Bringing alcohol in your suitcase

I wanted to know if anyone has any experience with bringing a large bottle of alcohol in each suitcase.. Do they tend to open and check the luggage? How much are you legally allowed to bring? We have a 9:30 am flight out of NY so I'm not sure if duty free is open.

Does anyone know just how expensive a bottle of Absolut or Smirnoff is in Provo?

We do like out bloody mary's and seas breezes!!!

I just posted the same info for the Dewars question, so here you go:

You can bring 1.136 liter of wine or liquor per person with no restrictions. You can see prices for The Wine Cellar, which is located on Leeward Highway at:

Close, but not quite threelittle : )

1.136 liter is actually one British Imperial quart. A US quart is .946 liters.

I am just happy that I can bring three bottles of the really good wine for two people when we visit.

Thanks for the correction Joebwan :) I read the website wrong! It said UK not US! In any event, I'm with you, as long as we can bring in some of the good stuff!

Gotta love the Brits. More is better!

lazydaysNyc, I am guessing you meant checked bags, since you would never make it through security with it in your carry on.

If it is in your checked bags, I am sure you can get away many times with breaking the law. Just depends on if you are a person that likes to break the law and are willing to take the risk...

Alchohol is a lot cheaper down here than it is in Canada. I'm thinking that the States is probably cheaper than Canada.

What I can tell you is a 40oz bottle of Bacardi is less than $25.00 and I would think that a bottle of Absolout would be about the same.

Don't think I would risk getting my clothes all ruined if a bottle broke for that much.

A bottle of Absolut was $20 Cdn at the Toronto Duty Free shop, same one at Leeward IGA was $28 US.
