You're talking about "raised in the wilds of North Dakota, each hog is raised with love and affection, petted and played with. Fed only the finest peaches and cream, nuts and beer on the last 5 weeks up to it's slaughter. He is then lovingly butchered by 3, 17th generation Lakota brothers ..."
At this point you've got a decent scotch in a jewel encrusted bottle to make it cost a million dollars. The $30 one is a normal bottle is fine. After $30 there's no difference. Same goes for foods. If sad pigs who miss their dead mommy cost $0.79/lb, the higher average ones are $3/lb. When they start building a story and charge $17/lb, guess how much of that price goes to pay the marketing guy's $75,000/year salary.
