Delivering homemade wine (75cl bottle) from UK to Poland - best option?

Hi everyone.

Last year I made my own red wine (about 12%) and which I want to share a 75cl bottle of it with my friend in Poland when I go to see her in a couple of months time.

Are there any restrictions on using a courier / delivery service when shipping alcohol, or it is flat-out illegal? What is the best solution to do this?

Ideally I would like to deliver my bottle to the guest apartment I will be staying at.

Many/most couriers won't (no duty has been paid on the wine). Why not bring it with you? Still iffy, but cuts out the problem with couriers.

Checked baggage would obviously allow it, but I'm not taking checked baggage on this particular trip ... just cabin baggage. I don't wish to mess about with my current flight booking, especially that it's Ryanair as well. ;P

So, I guess it's not possible then. Ah well, no harm done - it isn't extremely important.

What about age restriction laws on alcohol in Poland?How will they be enforced if someone I think under the age of 18(not 21 in Poland) gets the delivery?
