It is NOT illegal to mail (non drinking) alcohol. It IS illegal to mail any intoxicating alcohol with a tax stamp on it.

I already posted this too.

Acceptable (with restrictions) for domestic mail via surface transportation only. Follow requirements for Packaging Instruction 3A in Appendix C, as applicable.

The packaging details are:

For flashpoint greater than 20 F (-7 C) but not more than 73 F (23 C):

Primary Receptacle
A metal primary receptacle must not exceed 1 quart.
A nonmetal primary receptacle must not exceed 1 pint.
The primary receptacle must have a screw cap (with minimum of
one-and-one-half turns), soldering clips, or other means of secure
closure (friction tops are not acceptable).
Only one primary receptacle is permitted per mailpiece

Cushioning Material and Secondary Packaging
Enough cushioning material must surround the primary receptacle to
prevent breakage and absorb any potential leakage.
The cushioning and primary receptacle must be packed in a securely
sealed secondary packaging..

Outer Packaging
A strong outer packaging that is capable of firmly and securely holding
the primary receptacle, cushioning material, and secondary packaging
is required.

Each mailpiece must be clearly marked on the address side with
"Surface Mail Only," "Consumer Commodity ORM-D," and the
flashpoint of the flammable liquid.
A complete return address and delivery address must be used.
