Havana, Cuba was an active smuggling port, with a long history of shipping. European distillers shipped large amounts of their products to Havana, knowing it would likely be smuggled into the United States. Liquor wholesalers provided a wide variety of liquors to smugglers and facilitated the production of forged customs documents that allowed smuggling ships to depart with illegal cargoes of liquor. Smuggling networks landed these cargoes on southern beaches, either to supply local liquor markets or to transport to markets via road or rail to markets in midwestern or northeastern cities.
