A raft of new liquor delivery services have come on the market in the past few years, each offering relatively similar services. Sourced Craft Cocktails out of Austin, Texas, is banking that people want more. Their new cocktail delivery service promises not only to deliver supplies and equipment for your cocktails, but to teach you to make them in your home.
Within three hours of a customer placing an order, a “certified Sourced mixologist” will arrive at the door bearing cocktail supplies. The delivery-bartender will then lead a short demonstration on how to mix the selected cocktails or show a video featuring the startup’s creative director Brian Floyd, bar manager at Austin’s excellent Weather Up.
The rotating cocktail menu, designed by Floyd, features classics such as Old Fashioneds and French 75s, but also some regionally themed drinks including the Texas Mule and Texas Paloma. Sourced CEO and founder Tim Angelillo launched the service specifically to help home bartenders host parties, so cocktail packages come in orders of six drinks ($50, serves two people), 12 drinks ($75, serves four to six), and 30 drinks ($160, serves 10 to 15).
