One of the worst things that can happen at a house party is running out of alcohol, especially if you live in New South Wales and it's past 10pm (that's when you whip out that weird bottle of Port that's been sitting in your kitchen for months).
You have to find someone sober enough to quickly nip to the shops to pick up a case or two to ensure the good times roll.
But those days appear to be over, after BWS announced it would start delivering alcohol straight to your front door.
This gift from the booze gods is free if you spend more than $100, but costs $10 for anything under. That's less than a six pack of Teds or even a four-litre goon sack of your favourite fruity lexia. But to qualify for the service, you have to spend a minimum $20 (which isn't really that hard).
BWS says customers can order the alcohol through an app that will reportedly be like other food delivery companies, and most requests can be completed within an hour.
The company says: "We'll send you updates from the time your order is placed, right through to when your order has been collected and is on its way. For those of you wanting up to the minute updates, we provide real time driver tracking so you can follow your order and find out where it's currently located."
To keep within the rules, no one under the age of 18 can accept the delivery, you have to show ID on arrival and the package can't be left unattended at your house.
It's already been rolled out across locations in Sydney and Melbourne, but it will eventually be available in every BWS in the country. However, there will be some spots that the beer, wine and spirits retailer won't be able to go.
In a statement it says: "We're in the process of rolling out delivery across Australia. There are however some areas that we cannot deliver to, as these are classified by the Australian Government as dry zones or Australian islands that are classified as international waters.
If you find that we do not currently deliver to your area, you can request to be notified by selecting the 'Notify Me' option in the checkout, which will ensure that you are one of the first people to know once delivery is available to your location."
Bring on the booze!
