Scotch/Bourbon pricing in Ontario

Euphonic | Aug 30, 2012 07:30 AM

Long time lurker here but I felt the need to have another topic on this.

What is going on with this? I have not been into these two spirits that long (a yr tops) and pricing was ridiculous when I got into it but you could still find the odd gem for a decent price.
Compare to world/US pricing and everything is so marked up here.

Now the prices have GONE UP even more in the last couple of months. I dont get it. Are they trying to discourage people in Ontario from enjoying these drinks? Are they trying to use this segment to offset any higher fuel costs they have?(which they shouldnt since gas prices are about the same as they were last yr)

I think its out of control and in no way can I justify the majority of the pricing that they have on things.

Beer hasnt changed, neither has most wine. What gives?

Ideas? Thoughts?

Its very very frustrating. I shouldnt have to devote such a high percentage of income on a small hobby like this.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
