I have shipped thru the US mail and with UPS when it was legal to auction spirits on Ebay. Having said that - if you go to UPS you'd better not declare you're shipping spirits and its a no-no with the post office.
How'd I do it - be VERY sure its well packed and try to cover up any 'gurgling' if the bottle is shaken that is audible from the outside of the package. A lot of this depends on the bottle configuration and the amount of air gap in the bottle - the less there is the less 'gurgling' should be present.
Fedex accepts liquor from dealers but I'm not sure from individuals.
D&M in San Francisco ships via Fedex and the package is labeled as containing wine or spirits.
