Default Is it now illegal to ship 151 to US residences?

I've ordered a few bottles of high-proof rum online over the years, and had it delivered via UPS, from several of the larger online liquor stores. Recently I tried to order online, only to have my order canceled, and the vendor sent me an email saying that they couldn't ship 151. A few searches online also showed any bottle of 151 as being unable to ship. Has anyone else experienced this?

Any spirit 70% or greater abv is prohibited from being shipped via air carrier. It may just be a situation where they prefer to be safe than sorry...even if it is being shipped ground.

LMK if you find a place that will ship. Shame this forum is so dead now! Would you happen to know where I can buy Hamilton Overproof - in any way?

Not sure if you are on Facebook, however there is a "Ministry of Rum" page on there where you will see a lot more posts, etc.

I apologize that I haven't been able to do everything that needs to be done on this forum and Facebook is out of control.



In Missouri, I know have distribution, so if you'll send me an email at ed@ministryofrum.com I'll forward it to the sales people at Classique Wine and get an answer of where you can buy Hamilton rums in MO.
