    Michigan liquor list

    The question of whether a particular bottle is available in Michigan came up in chat tonight. Michigan folks, have you seen http://liquorli.st? It's cool.

    You can also go here: http://www.dleg.state.mi.us/mlcc/pricebook/webprbk.txt
    Highlight and copy, paste and save as a text file, (or just right-click and save the link as a text file) open the text file in a spreadsheet program, and sort it any way you like!

    Although I still do not see the Four Roses Single Barrel 2013 that I have seen in store.

    I too saw that or didn't see that in this case.
    I wonder what's up?
    Did you see it at only one store?

    I sort of assumed that b/c the liquor list includes previous Four Roses single barrel annual releases, the 2013 had no issues being distributed. I saw it (briefly) in 2 stores in the Ann Arbor area

    It is interesting to see the cost to the stores and the pricing changes. For example, Russell's Reserve dropped $4 per 750 ml. The margins look fairly tight from wholesale to retail. Obviously, volume is what leads to profitability.

    Re: Michigan liquor list

    Yup. Because of the way the state sets the minimum price, retailers are guaranteed to make at least a certain percentage of the "base price," which is the wholesale price plus 65% tax. Then there's more tax added on top of that for the end purchaser. We pay almost exactly twice the wholesale cost of booze in MI.
