Cold weather and shipping in General Absinthe Discussion Posted December 7, 2013 · Report reply I've gotten some very cold deliveries and everything was fine. If I were to ship booze, I would wrap it well with bubble wrap or lots of newspaper. Not only will it keep it from breaking but will insulate and slow the temperature changes. That's why some folks have cellars, to stabilize/minimize temp changes. Just one drunks opinion. Cheers!
