    Re: Trading bottles

    I'm not a lawyer (nor do I play on on TV), but I agree there may be legal issues with a forum openly trading spirits. The man always wants taxes on any spirits transaction and trading across state lines, especially to those with laws prohibiting such transportation, would be an issue. And then having forum posts that document said transactions......well, you get the point.

    Re: Trading bottles

    I have a friend in Canada that I am wanting to send a bottle to. Her selection is very limited. I was planning on asking the post office first, but since this thread was opened it may be better to ask it here and not waste the trip. Should I expect the ATF knocking on my door?

    It is illegal to ship alcohol via US Post. It would be a Federal Crime.

    Guess what I'm doing this morning?
    Shipping some of KY's finest to another SB.com member.
    Communicate thru PM and tell the postal person it's just antique Coca-Cola bottles or home made maple syrup.

    I hope this helps.

    Without discussing trading and shipping arrangements in an open forum, it would be nice to have a "What X Bottle do you have that that you wish were a Y Bottle (Spring of 2010)" thread.

    Yep! It sure would be.
    But you have to remember, all this alcohol trading gets the attention of the Man.
    He thinks we are trying to evade paying taxes on spirits, so we gotta be cool and low key.
