In some states where Costco can sell liquor directly inside the warehouse (e.g. CA), you do need to be a Costco member to purchase liquor. In other states (e.g. TX), you do not need to be a Costco member, but the prices are not as good anyway.
You are incorrect. In CA you do not need a membership to buy liquor at Costco.
I agree ... I m in austin and i've seen better prices at specs as compared to costco...
OT - Check out Twin liquors. It is the best I have seen here in san antonio but only if you buy multiple bottles. (I believe they have austin locations too)
Basically it is like this, if you buy one bottle of something the price is competitive (but usually at the high end of competitive) with all other liquor stores, but they give you a big discount for buying two bottles at once.
As an example, I use Jim Beam in some of my marinades, specifically for pork loin, (though I don't mind drinking it too some times - to the chef go the spoils - ha), anyway 1-1.75L bottle is about a dollar to a dollar and a half higher at Twin liquors than at all of the other stores, but if I buy two at a time, they come average out to 3.5 dollars LESS than anywhere else.
On Topic: Sorry OP, this does look like an excellent price on Chivas. I may have to hit up costco and see if we have the same deal. TU.
I just called the Costco Liquor store at I10 & Hwy 1604 (San Antonio) and they do not carry Chivas 18 yr old.
Yeah, I went out on my lunch break and saw they didn't have any. Additionally, the 12 year old blend was approx $50. You folks are getting it CHEAP!!!
Best buy for San Antonio folks is to wait for Twin Liquor's annual inventory reduction sale. Last year 95% of the store was $1 over cost. I'll definitely post a SD if I see something like that again.
Just checked TL website. Chivas 12 year old is 25 bucks when you buy two.

I went to the San Diego Mission Valley Costco today. Picked up the Kirkland Speyside 20 Year Old for $46 (750ml) and they also had the 15 Year Old Kirkland (Macallan) for $49 (750) and 1.5 litre Glenmorangie 10 Year Old for $54, but they didn't have the Chivas 18 Year Old.
You may as well put the entire Costco Liquor store in this slick deal. Our costco's (Denver, CO metro area) all have liquor stores attached (no membership required) and ALL of the hard liquor is at LEAST 20% cheaper than the cheapest big discount liquor store I have been in. Good Whiskey, "top shelf" vodka, wine, beer, ect. All great deals I haven't been able to replicate anywhere. I stock up every time I go.
We are only allowed 1 Costco in the state with it's own Costco store and the prices are usually about $1 cheaper on everything but the "attached" ones are nearly as good minus the lack of Kirkland liquor. BTW, Kirkland Vodka is generic Grey Goose and tastes very close.
the KS vodka is 1.75 liter.
great price for 18 Chivas if you can find it. Never seen this one in MA. In fact, i've never seen whisky discounted in any of the COSTCO warehouses in MA.
