Liquor

Can I bring liquor or beer in check-in baggage?

Yes.

There is a slight chance they will give you grief if the bottle has been opened.

Depending on how much liquor you pack along with your normal stuff, you might want to weigh your bag to make sure you don't go over the maximum weight limit set by your airline.

lets say a handle (1.75L) of rum or something..I should be okay, right? I tend to pack rather light.

Be sure to secure it in a small garbage bag or some other "leak proof" container. Nothing worse than arriving at a destination with your clothing full of liquor....trust me.

Just curious....where are you going that you can't/don't want to buy booze when you get there?

Yes, you can. We bring back wine from Europe almost every trip in our checked baggage. We have never had a bottle break. I just make sure it is well padded.

I bought a bottle of vodka as a gift to a Canadian friend and put it in my rollaboard, which I carried on. I thought I'd cushioned it pretty well -- wrapped in tissue and a skirt (!) and embedded in the middle of the case between several layers of clothing. Figured even if it opened or broke, it wouldn't stain.

Somehow it did get broken, possibly when my burly seatmate heaved it into the overhead. Fortunately, it didn't shatter - just a simple break - so the glass wasn't all over the place. And most of the clothing survived with an airing out to keep me from smelling like an infirmary. HOWEVER, the colors on a paisley print silk scarf ran like FloJo onto a white silk blouse and the effect, while very artistic, just wouldn't work for a business meeting.

I normally buy those bottles of chinese licquor with dead snakes and lizards in that you can get in Hong supermarkets and have had no problems.

And that is carrying a dead animal as well as licquor in your bag...

I have always wondered what they would make of those if you were pulled over.
