    Costco Bourbon?

    Hey, anyone know where Costoco is getting their boubon? Apparently it's a distillery with "two names"... OoooK.

    Anyone know who is supplying this bourbon?

    Not sure what you mean. The COSTCO here on the Big Island has only Maker's Mark and Jim Beam white. They're both owned by Beam Global which is owned by Fortune Brands. The store here also carries Jack Daniel's black. All are in 1.75 jugs.

    Costco's in store brand is Kirkland Signature. They "make" many items under this brand. I like Costco and have found this Kirkland Signature brand generally offers very good value, examples include an excellent EV Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar. In certain states, Costco directly sells liquor. I know they have done Kirkland Signature versions of Vodka and Tequila, so guessing they now have a bourbon.

    It's premium private label warehouse club Bourbon. The Kirkland stuff is way better than Sam's Choice.

    I haven't seen a bourbon. They have a fantastic scotch whisky they put out each year. It is a Macallan 18yr. Only difference is it is aged 15 yrs in Oak and three additional years in Sherry butts. The Macallan 18 yr is aged for 18 yrs in Sherry.

    The Macallan 18 yr - $150.00

    The Kirkland Macallan 18 yr - $59.99

    This reminds me of when my wife was at Sams Club. She came home and said I almost bought you a bottle of "Members Mark". Keep in mind that the Sams Club store brand of food and other grocery items is Members Mark. I thought wow that's interesting, then pulled out my bottle of Makers Mark and said did it look like this? Sure did she said...

    Re: Costco Bourbon?

    Does anyone know if the liquor stores in Costco and Sams club actually check for membership cards? I used to be a member of both many years ago but they moved out of my community so I let my membership lapse. My memory is that they do not check for membership cards in the liquor stores. Do they?
