shipping everclear across state lines

Just had a question on the legality of this. Short story, my friend lives in a state which prohibits the sale of everclear and I live in a state that sells it. Is it legal for me to "send" him a bottle or two either by usps or fedex? Thanks for your replies.

I don't know why they would check your package from state to state, so it should be no problem since you are sending it as a gift.

The law prohibits sales, not gifts.

Washington is the most screwed up state when it comes to liquor. I was there visiting and wanted to go to the liquor store after dinner on a friday and I find that they are all closed. They have nothing open in the evening, it makes no sense.

Make sure it's well packed (so it won't break) and ship it USPS. Pay with cash, not a credit card.

Yes it's technically illegal but what are they going to do? They can't do anything to the recipient or else people would ship everclear to their enemies.

What's that state where 1) the state has a monopoly on liquor sales and 2) it is illegal for example to drive from another state with a bottle of fine wine that is not sold in that state?

Pack it well and ship it via priority mail. USPS needs a court order to open priority mail packages so have at it!

Ahh...thank you! No wonder I have never heard of it...illegal here in Hawaii. That's sort of surprising since liquor, beer and wine are sold in grocery stores, drug stores, etc. until 11PM or so 7 days a week. I thought Ohio very strange when I lived there years ago what with liquor being sold only in state liquor locations and you had to choose what you wanted by looking a a display behind locked glass cabinets and write down the number of the specific bottle and then pay the cashier who then brought the bottle out. Very few locations and short hours.

Ohio's changed quite a bit since then. 40 proof can be had at your local grocery store and liquor stores have popped up everywhere that will sell you anything you want on open shelves late at night.

theres 2 versions of everclear 151 proof and 190 proof

the 190 is 95% alchohol, about as close to moonshine as you can legally get, probably not legal in many states for that reason

it's truly a terrible drink, many people will puke from 1 shot, it literally is just strait burning going down, while you can take it without a chaser, i wouldn't suggest it as even with a chaser it's very rough

on a good note, 1-2 shots will have you feeling quite good

one party my friend made wop(fruit punch+fruit+alcohol) except with the 190..........lots of puking at that party, lots of passing out..........even i was having trouble eating the fruit because it was so strong :P

sadly, my party days were many years ago when i lived in wisconsin...........i KNOW wisconsin sells the 190 proof

as far as NH, i don't know, these days i'm happy with a little jack , everything i'm reading says it's legal in NH........but no real answer on if they have the 190 or not

EDIT, just called a liquor store in rochester......they said they no longer carry it

dunno if others do, but atleast 1 store doesn't carry even the 151 proof

According to Wikipedia:
190-proof

It is illegal to sell the 190-proof variety in some states of the United States, namely California, Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. Everclear 190 is legally sold in some military stores within the continental United States.

I guess we are out of luck up here.

My dads wife uses Everclear when she makes homemade Khalua - she does a 50\50 mix with water then uses it in the recipe.

Her dentist would get her some when he went to Nevada and she lived in Ca.

lol try it out, it's really cheap, that 14$ price tag is about what it goes for...........i think it was 20 at liquor stores a while back, but it will mess you up guaranteed

just trust me on the chaser part.........use one, many will puke from 1 shot........and even if you don't puke, it's just not pleasant at all ...............you'll have to let me know how you like it :P

I have fond memories with the 190 proof didn't realize it was illegal here, but that explains why I haven't seen it. It smells like rubbing alcohol when you open the bottle. I smuggled a couple of bottles when I came home from the military, but that was years ago.

Just my 2 cents here...

Very bad idea to send anything illegal via US Mail.

Federal crime...

Oh yeah, and here you are on a public forum, getting advice to commit said crime... Yikes?

Good luck.

Another $16 or so for FedEx ground shipping..may not be worth it, as I was going to simply use it as a novelty around the holidays coming up. Not real "Merry" of me to get everyone puking though.
