BOSTON, April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Drizly, the first and largest alcohol e-commerce marketplace, brings a revolutionary way to shop for adult beverages to tens of thousands of additional Floridians, starting today. Drizly connects adults of legal drinking age with best-in-class local alcohol retailers like ABC Fine Wine & Spirits, making it easy for consumers to shop for the widest local selection of their favorite adult beverages, with full price transparency, by simply downloading the Drizly mobile app (App Store and Google Play) on a smartphone or tablet, or visiting Drizly.com. Orders can be delivered by local partner retailers within one hour or at a conveniently scheduled time.
Adults of legal drinking age in Gainesville, Jupiter, Melbourne, Naples, Tallahassee and West Palm Beach, can now use the Drizly platform to shop beer, wine and spirits available at local ABC Fine Wine & Spirits locations. Drizly provides its partner retailers with advanced mobile proprietary ID verification technology that enables delivery personnel to scan IDs and confirm that customers are of legal drinking age. There is no price markup, and a modest delivery fee of $5 per order remains the same no matter how many items are ordered. Beyond alcohol, Drizly users can shop for ice, mixers and more. For a limited time only, first time users can enter promo code ABC for $10 off their first purchase.

"Broadening our store base on the Drizly platform to 34 locations enables us to even better serve adults of legal drinking age by bringing our wide selection of beer, wine and spirits right to their fingertips, wherever they may be."
