Sending a bottle overseas

Whatever it is.

Sending a bottle overseas

Postby Bushman » Mon Oct 23, 2017 5:35 am

I would like to mail a bottle of cask strength rum to a friend in Germany. I have never mailed alcohol although I have received a bottle in the past. Any thoughts or things I should be aware of other than packing it really well?

Put it in a wine bottle and seal with a shrink cap?

I have used stainless steel flasks. Can be bought on ebay for cheap if you buy a few. The kind with stainless stopper is pretty indestructible but I think 12oz is the largest. :roll:

I use the shrink cap to secure the lid and heat seal the bottle in a food saver type bag (without pulling a vacuum on it.) Bubble wrap and tape all around will get your “barbecue sauce” there safe and sound.

Good suggestions. I have different size shrink wrap if it's large enough I would think that would work like shrink caps.

I read somewhere.... put the destination address as the return address too.
That way if it is determined that there is a problem with the “barbecue sauce”(per dutchmancreek) it will still get to the desired destination.

after all the other things mentioned might even put in the middle of a bunch of packing peanuts too.
