100% BLUE AGAVE TEQUILA WITH A CANADIAN FLARE!
The story is simple, It all started with an epiphany that hit Troy Bilodeau on January 31st 2010.
A then long time friend Wayne Rezunyk and Troy put their heads together and started testing that day, this was followed with a little research (tasting) okay okay a lot of research, and then they agreed that they maybe on to something. After countless hours of, testing and researching and the duo came up with what is now “De la Tierre” Maple Liqueur Tequila. With a lot of effort, belief, luck and unquenchable desire to make this spirit a true blend of Canadian and Mexican taste at their finest, “De la Tierre” Maple Liqueur Tequila was born!
After extensive “testing and researching” later and partnering with Ralph Berezan who had the same desire and vision, we can now offer a unique Tequila, the only Canadian Maple flavour Reposado currently on the world market. The name De la Tierre is slang in Spanish for “from the Earth or of the Earth” as both the Canadian Maple tree and the Mexican Agave plant are grown on the Earth.
No longer just for our friends and family, you are invited to enjoy this very special blend of spices, 100% pure Canadian maple syrup, mixed with a gold medal-winning 100% Blue agave Reposado Tequila from Mexico. “De la Tierre” Maple Liqueur Tequila will be available for the enjoyment of all.
We hope you enjoy the plethora of tastes that this maple flavour Tequila has to offer!
About our Tequila
We use an awarded Blanco Tequila as our base. This is a Highlands Tequila also know as from ‘Los Altos’. We also use pure maple syrup from the largest producer in the world, Citadelle Co-Operatives in Plessesville, Quebec. While all ingredients are organic and gluten free we do not claim the ‘finished product’ as organic, as it is a lengthy process to receive official ‘organic’ designation.
We purchase our glass from a Mexican manufacturer and only ship in labels and maple. The distillery mixes our formula and ‘Hand labels’ our finished product for outbound shipping.
A little side note, flavouring of Tequila has only been allowed since 2009 and we began in 2010.
We received a 2011 silver medal at San Francisco World Spirits Competition in March of that year. We put the first bottles produced on a shelf in BC at the end of August 2011, only 5 months later – not a bad start for us! We then received a bronze medal for the 2013 Brand of Promise from Tequila Aficionado in Texas followed by a bronze medal for 2014 Spirits of Mexico Competition in San Diego.
Currently selling in British Columbia, Alberta, and Texas! We’re expecting many more areas to come, stay tuned!
