I recently bought a 1.75 liter bottle of Maker’s Mark and was shocked at a nearly $10 price hike. Previously, it had been 35.99 and now it is 44.59. When I asked the store owner, he claimed it had to do with the bad crop season this summer, which I do not believe.
But, it got me to thinking: How much do people in other states pay for alcohol? I’d be particularly interested in the Maker’s Mark price for the 1.75 liter bottle, but would like to know other prices as well. I would also be interested in knowing how your liquor stores are run: state-owned, privately owned or some other way I don’t have any idea of?
It may be a few days until I get back to this thread, but I will get back to it.
