New York, NY, February 26, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Thirstie, a new on-demand wine and spirits delivery service, today announced the public beta launch of its platform, designed to empower the growing cocktail culture in New York City. Developed by veterans from the payments and wine & spirits industries, Thirstie brings bottle service to your door within an hour.
The convenience of delivery bottle service eliminates the hunt for a liquor store, long lines and arduous bottle lugging back to your home. Thirstie is the only wine and spirits delivery service that can be accessed via the web, iOS and Android app, which enables a much wider audience to experience the convenience of delivery in comparison to other services available. Today, Thirstie’s real-time wine and spirits delivery service is available to all Manhattan addresses and parts of Brooklyn.
“We’re excited to bring a trusted delivery service with a level of expertise to help consumers plan their next party, restock their bar, or get a gift for an upcoming event,” said founder and CEO, Devaraj Southworth. “We understand the nature of the fragmented wine and spirits market and believe that our deep relationships, coupled with our platform built by experts from the mobile and payments industries, will ensure that the quality of the customer experience goes beyond expectations.”
Thirstie offers a number of shopping tools built to enhance the purchase experience, as well as a curated inventory to ensure that the customer’s purchase is in stock. Additionally, Thirstie offers drink recipes, party tips and culture commentary on its official Thirstie Blog, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. Thirstie plans to bring other special offers to its platform in the future.
Thirstie partners with wine and spirits retailers to help them adapt to the changing market, offering a multichannel marketing opportunity they can leverage to help grow their business. With Thirstie, merchants can convert mobile prospects into paying customers and increase retention rates.
“Thirstie is a great tool for helping my business reach new customers and to keep them coming back,” said Daniel Mensch, owner of Pier Wines. “As a small merchant, I don’t have a lot of time to implement and train employees to use complex ordering systems. Thirstie keeps it simple and the merchant dashboard is much easier to use than other services out on the market.”
