I plan on taking a road trip very soon to a destination that is six hours away from my home. At the very end of my short 4 day weekend vacation, I'll be stopping by a winery and distillery to pick up some wine, gin, and possibly other spirits to take home.
What precautions should I take to protect the integrity of the wines and spirits while in transport? Should I bring a special type of container or box to prevent the wine from being "cooked" in the heat of the sunlight as I'm driving?
BTW, I'll be blasting the air conditioner during the entire drive back down to my home. Is it sufficient to simply keep the liquor under the front seat and out of direct sunlight? I'm assuming that keeping the liquor in the trunk is a no-no.
Thanks in advance for any insight.
