    Re: Where to buy AAA 10 year near BT Distillery?

    A retailer (and this is true of all retailers, not just booze) typically will raise prices on current stock when the replacement price goes up. It's likely these retailers are responding to a price increase from the distributor, who is responding to a price increase from the producer.

    Where to buy AAA 10 year near BT Distillery?

    I can 100% verify a significant increase on AAA in both liter and 1.75 liter sizes in Kentucky in the past 60 days from the distributor.

    Some stores will have more older inventory and may not adjust until they have to reorder.

    We try to stock up on good sellers just before increases. Sometimes it's to keep prices lower and other times it's to slowly increase the price rather than increasing it 10-15% instantly. With AAA they were out of 750s leading up to the increase and move to liters.

    However it is quite ironic that distributors very often run out of stock in the weeks leading up to a price increase and then the item magically appears in stock right after an increase. I have heard that often times a load containing those items is sitting in the parking lot "in transit".
