    Ship back to where?

    Liquor would most likely have to be shipped by sea.

    Most countries have high tariffs on liquor, so the "where" is important.

    I've seen other posts about shipping to the DR from Canada, but does anyone know about vice versa? I need to ship personal items from Santiago to Toronto. I tried Peralto Bros but they only ship to the DR.

    Check the UPS web site for their offices in SD. You can certainly ship from there to Canada or most anywhere. They should be able to tell you what you can or cannot ship.

    Default Shipping Liquor from the DR

    Hi:

    I tried to send one small bottle in a box with other items via UPS or FedEx and was told by Mail Boxes Etc in Las Terrenas that liquor could not be shipped legally outside of the DR. Dominican Customs will not allow it.

    The UPS website quoted me a price of over $2,000 US per 24x24x24 box of personal items, Santiago to Toronto.

    If anyone has any other ideas, please let me know!

    Get a local distributor to order your liquor. If you're in the US then you should canvass local distributors for what you want. There's a good chance they probably sell the brand you're looking for anyway, for instance in Washington DC, Georgia Ave. Liquors has all of Brugal and Barcelo products for sale as well as Presidente, Brahma, etc.

    ATF takes a dim view of individuals importing by the case and the hassle and cost of customs isn't worth it unless it's a vintage product. Go talk to a liquor distributor.

    Are you sure there's no importer in Miami who stocks exactly what you're trying to ship back? Would save you a lot of hassle....

    Back in Europe I ordered Brugal from Germany www.brugalshop.de and shipped it.
