German supermarket chain Aldi has partnered with grocery delivery service Instacart to launch a nationwide US delivery service for wine and beer.

The delivery service is only available at locations permitted by state and local laws.

Aldi’s online alcohol delivery now reaches 60% of the 1,400 stores.

Aldi US corporate buying vice president Scott Patton said: “The busy holiday season is fast approaching, making convenience more important than ever, and adding alcohol delivery to our online offerings is one more way Aldi saves you time.

“Our award-winning wines range from less than $5 for 90-point rated Evanta Malbec to $12 for premium offerings, such as 92-point rated Peaks & Tides Cabernet Sauvignon. You can have a bottle delivered to your doorstep in as fast as an hour.”

The two companies have been associated since 2017 and the partnership has seen a significant increase in the number of delivery locations.

Currently, almost every Aldi store in over 10,000 ZIP codes have online grocery delivery service available.

Instacart retail vice president Chris Rogers said: “Instacart is proud to expand its partnership with Aldi and reach across more Aldi aisles so customers can order wine and beer in addition to groceries and household essentials for delivery to their door.

“By introducing Aldi alcohol to the Instacart marketplace, we’re making it even easier for customers to get all their favourites from Aldi delivered in as fast as an hour.”
