Tipple is the newest alcohol delivery service to launch in Sydney.

The on-demand alcohol business from Melbourne will hit the streets from Thursday April 5 and offer 500 products delivered cold to your door in 30 minutes or less, with a flat delivery rate of $7 per order.

To start off, Tipple will service four zones within a five-kilometre radius of the city (the suburbs covered are Sydney CBD, Double Bay, Mascot, Dulwich Hill, Rozelle, Annandale, Enmore, Alexandria, Darlington, Paddington, Surry Hills, Darlinghurst and Potts Point), but there are plans to expand in the future.

Co-founder and CEO Ryan Barrington says Tipple is different from other on-demand alcohol delivery platforms because it offers a bottle-shop-comparable range. Products you can get are the usual suspects: Fat Yak, Mountain Goat and Four Pines beer, Moet and GH Mumm champagne, Absolute Vodka and Dirty Granny Apple cider.

“Shoppers are pressed for time; they want things now and in the easiest way possible, so we’re meeting the demands of tech-savvy millennial shoppers by giving them quite literally a bottle shop in their pocket with the Tipple app.”

Since launching in 2015, the service has expanded across 262 suburbs in Melbourne and offers more than 500 products. Barrington, who is from Sydney, is confident the service will do just as well here.

To celebrate the launch, the first 2000 people to sign up for an account before launch day will receive a $20 credit applied to their Tipple account.

Tipple is slated to launch Thursday April 5.
