Save $1000 on champagne (or $5 on box wine) at the LCBO’s month-long clearance sale
In a province where most alcohol sales are controlled by a government-run cartel, the words “booze” and “bargain” don’t often seem to go hand-in-hand. Unbeknownst to most Ontarians, however, the LCBO isn’t averse to slashing prices every once in a while. Like now, for instance. The liquor seller is currently holding a big post-holiday blowout that runs until February 2. It includes fairly extensive markdowns on wine, beer and spirits, with options for every type of tippler: a 1995 bottle of Brut Champagne, for instance, discounted from $4,500 to $3,500; a rare Veuve Cliquot rosé slashed to a measly $1000; or four bucks off a jumbo-sized bottle of cinnamon-flavoured Fireball whiskey, if that’s more your speed.
