Subsequently Angostura Canada acquired the rights and the liqueur continued to being produced in the same location until mid 2000 when Angostura transferred most of its production abroad and the Winnipeg plant closed down.
Currently the Original Canadian XO Maple Liqueur is produced by Canadian Maple, an international company with headquarters in Canada and production facilities in Europe. Although this distinctly Canadian drink was for many years available only within the North American continent, thanks to the new ownership this delicates is now being introduced to the European market. The liqueur is still brewed in a strict adherence to the original formula utilizing the same Canadian components from the original suppliers, maintaining the same high quality and uniqueness which the first XO Maple Liqueur offered in North America.
