21. SpiritedGifts – Spirited Gifts has one of the most comprehensive list of alcoholic drinks on their store. It’s hard to pick from their monthly clubs, but if you’re looking for discounted, full-sized bottles (with freebies sometimes), then check their “gift of the month” clubs.

If you’re trying to find your drink of choice, and want to taste-test 30ml adorable little bottles of brandies, vodkas, gins, rums, whiskies, and other alcoholic drinks, this is the place to check it out.

The 2020 pandemic pushed virtual tasting to the front and center, and it looks like it’s here to stay. If you don’t have the funds to travel to distilleries or prefer enjoying your drink from the comforts of your home, watch out for similar virtual tasting events. Depending on the event you choose, you may be shipped a few sample bottles so you could participate in the online tasting.

Other Ways to Get Free Alcohol

Aside from the list above, you can also find samples of alcoholic drinks in the following places:

  • Local liquor store. Sometimes, manufacturers ship out alcoholic drinks to the liquor store along with free samples. The local stores then give them away to their customers (sometimes randomly, other times as part of a purchase). You can also ask the stores for possible samples if you stop by their locations.
  • Local grocery store. You may not be getting free samples of liquor here, but you might be lucky to find Buy 1, Get 1 promos of your go-to drinks. Often, the “Get 1” is a new release that manufacturers want consumers like you to try out.
  • Local bars. It’s highly unlikely that you’ll be able to take home bottles of free alcohol samples. However, there’s a good chance you can get a free shot or two of new vodka, whiskey, tequila, rum, gin, brandy, or cocktails that the bar is planning to launch soon.
  • Hotels that offer free drinks. There are some hotels that offer free drinks daily or weekly. For example:
    • Kimpton Hotels – Since 1981, the hotel has been hosting wine hour from 5 to 6 pm every day.
    • Embassy Suites by Hilton  – The hotel complimentary drinks included are wine, spirits, cocktails and even snacks, available from 530 to 730 every night.
    • Residence Inn by Marriott – This hotel has hosts their themed RI MIX happy hour days (on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays)
    • Staybridge Suites – This hotel hosts their free “Social Happy Hour” every Monday-Wednesday.
    • Homewood Suites by Hilton – There is an evening social at this hotel from Monday through Thursday around 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm.
    • Franklin Hotel (New York) – Mingle with fellow guests and enjoy the hotel’s free wine and cheese reception every afternoon from 5 pm to 6:30 pm.
    • Hotel Angeleno (Los Angeles) – Guests could enjoy daily wine hour every 5:30 to 6:30 pm.
  • Restaurants with happy hour. Unlike hotels with free happy hour, the restaurant version of this promo doesn’t involve FREE alcohol. Instead, many chain restaurants mix their food with lower-priced drinks between $2 to $6. Examples of this include Chili’s, TGIF, The Cheesecake Factory, P.F. Chang’s, Olive Garden, Texas Roadhouse, Outback Steakhouse, and so on.
  • Airlines. If you’re lucky and you took a flight on St. Patrick’s Day or other similar celebrations, you might enjoy free alcohol drinks up in the air. Just like what Southwest Airlines did back in 2018. Check the promo page of your preferred airline if you’re traveling soon.

You can also stalk specific liquor brands such as Jose Cuervo on social media and their respective websites (and newsletters). It isn’t guaranteed that you’ll receive a free drink when you sign up, but being up-to-date with their promotions gives you a better chance at joining future deals and promos especially near occasions like Father’s Day and Christmas.

Other Free Alcohol Samples: Beer and Beyond

We’ll be posting a separate post about free beers, so watch out for that one if you prefer beer over hard liquor.

If you’re looking for free alcohol because of an upcoming birthday or father’s day, don’t miss our post about free birthday stuff, a BIG list of free food, and of course, free ice cream to seal off your celebrations.
