Thanks for the offer, but its too much liquid for carryon. I may have to give my dad a placeholder gift and pick it up when I'm in Europe next time (100% July, but maybe earlier). I'll need to coordinate with some Euro FGers for that..... and some other Euro only stuff I want that doesn't ship here....How soon do you need it? As long as its compatible with the little-plastic-bag-for-liquids-rule and will survive a USPS trip from Florida, I may be able to help at the end of the month.
Don't rely on just bubble wrap to keep your bottles safe, though. Wrap each in a t-shirt at least. Last time I flew, one of them broke in my suitcase.Yeah, best option is to fly alcohol in checked luggage if you really want it and even then, be careful you don't exceed 5L or transport more than 70% ABV. 5L seems quite excessive after reading the limits. "This is my therapy liquor."
Yup. A shirt around the bottle plus plastic bag around the shirt is ideal in my experience, and of course any glass bottles packaged this way still shouldn’t touch anything sturdy such as metal.Don't rely on just bubble wrap to keep your bottles safe, though. Wrap each in a t-shirt at least.
When you are done with that, would you explain to my neighbors that their damned roosters crowing at 4 am is not cool. People are trying to sleep.Which might force them to take care of it, or get the attention of the police. I would not do it though. More realistically, I would go ring their doorbell and complain.
