one litre of liquor

A call to the village liquor store reveals that they do no carry our beverage of choice. :-(

Truth be told, my wife and I would probably go through a bit more than 2 liters in the week we will be there - I mean, we are on vacation and all. So we need to bring in 2 liters for sure. Liquor of course comes in those pesky 750 ml bottles.

Wondering if anyone would happen to know if liquor needs to be in it's original bottle at customs (we are going through Cayman Brac) or of we can fill (2) 1 litre plastic containers up to the top and transport it that way?

Thanks for any tips or suggestions, "don't drink on vacation" tips will be politely ignored. ;-)

Did you call the duty free store at the last airport out of the US? They will sell one little bottles.

I would think it best to have in original packaging.

We take 3.5L of our favorite beverage. We put it in tonic water bottles and wrap them I plastic. We also buy a 1.75L at duty free. So yes repacking is not a problem at least for us. Its your vacation so have fun. May sound like a lot but we always seem to make friends we share with ymmv

Does your brand come in those little 50 ml single drink bottles, like the ones that they sell on airplanes? You could buy 10 of those to make up the difference. Each of you could put 5 of them in your 1 quart zip-lock carry-on bag that you take through security.

I didn't realize that you could pay duty to bring more in. That pretty much solves the problem I think.

Thanks for all the replies!!!

Just to follow up - we told customs about our 3.2 litres of scotch, they asked if we had any cigarettes and we said no, and they told us to go on through - end of story.

Sometimes the paperwork for duty isn't worth it. It's not something that anyone should rely on, of course, but it is a possibility.
