I came across a brand of rum that I really like while abroad. I haven't been able to find any place in Ireland that sells it, and the online stores that carry it don't deliver to Ireland. Can anyone tell me if they know of an importer/distributor that will import to order? I'm happy to buy in bulk if needs be.
Btw - this is what I'm looking to get my hands on.

Please be aware that the importation of spirits into Ireland, without a licence, is illegal. That applies to all carriers - DHL, Parcel Motel etc
As for further importations, you would need to get an agent to declare this on an AAD document or you could do this yourself.

I've always wondered about this, as I don't think the above is correct (open to correction, though). I bought alcohol online last year and had an email exchange with Revenue when it was seized and, ultimately, released without charge.
I asked Revenue: "If I wanted to go about importing alcohol products in future, how do I go about it legally?"
The verbatim response was:
So it seems you can do it legally, once you follow protocol. The Revenue website refers to Alcohol Products Tax, and specifically mentions if you want to import alcohol for personal use...though the rates are ridiculous...a whiskey @ 40% ABV would cost €17 per 70cl bottle to import.
Has anyone ever done this? Or, alternatively, has anybody ever set themselves up as a legit importer of beer/spirits/wine for personal use?
