Weekend or not, it’s always good to have a stock of good alcohol in your bar at home. Impromptu plans or guests may need a drink or two, right? And when it’s time to replenish, check out Hops Cork En Bottle, a distinguished chain of liquor stores in Mumbai that has 12 outlets and an online store!
On their e-store, choose from a list of over 1,000 different types of liquor brands and more than 300 wine labels selected from the globe over.
The brand name clearly defines what the store is all about –Hops (flower clusters used for beer-flavouring) Cork (inevitable part of a wine bottle) and Bottle (where you drink from, of course!).
There is a varied list for every kind of drinker – the special edition for the aristocrat type, the scotch and single malt for the gentleman, beer for the guzzlers, tequila for the party people, gin and cognac for the seasoned pros and the likes.
If you live near their stores in Sion, Bandra, Juhu, Matunga, Andheri, Chembur, Dharavi, Kalachowki and Lower Parel, you won’t be charged for home delivery. For areas other than the abovementioned, a minimum order of Rs. 4,000 will have to be placed. High indeed! However, they do claim to have prices that are lesser than your neighbourhood liquor store.
The whole idea of starting this online shop is to make alcohol shopping convenient and more accessible. Besides, we rather have liquor at our doorstep than an abandoned baby!
Rum, brandy, whisky, vodka, beer or wine – what are you going to order to keep your ‘spirits’ alive?
