On Monday, September 13th, BSG HandCraft will effect price changes to our product portfolio. We wanted to inform our business partners of these adjustments in advance; allowing you to prepare for the changes.
Traditionally, we have released annual price changes in the spring. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began in early 2020, we chose to hold HandCraft pricing unchanged through spiking international freight costs, higher cost of raw materials, and price increases by suppliers. We absorbed those costs to help temper the financial uncertainties that have impacted our customers over the past 18 months.
As one of our valued business partners, you are well aware that operating expenses rise over time. These pricing adjustments are necessary to maintain the same quality of products and industry-leading service that our partners are accustomed to.
As a part of BSG HandCraft’s ongoing commitment to supporting the industry through the most transparent pricing possible, we will be regularly auditing our pricing on a semi-annual basis going forward.
When we are able to find a profit margin that allows it, we are committed to passing those savings on to you, our retail partners.
To help you navigate the changes to our portfolio pricing, we wanted to highlight a few of the products that will have new wholesale prices as of Sept. 13, 2021.
Grainfather G30 Price Decrease
We're dropping the price for the first time ever on the multi-award-winning Grainfather G30 (formerly The Grainfather Connect).
As a part of this wholesale price reduction, the G30 MAP price will also be reduced to $899, effective Sept. 13. This price change is applicable to both 110v and 220v versions of the G30.

The Still Spirits product line has been adjusted to have more consistent pricing. The Top Shelf Essences and Classic Flavorings products will have flat prices across their respective ranges.
→ Still Spirits Consumables
Wine kits from RJS Craft Winemaking will have various price adjustments across all brand series.
Most RJS kits will increase by an average of 3 – 5%, but some will be decreasing by as much as 11%, including the En Primeur Australian Shiraz, which is a six-time WineMaker Competition medal-winning kit.

An Expanded Portfolio to Fit Your Needs
It is our pleasure and privilege to provide you with the best ingredients and products from around the world, and we are thrilled to be bringing 90+ products to the BSG HandCraft portfolio in the coming months, including some exciting new innovations from Grainfather.
Many products will be leaving our portfolio, such as non oxygen-absorbing crowns, Rainbow soda extracts, and all 1 lb. base grains (don't worry, specialty grains will still be available in 1 lb. packs).
