Shipping alcohol requires the right approach. There are at least a few factors to consider when planning to ship wine, vodka, beer or whiskey by courier. Check out how to ship alcohol, taking care of the safety of the shipment itself, but also customs procedures and documentation.
Want to send alcohol as a gift? Have you been asked to ship a local specialty? Sending a single bottle of alcohol should not be a problem, as long as you take all precautions.
Packing wine or other alcoholic beverage for shipment in the right way is the basis for their safe transportation by courier. A glass bottle is fragile and not very durable, and flooding other shipments in transit can cost dearly, not to mention the disappointment of the recipient, who instead of the expected beverage will receive a shattered glass.
. To avoid an unpleasant situation, pack a bottle of wine or other alcohol using all possible protection - the materials used must well absorb shocks and not let the liquid through. A good tip when packing alcohol for shipment is to wrap it in a towel first. If - unluckily - the bottle breaks, a lot of liquid will soak into it. The next step is to place the liquor in a plastic bag or pouch and seal them tightly. Now it is the turn for cushioning - bubble wrap is never enough! Tape the protected goods and put them in a cardboard box. Fill it with extra foil or fillers to prevent the bottle from moving during the journey.
Preparing alcohol for shipping by courier on your own, however, is not an easy undertaking, let alone an effective one...
Unquestionably the best protections for bottles of spirits are certified packaging, dedicated to shipping alcohol.
