A New Look For The Oak Barrel!

09/12/2015

If you’ve experienced some interruptions on our website this week, be assured it’s all been for a good cause.

If you haven’t noticed, please take a look around – The Oak Barrel has a new website.

Arguably a long time coming, we’re very excited to be able to offer our customers an enhanced, streamlined and easy to use platform for our products. There might be a few teething issues in the first week (feel free to call us on 02 9264 3022 if you encounter any) and we’ll slowly be populating the products in store onto the website.

But what’s new on the website? Here’s a few of the key features we’ve added to the system.

MEMBERS' PRICING

Yes! For those of you who are paid-up Oak Barrel Cellar Club members your 10% discount is now available through the store. Your existing accounts have been set-up and if you haven’t yet received an email with log-in details, please give us a call or email info@oakbarrel.com.au so we can get you logged in as a member.

Not sure what membership is? A once-off $25 fee grants you 10% off across the store (bar special discounted products) and cheaper event tickets - for life. All the details are here.

PICK UP IN STORE

Live local? Want to purchase a bottle before someone else does but don’t want it delivered? We now offer a Pick Up In Store option, just select it from the delivery options in the checkout.

SEARCH FOR WHAT YOU REALLY WANT

Want to search for whiskies over 50% alcohol? What about French reds? What have we got from GlenDronach? Anything from 1985? Our new left-hand sidebar filters between styles, prices, countries, regions, producers and more. Tick the ‘New Products’ box to have the latest additions to the site appear first.

MIXED SIX PACKS

You’ll now be able to purchase wines in mixed six packs and reap the discounts for bottles that have mixed six prices direct through the website. Even better is that for members your 10% discount is on top of the mixed six prices.

BEERS & CIDERS

With one of Australia’s best ranges of craft beers and ciders (700-odd), we will start to populate them online from January 2016. In the interim Ian’s regular – and exhaustive – list of what’s in store is available here.

There’s a lot more to come in the weeks and months ahead as we add more and more to the site, it’s a bloody exciting time here at the Oak Barrel!
