Forged in the fire of a global pandemic, brought about by community request; Laneway Liquor has arrived
Laneway Liquor is a new online retail project from Nathanial Hatwell and Matt Swieboda the minds behind: Love, Tilly Devine; Dear Sainte Éloise; Fabbrica; Ragazzi Wine and Pasta – a way to make the kinds of wines and drinks that they’ve championed in their venues for the past ten years available Australia wide.
During last years’ lockdown, when due to necessity; Love, Tilly Devine served as an ad-hoc delivery service and drive-through bottle shop, the team was blown away by the positive community response.
Although they’d never really considered moving things online, they felt it was their public duty to share the love. And by love, they obviously mean DELICIOUS WINE + DRINKS DELIVERED.
It turns out it takes a long time to fill a website with words and photos (who knew?) but almost a year on, Laneway Liquor is finally here.
Ever since the inception of Love, Tilly Devine, back in 2010 the team has worked with the best and brightest winemakers. Now, with Laneway Liquor they continue that tradition supporting winemakers who strive towards making wines as purely as possible. People who are working their grapes using organic or biodynamic processes with as little artifice in the winery as possible. Wines that are lower in alcohol and oak, that value terroir, freshness, complexity and some just plain fun wines too.
The team promises that things are going to constantly grow and evolve based on community feedback. Some of this feedback has already led to them offering same-day delivery in inner city Sydney, adding a tight selection of whisky + saké and most excitingly developing a sommelier curated wine subscription club, with the option to book a free sommelier consultation to help perfectly tailor your subscription to your palate.
They are off to a strong start, their online store is just like their venues and features an immaculate selection of wines and spirits.
