But the duty free limits seem really low. Up to 1.14 liters of liquor, 1.5 liters of wine, or 8.5 liters of beer. I'm thinking maybe a case of Pliny the Elder, where they have that oddball 510 ml bottle, so that would be 6.12 liters.

Product | Metric | Imperial | Estimates |
---|---|---|---|

Wine | Up to1.5 litres of wine | Up to 53 fluid ounces | Two 750 ml bottles of wine |

Alcoholic beverages | Up to 1.14 litres | Up to 40 fluid ounces | One large standard bottle of liquor |

Beer or ale | Up to 8.5 litres | Up to 287 fluid ounces | Approximately 24 cans or bottles (355 ml each) of beer or ale. |

Anyone done this? What I was hoping for was maybe a bottle of Scotch plus the case of beer (which I'd pay duties), but apparently if any category goes over, the entire amount is subject to provincial duties/fees. And for liquor it's really, really high (maybe 60% of retail where I'd need a receipt). Or if any categories are mixed and matched. And it's near impossible to find what that would be if I'm a visitor. All I can find is a resident set of duties. I guess I could make it a lot easier by just staying under the duty free limit.
