sorry the above alcahol 24% is incorrect this is for international postings this is why you cant send whisky abroad :oops:
the uk allows up to 70% abv to be sent but with restrictions that people should check into to avoid trouble from the post office

I wonder if "destroyed" means, consumed by the workers?
