Costco verges on being a cult. But when your top-quality products are sold at prices that good, you won’t hear us complaining—especially when it comes to Costco’s in-house brand, Kirkland. The Kirkland Signature liquor line inspires extreme loyalty, even by Costco standards, with bottles bigger than your head selling for rock-bottom prices. Most of the juice comes from reputable (unnamed) distributors like Beam Suntory, so you should totally give Kirkland a chance the next time you’re getting ready for a party (or stocking up on booze for doomsday).
Don’t worry if you don’t have a Costco membership. At least a dozen states—Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Texas, Vermont—have laws that require membership-only stores to sell alcohol to the general public, and store policies elsewhere vary.
