Tequila and More Spirits and Cocktails Show returns to Toronto for the third time, to kick-start summer at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on May 4-5, 2012. Canada’s largest Tequila Tasting event will offer thousands of visitors Mexico’s top Tequilas, Mezcales, Sotol, Mexican beer. There will also be authentic Latin food, an opportunity to be educated about Mexican culture, and travel destinations.
For two years we have successfully offered the public, and the trade, the biggest and best tequila show in Canada and the northern U.S. Novices were educated about the worlds of tequila and mezcal, people got to try amazing new cocktails, and aficionados got to taste some heavenly spirits. This show gives visitors the opportunity to taste test some of the best tequilas available without having to spend a fortune on buying bottles and gambling on the chance that they won’t like the taste.
According to the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) - one of the largest buyer of alcohol products in the world, in 2011, 100% agave tequila growth rate increased by 37%. According to CRT tequila export to Canada grew 250% from 2009 to 2011.
In 2011, 7 distillers of mezcal brought their products to the Tequila and More show. Three companies found agents to represent them in Ontario. Three new products that participated in the show had been accepted into LCBO stores. Many restaurants and bars in Ontario are carrying new agave spirits, as a result of the show.
This year we introduce Tequila and More Trade show. On May 4, from 2pm to 4pm we invite food and beverage professionals, liquor agents and distributors, restaurant owners, bartenders, sommeliers, food and beverage managers. This will be the perfect place to introduce your products to the professional audience and establish new connections.
