About Us

Does dinner-time feel like a chore? Have you lost your joie de vivre when it comes to cooking? Enter The Gourmet; your dedicated online destination for the very best fresh food, pantry essentials and liquor. In other words, we’re a bunch of foodies and wine lovers who are passionate about – you guessed it – eating and drinking!

We source the best quality produce from farmers, providores and producers across Australia and internationally, to bring you the very best food and liquor has to offer – direct to your door. We operate nationally and deliver to almost every postcode in Australia, so no matter what you’re craving – we’ve got you covered.

The Gourmet started in 2014 as The Meat Merchant, focused on providing our customers with Australia’s freshest quality meat. With your help, we quickly grew and began spreading our wings and expanding our palate to include pantry staples, before adding wine to our repertoire and becoming The Gourmet you know and love today. We now host over 3000 different products sitewide!

Just like our tastes change, so does the produce at The Gourmet. We pride ourselves on continually sourcing the very best, meaning you’re guaranteed to find something new and exciting every time you shop with us.
