Whiskey Decanters

Recommended Posts

We have a collection of 20 Royal Doulton Birds of Prey whiskey decanters which are full of Whyte & Mackay scotch whiskey , can we take these and is there a duty on the whiskey content . If it’s a big problem we would probably sell them now . Before anyone says it we are not whiskey drinkers .

Yes you can take them and yes there would be duty payable on the whisky content.  Personally, if you're not attached to them, I would sell them now.

You can bring 2.25 litres in per person (over 18)
But it has to travel with you and you would have to meet the requirement of each countries airports you travel through.
All unaccompanied alcohol is subject to duty which is not cheap. You should be able to work out the cost though to help you decide.
Also bear in mind that a container can get to 50 degrees -it might not bode well for some things!

Did you win them in a raffle?

Just curious?

I've just googled these as never heard of them  - they look fabulous !

I would empty the whisky and keep the Royal Doulton !!!!!
