Eelbrook, are you mailing from the Uk to the States or within the UK? Most retailers either have special boxes or as per LFW, who make boxes that work very well.

I keep the boxes I receive posted whisky in, so I can use it again to send out stuff. Otherwise, Any good strong box will do with pleanty of packing.

And a big warning sign saying FRAGILE/GLASS should also hopefully help.

Hi Eelbrook,
DHL is owned by Deutsche Post and here in Germany they have purpose made boxes for bottles.

These are ideal for single bottles and are just the right size for either foam chips or bubble wrap above and below the bottle, plus room for the bottle to be wrapped in bubble wrap.

For more than one bottle I use larger boxes with plenty of bubble wrap and / or chips.
