Hello all.

Went to my local Costco today (Located in Fresno, California) and I did a double take. Glenlevit 12 Year Old single malt scotch whiskey was priced at $19.99, apparently due to a $7 manufacturer instant rebate, which goes through November 30th. This means that while liquor price may be different depending on the area, a great majority of Costcos should have it marked down by $7.

Costco Store Locator [costco.com]

You might not need a membership to purchase Alcohol at Costco, depending on local laws or if you can get a Costco Gift Card. See Wiki for details.

You'll find Glenlivet 12 Year normally priced anywhere from $25-$60, depending on your region and sales, or if ordering online, it sits in the middle to higher end of that range when including shipping costs.

Tasting notes and reviews can be found at Master of the Malt [masterofmalt.com].
While this isn't my favorite scotch, as I like them a more smokey, it has a nice light flavor and I'd highly suggest it to those who are new to scotch drinking who might get put off by really smokey scotches. And at $19.99 a bottle, you can't go wrong.


I didn't buy any today, and didn't snap any photos but kissdisap did take a photo! I'll make sure to do so when I go back into town tomorrow soon. I did buy a bottle though not long ago for $26.99, and took my receipt in to have them price adjust my previous purchase (See wiki on Costco Alcohol Price Adjustment Policy), so I got $7 back bounce.

At least around here, that's the cheapest Glenlivet has been in recent memory. Feel free to post prices and Costco locations, and I'll keep a running list in the wiki.

Thanks kissdisap for the price label picture!

Note: Apart from the laws below, you can also shop at Costco without a membership if you somehow acquire a Costco Cash Card from another member [costco.com] or Gift Card Reseller.

Purchasing Alcohol at Costco without a Costco Membership:
Due to leftover regulations and laws from the prohibition era made to combat "Speakeasies", many states prohibit the restriction of sale of alcohol to membership only clubs. As such, in these states membership warehoue outlets like Costco, BJ's, and Sam's Club are required to let anyone from the public purchase alcohol. To take advantage of this, go to the customer service desk and tell them you'll be purchasing Alcohol without a membership. They should provide you with a 1-day Alcohol pass. I've read different accounts on if you can only pay cash or also debit/American Express. If the employee tries to deny you, escalate to management, as most employees are not aware of these laws.

According to Google, a non-exhaustive list of States that have such laws, YMMV:
Arizona
California
Connecticut
Delaware
Hawaii
Indiana
Massachusetts
Michigan
Minnesota
New York
South Carolina
Texas
Vermont

Costco Alcohol Partial Refund Policy:

I made sure to ask the supervisor at the local Costco, as I know Costco has a Price Adjustment policy, but this is alcohol so special rules apply. If you have purchased a bottle of Glenlivet within the last 14 days, to get a partial refund for the difference you must bring in your Original Receipt, and they'll adjust it using that. They won't let you simply pull up the sale using your card like normal, as you cannot return alcohol so they need to adjust it manually using your receipt as proof, as they don't store price adjustments in their database. This is to prevent you from going to multiple Costcos and getting multiple price adjustments for the same purchase.

Reported pricing by location:

Arizona
Paradise Valley $26.99
Phoenix $26.99

California
Fresno - $19.99
San Jose - $19.99 (Thanks kissdisap)

Good to serve to people that you want to leave soon.

Spend a bit more and get something with quality if you like scotch.

Then it's a good deal for you. If you like something and get a good price then that is great.

I tend to serve JW Black as my basic guest whisky and only get out the malts for good friends and interesting guests. I keep all my good stuff in my office away from my guzzler brother-in-law.
