Shipping

Postby scotch4ever » Fri Oct 13, 2006 6:00 am

I need to ask the not so obvious. Ship what? :P Scotch from stores around the USA? Scotch from stores in the UK and Europe?

If you are looking in the USA i would either try http://www.sameswine.com or http://www.binnys.com both stores are located in Illinois. They ship to approx 44 states if I recall.

You can ship product in from the UK, however, you need to get a special permit from the ATTB (formerly the ATF). It would be cheaper and easier in most cases to buy a plane ticket to the UK and buy your booze and fly home. You can get a special case made to hold your booze and place it into checked baggage.


Happy hunting

I was having a tough time finding the balvenie for a non-heart stopping price.

Another place to try is K&L Wine Merchants in San Francisco, Ca. They don't have nearly the selection of Binny's but they do have some nice deals from time to time.


Cheers!

My "local" shop is Wine and Liquor Depot in Van Nuys, CA. Fabulous selection. :shock:

I'll second Binny's - have bought from them before and received great prices and the bottles were packaged very well. Brett (their scotch guy) is also helpful and responds to questions quickly.
