us customs and absinthe
    #4347707 - 06/28/05 07:56 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

if a person were going to return to the us from the eu and they happened to have a bottle of absinthe with them, what would their best course of action be, hypothetically speaking...

Hmmm. Not sure. I carried cuban cigars right through customs in a carry on bag one time and never even thought about it. I'm not even sure what the laws on possesion of absinthe are. I know you can't sell it here but I'm not sure about carrying a bottle in. You might have no problem at all even if they see it.

as far as I can determine, the worst that would happen is that it would be confiscated, but that of course would be failure.

Try mailing it to yourself in the US before you leave EU.

I've thought of that, but what would I label it as?

It's fine. It's only illegal to SELL. Possession is legal.

mail it to yourself, or just carry it.

i have peronally cariied liters of duty free liquor and dozens of cuban cigars in my bad without any more than a nod from customs officials.

appearance has alot to do with that, go through customs clean shaven and dressed nicely and you wont have a problem.

This cute little blonde girl I knew came back from the Czech Republic with some absinthe. Tell the customs people it is alcohol. They are looking for terrorists/weapons first, drugs second, and wormwood in your possibly real absinthe last. GL.

I know AFOAF that put one in their non-carryons. If they catch you with it just say it is alcohol. They usually don't check the baggage claim items IME. Worst case is you play dumb and it gets taken.

...Weapons are meant for destruction,
and thus are avoided by the wise.
Only as a last resort
will a wise person use a deadly weapon.
If peace is her true objective
how can she rejoice in the victory of war?
Those who rejoice in victory
delight in the slaughter of humanity.
Those who resort to violence
will never bring peace to the world...

emphasis on 'possibly'. make sure you know what you are buying - a majority of the absinth i've seen (esp in the us) isn't really absinth, just some anise flavoured liquor that they call absinth.

You can buy absinithe kits off the net. Then just make it here when you are back of the USA. Plus the kits are legal, and come w/ instructions...
