15 of The Most Expensive Well-Liquior Shots from Around the World

The terms “well-liquor, well-drinks, and well-shot” refer to the basic or lower-tier alcoholic beverages readily available at most bars and as the default options for mixed drinks and cocktails. “Well liquor” is usually less expensive than premium or top-shelf options and is the base for various cocktails. They might include standard brands of vodka, gin, rum, tequila, and whiskey that are used as the starting point for mixing a variety of beverages.

“When looking for well alcohol shots in Scotland, be prepared to pay around  £1- £3 or around $1.26-$3.78 for a shot of well alcohol.

“A typical well shot in Arizona’s Tempe/Scottsdale areas will run about $4. One bartender said, “Well alcohol is so cheap, and since there are a lot of college students in these areas, we can sell cheap shots and still make a profit of almost 200%-300% on each bottle.”

“If you’re looking for a quick way to warm up while in Norway, a well shot will cost around $13.70/€10.10. The steep price of a shot is due to other alcohols being more widely consumed. Drinks like mead and Akevitt are the most popular celebratory drinks and run a bit cheaper, and there’s more liquid by volume in the glass.”

“While drinking in Australia, you’ll pay $9 for a well shot. The most popular alcoholic drink in Australia is red wine, but if you’re looking for cheap shots, you really won’t find them. Shots are a hard sell; therefore, they’re priced higher than most other alcoholic beverages by volume.”
