This Is How Much a Bottle of Alcohol Costs in Each State

Mark Yocca / Supercall

The price of a bottle of liquor varies widely state by state. If you live in Colorado, for example, you might be used to paying around $20 for a bottle of nice vodka. In New York, that same bottle goes for twice as much. The same sort of price differentiation goes for for cheaper bottles. In an effort to find which states are the cheapest and which are the most expensive, we tracked down the cost of a bottle of Smirnoff and a bottle of Grey Goose in each state. Those brands were chosen because we wanted to show both a high and a low price spirit in the same category, and both brands are widely available in every state.

A note on how prices were determined: We looked for the largest liquor stores in the state, and used chains in states that have them. In control states where the government sets the price of liquor, we used the government prices. The cost may be slightly higher or lower depending on which store you go to, but it will hover around the prices listed below.
