Majestic launch '30 minute' wine, champagne and spirit deliveries in Milton Keynes

Residents in Milton Keynes can now get deliveries of wine, beer, champagne and spirits to their door within 30 minutes.

Off licence Majestic Wines have launched on Deliveroo in the city meaning you are never more than half an hour away from your favourite drink.

Bosses said the wines are specifically chosen for matching with food, and that prices on the app will be the same as in store.

Deliveries are from the Majestic store on Grafton Retail Park in Oldbrook, Milton Keynes.

Current best-sellers for Majestic's Deliveroo customers during lockdown include the LB7 Portuguese red from Lisbon, as well Miraval rose - the wine famous for being owned by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

The range also includes Whispering Angel rose, Bread & Butter Chardonnay California, Rioja Reserva Marques de Riscal, Tattinger Bru Reserve NV Champagne, Laurent Perrier La Cuvee Champagne and Plantation Rum Barbados, and many others.

Vice president of new business at Deliveroo Ajay Lakhwani told Hull Live: "We are delighted to announce this major expansion with Majestic Wine, the UK's leading specialist in wine, and play our role in making sure households have access to everything they need and want during Covid-19."

"The roll-out of Majestic Wine on Deliveroo across 80 sites in the UK is great news for our customers across the country, who can now enjoy an even wider choice of delicious wine, delivered in as little as under 30 minutes."

Robert Cooke, Majestic's chief commercial officer, added: "Wine is something which continues to provide joy and discovery within your own walls, even in the face of Covid-19."

"We are always looking for new ways to help our customers keep making those discoveries whilst in lockdown and beyond, as safely and interactively as possible."
