Why Is It So Hard to Import Alcohol?
Canada has complicated and archaic liquor laws. The whole industry is highly regulated, highly taxed, and highly vexing. Sometimes even importing wine province-to-province can be a headache, never mind trying to bring in a bottle of that amazing biodynamic Anjou you discovered on vacation. But if you’re serious, there’s always a way. The key is importing in quantities big enough to make it worthwhile, and using trustworthy people. Try talking to the sommelier at your favourite restaurant for some tips — or even some freelance help.
