One of the most frustrating things about traveling is figuring out how to bring a great bottle of wine or spirits home.
Liquids can no longer be taken aboard carry-on items in planes, and checked luggage is subject to rough handling. Yet shipping wine or spirits home can be expensive, and many companies won’t take alcohol from private individuals for shipment (of course, declaring the contents as “yeast samples for analysis” usually draws a blank look and no further scrutiny from shippers, should you decide to ship wine or spirits).
Most people are stuck with either trying to find that rare or unique bottle they just discovered when they return home (oftentimes with no luck) or trying to wrap clothing around the bottle and hoping that the airlines don’t break the bottle during the loading and unloading of their baggage. Luckily, there is now an affordable and easy to find option to help bring that special bottle of wine or spirits home: the Wine Skin.
The Wine Skin bottle transport bag lets you pack a bottle safely and securely, and even if the bottle does break, the Wine Skin has a double seal to prevent leaks from ruining your belongings. With the Wine Skin, you simply insert the bottle into the Wine Skin, seal both adhesive strips, and pack it into your luggage.
Thin and easy to pack, the Wine Skin doesn’t take up much space in your suitcase, and it can be found at national retailers such as Walgreens. At approximately $9.99 for a 3-pack of Wine Skins, it’s a no-brainer to pack a few if you are visiting wine country or want to bring your favorite bottle of wine along on a trip.
