The Doorly's XO shipment left Florida for BC this a.m. Expected to land March 20 and hopefully be available to special order as a speculative product soon after.

Can't wait...

Very nice work indeed, RRI!

How do I get my hands on a couple of bottles of this once she shows up?

You will be able to order it from the the gov or private stores. We will be working on distribution and sampling once it arrives. Hopefully this will lead to more stores carrying it permanently.

Please feel free to go up to a bartender at your fav pub and ask for it too...word of mouth works great.

Cheers.

Sounds like it won't be more than a few weeks before we can have it in our hands, great work! Just to clarify, will we need to place a special order for a case or will we be able to ask our local gov liquor store to bring it in where we can buy individual bottles (much like we did recently with the Angostura 1824)?

RRI, other than the product name, is there a company name (your distribution company) or product number that we'll need to order this through the gov't stores?

My contact BCLD is known as the "rum lady". If I can get word to her, then I'm sure she'll order some in.

The Stock Keeping Unit- SKU is 267351.

That should be all you need. **About 10 years ago somebody brought in a range of Doorly's rums (not the XO) and it was a flop; however, those names and numbers still lurk in the LDB system (gasp) so be sure to specify the XO.

You should be able order a bottle...better yet asked for a case and that you'll buy 1 bottle and they should shelve the rest!!

Any idea yet on what the gov retail price will be? The LCBO sells it for $30 so I'm hoping it isn't too much more here. I'll be asking the gov store downtown to bring it in as soon as it's available.

We hope to display for between 45-49 at the Gov stores and the privates will be a bit more.

There will always be a discrepency between the provinces based on the mark-up of said province, the tax rate and the freight charges>>BC being the furthest away from the Miami and New Jersey ports where 99% of beverages enter the US.

The BCLDB's mark-up (with taxes to follow) is 167%. Take Goslings Family Reserve for instance: LCBO $55, BCLDB $98--Its nuts, but its the market's reality.
