Can I take wine?

Leaving friday for Tortola and was thinking of taking about four boxes (yes boxes) of wine in a cooler. Got to thinking, is that going to be a problem with customs? In the past we always came into St. Thomas but that has been about 10 years too.

Spirits are usually distilled.

Import regulations by British Virgin Islands customs


imports:

Tobacco:200 cigarettes or 50 cigars or 1/2 lb. tobacco
Alcohol:1 quart of spirits
British Virgin Islander Customs: Regulations, Export-Import Procedures of British Virgin Islands Customs.

I am going to guess that the answer is no.

You might also be over your baggage limit.

So what he is saying is, as long as you have most of it consumed by the time the customs officials show up, you are good....
