Where to buy Ciroc?

It seems like none of the BC Liquor store carry them anymore.

Anyone know why?

Where can I go buy some?

My buddy owns a liquor store in Edmonton and told me that Ciroc Vodka sales were so poor in Canada that they discontinued selling them. You may find some liquor stores that sell them as it is there last shipment.

Surprising. That vodka is so smooth.

According to the BC Liquor website, there is one bottle left at their Delta store. It sells for $50.99.

7017 - 120th St
Scottsdale Shopping Centre
Delta, BC V4E 2A9
(604)591-3433

Call them and ask them to hold it to avoid disappointment.

Nope. I believe it's not the alcohol that is the problem but the amount of worm wood contained.

EDIT: I wikied it and found:

Canada
This section needs additional citations for verification. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. (May 2008)

In Canada, liquor laws are established by the various provincial governments. As with any spirit, importation by individuals for personal use is allowed, provided that conditions for the individual's duration outside the country are satisfied. (Importation is a federal matter, and is enforced by the Canada Border Services Agency).

British Columbia, New Brunswick: no established limits on thujone content
Alberta, Nova Scotia, Ontario: 10 mg/kg
Manitoba: 6–8 mg
Quebec: 5 mg/kg
Newfoundland and Labrador: absinthe sold in provincial liquor store outlets

Absinthe is not sold in some provinces, although, in Saskatchewan, an individual is permitted to import one case (usually twelve 750 ml bottles or eight one-litre bottles) of any liquor. Individual provincial liquor boards must approve each product before it may be sold.

Production of spirits in Canada is provincially regulated. Okanagan Spirits in British Columbia released the Taboo brand in 2007: this is possibly the first commercial absinthe crafted in Canada.[87]
So it's the thujone content which is the issue. Luckily we live in a province that doesn't seem to care.

Also it is a smooth vodka. Just try it chilled, on the rocks if you get a chance.

I placed a special order with BC Liquor for a case of 6 to splt btwn friends. $50 each.

You should go to the liquor store and request it. The more people ask for it, you might get a chance to have it back.

It depends. Typically takes anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks. But now that they found a supplier, it should be pretty quick.

BC Liquor called me back and told me they can't even order it through special order.

The distributor that imports the vodka is having a dispute with the France exporter.

Something about proper labelling and shipment delays.

No Ciroc in Canada!
