Wisconsin accepts anything with alcohol and we are very close to New Jersey. Ship it to my home and I will hold it until the owner can pick it up. Wink, wink.

I don't think one bottle is going to start a revolution....

Let me guess Pappy Van Winkle.

eYe for a new whiskey section....

It would be a great place for fellow gun enthusiasts (when they've had a few) to ponder over screws, loose screws, screws lost and missing.

I was in a group being selected for a jury trial concerning a shipment of five bottles "collector grade" wine. The purchaser said what he received was not what he ordered and paid for. The seller said that what he shipped was correct, and the bottles must have been intercepted somewhere and either substituted or relabeled or whatever. I don't remember if the carrier was FedEx or UPS.

The lawsuit was for $25,000.00, but I thought that wasting a jury trial and three days on this matter was uncalled for, and said so, and I was not picked for the jury panel.

What I did take from this was that entrusting such a valuable, perishable, and irreplaceable item to the common carriers was a risky proposition. You probably should use a bonded carrier with photos, documentation, certification, and plenty of insurance.

Either that or just open the bottle and pass it around to your fellow organization members and give the buyer his money back. Would save you a lot of hassle.

Looking at Total Wines site they will ship to New Jersey so I'm betting that shipping alcohol into the state is okay. They ship using Fedex.

FedEx/UPS...how dreadfully boring. Get some Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Mel Street and Gary Stewart 8-tracks and run it out there Gator McClusky style. Have HojOe run blocker for ya.

Given half a chance, UPS will break it, sure as hell.

I don't know if it's $500 or $5000, but I'd double box it into a large box with plenty of cushioning. Most boxes I receive from UPS look to have fallen off of their conveyor system multiple times.

Only requirement I know of is that an adult - 21+ - has to sign for it. I got a note at home while I was at work, and they told me they could not leave it. So I had them deliver it to work, and told receiving to be on the look out and NOT to open it. grin

This bottle is from a distillery called Knob Creek in Kentucky, if that means anything to anyone. Jerseyboy paid $4000 for it; his taste buds must be better educated than mine.

Thanks for the advice, guys. I've passed it on to the poor soul tasked with "gettin' 'er done".

The ducks, geese, and brant at Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve (which gets the proceeds) also thank you, and hope not to meet you over decoys any time soon....they're afraid you might know EXACTLY what to do in THAT situation!

Note NJ law looks at hard liqour and wine differently.
