Spirits shipping to USA

Recommended Posts

Not exactly sure when OR WHY all this went down, but it looks like sometime over the past month that big European spirits companies such as Master of Malt and The Whiskey Exchange have all but stopped shipping to the USA. MOM has completely halted all shipping to the states and TWE, as of now, only ships to a handful of states... sad day indeed:(

...Does anyone here have any insight as to why this has occurred? These companies are staying mum on the whole thing...

perhaps cuba's new leader has placed an embargo on any company that deals with the states and so they have all decided better not risk it?

Does Berry Brothers ship whiskey to USA?

Have no idea, but I'm still trying to figure out what happened... Was it some new law? I doubt it. My guess is that it's some entanglement with industry big shots(which sucks even more). I've seen people on the net saying that it has something to do with Anheuser-Busch, which wouldn't surprise me in the least.

If it is AB-InBev, all the more reason to never buy any of their products (including the micro-breweries they've been buying up).

They are the ones that bought Master of Malt. I have no idea why TWE would suddenly restrict shipments.

Order something from Berry Brothers and see what happens.

^ Probably correct though outrageous.  Cost of shipping is the reason I've never ordered anything from TWE or MOM.

The trick is you need to buy a case (6 bottles). It smooths put the shipping cost per bottle (a little).

100% this. Whenever I used them 6 bottles appeared to be the sweet spot to avoid paying duty.

Guinea pig style??? No thanks, I'll just pick up what I need from from the ole package store, even if they do jack up their prices. Here's what it says on Berry Bros site with regard to shipping to USA, "Furthermore, we do not export Spirits to the USA" ...So I guess they only export wines to the states.

No reason to be guinea pig if BBR says they do not ship spirits to the US.
