I often pack bottles in my checked luggage many times with no problem. Just put the bottles where they will be in the center of your suitcase when you close it and pack plenty of padding (clothing works well) around and between them so that they can't shift in transit.
Another optin is to pack them in the middle of your laundry bag, but the principle of padding on all sides and inability to shift still applies.
