Just in Time for Winter, Thirstie Introduces First Mobile On-Demand Alcohol Delivery Service to Canada

Available via App and Desktop, Toronto & Ottawa Residents Can Discover Drink Inspiration on The Craft and Order From Thirstie

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 13, 2015) - With chilly weather approaching, leading alcohol discovery-to-delivery service, Thirstie, enters the Canadian market to bring wine, beer and spirits to consumers, no parka required. The service is available today in Toronto and Ottawa, with service to other Ontario cities coming soon, in time for the temperatures to drop. This is the premier mobile-first alcohol delivery and content-to-commerce experience for the Canadian market.

With delivery in one hour or less and a small convenience fee, Thirstie makes purchasing your favorite spirit, beer or wine as simple as a few taps or clicks. You can search on your phone or computer for your favorite brands -- or discover new ones.

"Our customers appreciate how fast and easy the Thirstie experience is," said founder and CEO Devaraj Southworth. "We're excited to introduce this same experience to the Canadian market, with Toronto and Ottawa leading the way as their cocktail and beer culture is booming."

Canadians looking for inspiration for their next party, cocktail hour, or evening by the fire can turn to Thirstie's recently launched editorial platform, The Craft, to discover the latest in mixology, hosting tips and booze news.
