I've fallen in love with a particular brand of polish vodka which is not available in the US/Canada. Since i travel often between europe and north america, i would like to have this specific polish vodka with me everywhere i go.

Does anyone know how i can proceed (ie: what company to contact?) in arranging a shipment of ~25-50L of polish vodka from poland to either the USA/Canada?

Sounds like it could be difficult as you'd have to deal with the import/ export liquor laws in two lands. And in the US each state has its own Liquor Control Board (LCB) and as such the laws regulating booze vary wildly from state to state. Some liquor laws are downright archaic. Around here you can't even legally import a case of beer from a neighboring state, for crissake...

Maybe start by contacting the exporter in Poland and see what they say...

Yes. Of course. :)

Nowadays many such products have a phone number and/or website right on the label. That's where I'd start.

Merged: Vodka Shipping Poland to U.S.

My friend in the states wanted to me to ship him from Poland 4 bottles of bison grass vodka (Zubrowka). Anyone know if I can take that many to the poczta (and which one) to ship and how much shipping would cost?

There's little to no chance of such bottles making it intact. I'm also not so certain that it's even legal to import without a licence in the US.

Definitely not worth the hassle and expense, and cannot be done by post. See

Zubrowka is available in the states - has a different brand name there, called Zoo I think.

If anyone remembers that Swedish guy Danny who used to work in Sense he is working for Zubrowka over there in the US promoting the brand.

Zoo is basically Zubrowka but not quite (due to Zubrowka containing an ingredient which is illegal in the USA).
Danny never worked at Sense, he was the man at Essence (and his facebook page these days is pretty depressing for anybody who isn't him).
