Cheap Alberta Pure Vodka ??

Some dude came into my work the other day offering us 12 cases of 1.14L Alberta Pure Vodka for $300. It was the first time I'd even heard of the stuff as im a Absolut and Smirnoff drinker, Ive never drank the stuff before so I looked it up online. Apparently it won double gold in a San Fran Vodka competition, so then I checked the BCL website,it retails for $37 a 1.14L bottle, which made this deal way too cheap to be true.. could this stuff be fake? I was thinking of getting a case to try it out but i'm questioning if this stuff is legit..The box & bottles he showed us looked legit but these days anything can. Thoughts?

Purchased some smirnoff at the liqour store in Lansdowne amd the owmer was telling me that Alberta pure vodka was actually good tasting.

It was cheaper than the usual brand smirnoff and absolut, guess worth trying next time.

Brought back from the states by a trucker without paying duty that's why it's so cheap. Was in front of a liquor store one time and the guy was selling 60's for $25 bux.

The best cheap vodka to get in Alberta is Kirkland vodka from Costco. It's cheap and its pretty darn smooth. I've heard of the Alberta Pure vodka and its not bad. 12 cases or bottles for $300? sounds like someone jacked a semi if they are going that cheap.

$300 for a case of 12 cases? or 12 bottles?

If it's 12 bottles, that's a fair price. Works out to be $25 each.

A quick search shows this store in Calgary sell for $35.99 each:
http://csnwine.com/cart-product_28_743096.htm

Probably cost him less to purchase in bulk / leaving him some profit margins
by selling it to you since he knows it will cost $37 at local BC Liquor stores.

It's smuggled in from the states I guarantee it. Truck drives do it all the time. No way he's getting it for under $25 in BC even at wholesale prices.

my brother bought a case of grey goose off some brown guy from surrey.

Was fake.

Word of advice, never rip off someone you don't know that well. Especially when you rip off his friends in the process.

be careful of buying fake booze, I've read articles of the alcohol inside being of the variety not fit for human consumption

they were completely sealed

im not sure if it was fake or what, but i would asume so considering half the bottle froze, tasted like goose still

the guy i bought the bottles off i'm asuming had the trucker duty free hookup or somthing because he was selling 40's of crown, goose, smirnoff, etc. all 1L's for $25-30
