Been 9 years since we have been so we are rusty. Staying at Lavender Hill Resort. My question is how much booze per person are we allowed to bring back?.

Same as before. US citizens can bring back duty free 6 bottles as long as one of them is a Cruzan product. Even if you bring back more, the little duty payable is often worth it if it's a product you can't easily find at home.

Was curious what are the best liqour deals/savings or what is dramatically cheaper in the USVI's compared to the states?

Check your prices at home before you go. Some things like scotch are expensive even in the VI. Most rum and many whiskeys, gins and vodkas are half price compared to CT prices.

Add Rum & Cognac to that list.......probably any "foreign" brand liquor.

Cruzan Dark Rum in NJ (liter) is $21.95 + 7% sales tax. In STT it was (March 2012) $6.59 at Price Smart (no sales tax).

Avoid taking back wine or port as there's not much of a savings (if any).

Is the duty payable if you bring back more then 6 bottles based on the price of the 7th bottle for example or is it just a flat fee?
