I need to send a bottle of liquor from the USA to India. How should I do it?

A colleague and I bonded over some cups of the local swill the last time I was in Bangalore.

He recently did me a huge favor, and I'd like to send him a bottle of a decently rare local bourbon which is prohibitively expensive over there for somebody in his pay grade.

What's the best way to send it? My primary objective is to avoid a lot of hassle with customs. I don't mind spending $200 to send what would otherwise be a $75 fifth of Eagle Single Barrel.

I suppose I could have a local coworker grab something for him at duty free the next time one of them travels to the Bangalore office, but I'd rather keep this between us.

Any ideas?
