    I need to get 3 half-gallon bottles of HW 60prf Peppermint Schnapps to Mykonos, Greece, from SC, (or somewhere? lol) USA. Is there a special customs fee or better idea on how to accomplish my mission?

    How about Pisang Ambon? It doesn't have a US distributor and won't be available in the US by the end of the year, or anytime after that it seems.

    You can get Ron Zacapa XO at 89.99 for 1.5L.

    She clearly said that you CAN bring back that much, don't know what you're talking about Robert. Please read peoples comments in full before speaking your mind.

    What I want is Ron Zacapa XO. Drank it almost every night in Columbia and bought some in the duty free store coming back. I'm almost out and want more! Stuff is awesome - may be going back in a few weeks and I'll need to bring back several litters more.

    Not true. I visited Columbia and brought back 3L of different Rums in June and 3L of Irish whisky's when I returned from Dublin last week. Never had a problem. I just told the customs agent what I was bringing back and wasn't even charged any added tax. In fact, the lady at the Duty Free store in Dublin made a comment to not worry about it.

    A few important notes:

    You /can/ bring back more than the 2L limit into the US; but duty free stores will /not/ sell you more than your duty free limit (for what I hope are obvious reasons). If you're shopping abroad (like, buying ridiculously good wine for cheap in the French countryside); you can lug back as much as you like - just declare it. Most likely, the customs official will wave you past; at worst, you'll owe a few bucks in duty.

    Another hard-to-find is Ireland's Green Spot. Be on the lookout if you pass through Dublin or UK airports.

    Anyone know where/how to purchase Smirnoff Black label vodka in 1 litre bottles for the US? Foreign suppliers seem to be very few.
