    You can get away with it if you are not stopped or do not have your baggage opened. Is it worth saving $11 per litre customs duty is probably a better question?

    i would try first your home (departure) airport for duty free liquor.
    if they do not have what you need, then you at least have the optio of duty free at QB airport.

    absolutely bubblewrap

    also too can transfer the liquor into 20 oz or litre sized water bottles. (plastic)

    tighten the cap, cushion well!

    can be sketchy.
    other times lots of selection.

    they had kahlua and baileys, so i was happy..........but we have not bought anything in there in a year.

    Thanks.

    Im wondering if im better off testing my luck at the duty free or using the bubble wrap approach. I like top shelf for the most part and i would hate to either be stuck with a horrible selection or pay double the amount at a store in aruba.
