Personally, since I live in Tampa, which has a very high amount of latin community, I get bottles of tequila that come straight from Mexico. Going to the produce market (30th and Hillsborough Ave), which is run by 90% mexicans, you can usually ask around and find someone that knows someone whom has a bottle or two extra for sale that was brought back from a visit with relatives or whatever the excuse is for them going back.
You'll never find the bottles in stores, and I've never found ones as good (or strong) in stores. Its kind of like comparing Everclear to good, true moonshine.
Don't know if this is an option for you, but its one I would suggest looking into if it viable in your area. Generally, if the option does arise, figure it will cost alot, but the people I get from usually barter. I've traded 2 mattresses and a few pots and pans for 3 good bottles.
