Alcoholic beverages are restricted items but may be shipped as part of the
personal property shipments of the member during the initial phase of
movement to the UK. If alcoholic beverages are included in personal property
shipments they must be declared on the DD Form 1434 and an inventory be
provided listing alcohol, name, Country of origin, year, size of bottle, in
the case of wine whether red/white etc., alcohol % and cost. The goods must
be for the personal use of the entitled member, must not be sold, lent or
gifted. Additionally should a collection change ownership at any point then
the excise duty and tax will become payable.
