Not sure how they can even get away with this? De La Tierre Maple Liquor Tequila is apparently 100% agave bottled in Mexico and if I recall was NOM 1107. It makes you wonder what producers can get away with in terms of flavouring and still call it tequila.

As long as it doesn't have a hockey jersey on the label...

Tromba is a tequila with a Canadian influence already. ;-)

We were at a recently opened tequila bar/resto here in Edmonton which has strong ties to Tromba. Marco Cedano was there for a tasting and I got to talk to him. A very nice guy.

 

For anyone who happens to be in Edmonton this place probably has the best selection of tequilas in town and is very nicely appointed:

My alternate go to place for tequila in town is:

Alberta has different liquor laws and can probably get access to tequilas here in Ontario we can only dream about...

Here is what's currently available for tequila in Alberta:

Can't say how it compares to Ontario as my only experience with that province is changing flights at YYZ.

I will never complain about the selection in these parts of Mexico. Some pretty decent tequilas - and some scary looking bulk mixto-bottled in the USA stuff...

 

Curious about these T1 Tequila Uno Single Barrel Repo and Anejo offerings. Legit or a typo error?

T1 is readily available in many local stores. I just checked and unfortunately the single barrel anejo is not currently available anywhere in the province. The single barrel reposado is selling for $99CAD + tax at a nearby store. They had 4 in stock.
