Additional Information

Alaska does not limit or tax wine shipments into the state. It does, however, permit its communities to restrict sales/shipments of alcohol by way of local election. It is illegal to ship to those communities.

FedEx has approved shipments only to certain zip codes. Click the link under ‘Statutes & Advisories”‘ to see that list. Alaska’s FedEx list is not just “wet” – it is “serviced by” as well. The listing of zip codes are those that are approved for wine shipping under the FedEx program. Other zips (while they may be wet) go to regions where they use contractors rather than FedEx employees (and they don’t allow contractors to handle hazardous, highly insured, or “special handling” shipments), or where they felt that the product was likely to be held outside for extended periods of time in inclement weather, and therefore they won’t carry.

  • Wine sold and shipped directly to a person must be shipped in containers that are conspicuously labeled with the words: “Contains alcohol: Signature of person 21 years of age or older required for delivery.”
