If you're a longtime lover of natural wine, craft brews, and small-batch sake, you're likely no stranger to DRNKS. Widely considered one of the pioneering natty wine purveyors in the country, the online booze retailer has grown up and now has a bricks-and-mortar store in Alexandria.
Consider this the end of your search for novel pours. Every one of the selected drops is tasted and handpicked to ensure that only great bottles of vino reach the shelves—and make their way onto yours. DRNKS champions winemakers who make minimal intervention, organic, and biodynamic wine—and it certainly doesn't hurt that they're all beautifully packaged. In short, consider DRNKS your go-to fun wine consult (and skip the stuffy chats with your Penfolds-loving uncle).
Among some of the notable local winemakers are Momento Mori, Lucy M, and Borachio, as well as beers from Sydney-based breweries like Yulli's Brews and Grifter. Beyond Down Under drops, you'll find international bottles from Europe, from Georgia to Spain, plus small-batch sakes, Cantina Ok! margarita seltzers, amaros, vermouths, and whiskies. There's also a selection of low- and no-alcohol sips, too.
You'll also find specialty goods like hot sauces, oils, tinned fish, chips, and condiments. Really, it's a one-stop shop for all things tasty.
Trust us, you'll come to favour DRNK-ing at home rather than at the bar soon enough. And the run to the bottle-o has never been more of a treat.
