Whiskey to England...Advice, please...

I'm headed for England in April and a friend there has asked me to bring him 2 pints of Jack Daniles...I didn't really want to haul it around but the post office told me I cannot mail it. I really wanted to stow it in my checked bag but a friend of mine told me that once she had spirits stolen from her checked bag. Any suggestions from those who know?

Jack Daniels can be found in the UK so it isn't all that exotic (though it is expensive)

If you still want to do this, my suggestion is to wait until after you check in for your flight and clear security. Then buy the JD in duty free. You can take liquids onn board that are purchased airside (after security)

BUT not if you have a connecting flight from a UK airport as it will be confiscated.

Oh - yes that is important.

Not if you are flying on to another destination after your transatlantic flight. But if you are on the ground from then on - then buy it from Stateside duty free.
