You’re having a party for your wine-connoisseur friends, but your budget can’t accommodate their favorite expensive labels. And your guests arrive in one hour.
Time to panic? Maybe not, if you download a new liquor delivery app that can suggest less-expensive replicas of high-ticket wines, beers and spirits and deliver them within an hour.
Liquor Limo, started in May by Stapleton resident Ari Walker, is an app that allows consumers to get home delivery from neighborhood liquor stores. App users can also access Liquor Limo’s Replica DNA Match database: more than 10,000 beverage brands whose chemical makeup is compared to find “matches” with consumers’ favorites.
“It’s like having an expert in your smartphone,” said Walker, president of Liquor Limo. “So much of what we know about beer, wine and spirits is subjective, including the marketing haze that causes us to pay more for particular brands.
What’s the quantifiable chemistry? We create a profile from what you like in order to benchmark a taste, aroma and texture. Even experts can’t tell the expensive wines from those identified as replicas. Consumers can save a lot on their liquor bill.”
He said the app also gives people the opportunity to explore. “The discovery engine can send you to unexpected places. It’s great for consumers who love to explore beer, wine and spirits but can’t afford the time to hang out at the liquor store.”
Walker said Liquor Limo partners with liquor stores all over the state. The minimum order for delivery is $25, with a $5 delivery charge. Orders over $50 get free delivery. Valid proof of age (21) must be included to download the app, and also be presented at the door on delivery.
