According to this piece over at WI
, Royal Mile Whiskies reports:
"The Civil Aviation Authority is stopping the transport of high alcohol
products in non-freight aeroplanes, as they are now classing these
liquids as ‘dangerous goods’.
"We are currently evaluating alternative solutions, but this is a complex
issue and will take some time. As such Royal Mile Whiskies are to suspend
shipping to North America as of the 8th January 2013 until further notice."
I read elsewhere that RMW was using Royal Mail for its shipments and
that is where they ran into trouble. Shipments using couriers such as
FedEx, DHL, et al may
not be affected but if you go to the MoMalt site
and check the Delivery page, they are not currently shipping to USA.
