Staying in just got much easier. Wine lovers, it’s your lucky day. SkipTheDishes announced that they will now be offer liquor delivery services through the popular food delivery app. You can now order some wine to pair with your Cheese(cake Factory)!


Food Delivery App, SkiptheDishes, Launches Wine, Beer & Spirits Delivery in Calgary, Edmonton and Fort McMurray

SkiptheDishes first launched wine, beer and spirits delivery services in British Columbia and Manitoba in 2017. With much success, the food delivery app has announced that they will be offering these delivery services in the cities: Calgary, Edmonton and Fort McMurray. The app will be joining apps like Drizly and Buzz Buddy in providing this service.


How does this work for SkiptheDishes’ delivery couriers?

In Alberta, workers serving alcohol are required to be of legal drinking age and obtain ProServe certification. SkiptheDishes will be requiring all of its independently contracted couriers who will be delivering alcohol to go through an onboarding process and obtain ProServe certificates.





How do you order wine on the SkiptheDishes app?

You can order wine on the SkiptheDishes app by selecting a liquor store/retailer available in your area in the app (preferably one that’s close by to get a lower delivery fee) and order your choice of liquor (wine, obviously). The retailer’s stock will be listed like a menu within their SkipTheDishes page.


Do you have to be 18 to order alcohol on SkipTheDishes?

Yes, you must be of legal drinking age in your province to order liquor using the SkiptheDishes app. In order to have your wine delivered to you, you will be required to show ID to your courier and the name on the ID must match the name on the SkiptheDishes account. If it doesn’t match or you’re unable to provide legal photo identification, your order will not be delivered and you can be subject to a penalty of $20.
