Irish whisky prices gone crazy?

Postby Vest » Thu Jan 26, 2012 2:26 am

The price of Redbreast 12:
Sept. 2010: 23,79 pounds ex. vat on TWE.
The price right now is 33,29 pounds ex. vat.

That's a FORTY percent increase in only 17 months. Why???

It was more shocking than that, the price increase was announced and set for a certain date. Then on that day the new price came into effect. That price hike literally happened overnight.
