Default shipping alcohol?

My husband and I will be visiting the Eastern caribbean over Thanksgiving week. Friends and family are asking us to purchase alcohol for them...has anyone shipped alcohol from the islands to the U.S or do you know if that is even a possibility? We are wondering how we are going to bring the bottles back home safely.

We bought a bunch of rum at the Appleton Estate Rum Factory in Jamaica (it would have been cheaper on the ship!) and we simply carried it with us on board. There were only about 6 bottles though. Most places will ship it for you and will provide sturdy shipping boxes. I would feel safe having them ship it to my house although you'll pay a little more for shipping and possibly duties.
