers quickly and are reasonably priced.
Tracked down a great pudding wine at a great price, not an easy wine to find and much cheaper than elsewhere, turned up quickly and I would use them again,
This was the first time we had bought from this site. We looked for a specific wine. It worked well, and I would buy again from this company.
Whitley Neill, delicious, citrus note to your g&t, fantastic
Martin Miller, amazingly smooth for a premium strength gin, great in martini
Great service, recommended
These 6 Duff beers in bottles was bought for my sons 21st birthday as a extra surprise and turned out to be his favourite prezzie, he loved them as he's a keen Simpsons fan. Only wish I'd ordered 24 so the rest of us could have tried them LOL.
This site is easy to use and perfect for all occasions. We needed specific alcohol from a particular country. So The Drink Shop really helped us find exactly what we were looking for. Easy to order, spot on delivery and the packaging was perfect, no breakages at all. The beer was even nice too. Would definitely use again and recommend to friends
I ordered this two days before I needed it due to getting paid late and it turned up bang on time. The service was amazing. The choice is also excellent. We've ordered from them many times now and will continue to do so.
Unbelieveable, had my order in a week before my cocktail party and got it a week after my party because the agave syrup wasn't available at the same time! You would think the drinks company would email me that was the case and ask if I can wait or if I want my alcohol straight away rather than just keep me waiting. Also there was no mention of any delay when I ordered or I would not have oredered.
This was my second order in as many weeks so I was a repeat customer. I will not be a customer again.
