Why don't you consider using 700c? Unless it's a caliper brake reach issue you can make the switch, and never notice the difference. A 4mm reduction in radius opens you up to a much greater selection of rims and tires, with no negative consequences.
If it must be 27" email the folks at Velocity
. They offer 27" alloy rims and used to do special drillings on request (don't know if they still do, though)
