It's a well-known fact that you can get (almost) anything on Amazon, from summer houses to robot dogs. One thing I've never thought of buying though is alcohol. But if you're looking to restock your drinks cabinet, the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale could be the time to do it.   

Not thinking of Amazon when it comes to drinking was definitely an oversight. After all, I used Amazon for my grocery shopping, random Indian spices I couldn't find elsewhere, and even glassware but for alcohol, I still headed to my local off licence or supermarket.  

If you scour the Amazon deals pages, you'll find a full section of discounted bottles (including alcohol-free options), that can all be delivered to your door for free, at prices less than anywhere else. Here are some of the best deals I found today.
