UK single malt scotch versus the rules (transiting Toronto to the US)

Jump to last reply

A few years ago, my mother-in-law bought Yukon Jack at the duty-free in Canada, only to have it confiscated in Amsterdam on their way back to the UK.

My English (permanent US resident) husband and I (US citizen) are making a rare trip to the UK to see his family and he'd love to get single malt scotch at the duty-free when we leave England, but we have a layover in Toronto. He's very much concerned that the same thing will happen to him.

Is there a way to buy his scotch in England and get it through to the US without having it confiscated?

I did post in Air Travel, but I'm hoping other European travelers may have experienced this issue and have relevant experience to share.

Thanks!
