Help us measure how liquor prices have changed

On June 1, liquor sales entered the private sector for the first time since Prohibition in Washington state. Based on user-reported shelf prices at private liquor stores, we've computed the median total price — with tax — for each of the top-selling liquors, and compared that price with the state liquor stores' price to find the difference. Help us refine our comparisons by recording the prices you're seeing (or paying) for the items below.

Top-selling brand names State prices*
Median after privatization** Price difference Number of responses

*Total retail price, incl. taxes

**Based on shelf prices reported by users, with taxes added
