Websitehttps://www.reservebar.com
DescriptionReserveBar (www.reservebar.com) is the leading e-commerce platform for luxury spirits and champagne in the U.S. We enable consumers (as well as companies) to order the most esteemed bottles of alcohol in the world with the convenience of shipping across the United States for both self-consumption and gifting. The delivered beverage alcohol segment of the industry is in the earliest stage of growth. Currently, 50% of all alcohol is sold off-premise, and only 1.8% of sales is fulfilled via e-commerce and delivery or shipment. By way of comparison, over 14% of retail sales involve e-commerce and delivery, and off-premise dining and flowers are well over 20%. ReserveBar is close to closing an acquisition that will increase it's size significantly, while adding retail distribution with on-demand fulfillment ability (i.e. under and hour vs. shipment), and a more robust tech stack including an app. This is truly an exciting category poised for explosive growth!
