I did bubble wrap and then inside a large (freezer) ziploc bag just in case. And packed in the middle with clothes all around in a hard sided suitcase.

Honestly, I would avoid it altogether. The last thing you want is dripping wet clothes smelling of alcohol...

We have used Wine Diapers with great success. They are cheap, reusable and seem very secure. also the extra large ziplock bags have been used.

We used one rolling carry on size bag for the drinks and we checked it on the flight. We brought juice, vodka and scotch. My husband has able to find the vodka and scotch in plastic bottles. I think we may have also put them in zip locks but can't remember now.

We always take alcohol on trips with us. We go on at least 6 vacations a year. Never have had any breakage or leaks. The only problems I've ever had are with toiletries!

Just wrap in a couple of grocery bags (mine won't fit in Ziplocs, but that would be better) and then in sweatshirts or other clothes.
Having twins warrants many vacations!

We order plastic bottles of flavored rum from our local liquor store. They don't charge us extra! Then we just wrap in towels in one bag and pick that bag up at MCO and get on the bus with that to head to the port.
