For Japan, there is Vpost and Tenso.

You will should check with the forwarder directly before trying to export/import alcohol - Vpost shipping restrictions doesn't seem to indicate any (ex Japan, im Singapore; unless it is considered flammable...) Let us know how much taxes you had to pay if you do.
I will check on tenso, because Vpost Jpn rates not competitive. Taxes I know what kind and how much.

I have shipped about 10 bottles of Whisky from Japan. If declaration is >$400; you pay 7% GST.

Alcohol tax is about $23 per bottle (for a 700ml 40% alc)
