Why Does Good Whisky Cost So Much These Days?

Whisky geeks and spirit super sleuths are unstoppable in their quest for acquiring unique and hard to find spirits. More often than not, they are opting for the convenience of on-line purchase. And if it were anything that’s helping independent online liquor retailers to grow their business, it's sales of premium whisky and Bourbon.

Japanese and Australian whiskies continue to be in sky high demand, with prices soaring, whilst premium Bourbon, Scotch single malts and Irish whiskey are flying off the online virtual shelves, with no signs that this trend slowing down.

One of Australia’s most loved liquor import companies is the SouthTrade International portfolio, which is full of sought after gems and annual releases that are in high demand. Their Bourbons come from the Buffalo Trace distillery, which includes the limited annual release called the  Antique Collection, which has achieved global cult status. Drinks Network has offerings from Stagg Junior, W. L. Weller, E H Taylor Single Barrel, as well as Eagle Rare Bourbon and Sazerac Rye whiskies which all hail from this truly unique and one of Kentucky’s finest distilleries.

In addition to that, Drinks Network is proud to be offering the Kurayoshi Single Malt, one of the up-and-coming whiskies from Japan, as well as,  the deliciously smooth The Dublin Liberties whiskey from Ireland, also part of the diverse SouthTrade portfolio.
