    nothing makes you want something more than not being able to get/have it

    Re: Appears the Maker's shortage is real...

    Anyone else find the recent price increase in MM a bit odd? About 2 months ago the price went from $44 to $54 over night for a 1.75. That is crazy.

    Looks to have gone up from $40 to $45 for a 700ml 80 proof bottle here in Australia

    Definitely a price increase. We went from $45 to $50 on it.

    I hadn't noticed but then again I haven't looked. If Suntory takes over it will be interesting to see how these brands shift out in the next couple of years.

    In my region, MM has dropped in price within the last year. It was $22-25, and now is $18.99 (750ml). It seemed to swap prices with OWA, right before the Weller lines dried up here.

    I believe regular MM 1.75L runs around $45 and MM46 750 mL around $40 in the Indy area. I really don't pay attention other than when it is on an aisle display.

    Regular makers 1.75. Mm46 is about 37 per 750.

    Suntory is about to pay 13.5 billion for beam. I would imagine price increases will be a regular occurrence until global demand for bourbon starts to decline.

    Beam already changed its pricing structure in KY for 2014 before the deal was announced. Price increases were minimal but they did away with "free" goods for higher volume sellers. They also lowered the case levels to get the top level pricing. It means that I don't have to buy 150-200 cases of beam at a time but I have to raise my prices slightly to make the same margins.

    Eric, I always appreciate your insight. It helps us to better understand what the retailers are facing and why prices increases are what they are. Thanks!

    Makers officially sponsored Justified last night and had 3-4 commercials going during it. One of them telling us how "sponsoring events" doesn't matter, hahaha.

    It's too bad there's no stock left for them to sell on this incredible marketing push.
