Headed into summer and I'm running out of Spanish Vermouth!!! There, a decent bottle costs less than 5€, here... $20, if you can find any.
So I'm thinking of getting a box like this, styrofoam lined wine box, flying over empty and coming home full. Reviews on Amazon are generally positive- looks like I could even get 2-4 uses out of it.
Does anyone have experience "importing" wine like this?
Notes to answer anticipated questions:
-I'm already checking a bag, so already going to baggage claim.
-I have plenty of luggage allowance, and an average case is 32 lbs, so it won't be overweight.
-I know I'll have to pay duty upon entry- I understand it's about 50¢/liter.
-I have a long layover, so the delay at customs is not a problem.
-I start and end in Madrid, where I stay at my boyfriend's place, so I won't have to haul it around Spain. (And he lives around the corner from one of the city's best wine shops.)
