How I legally transport an open bottle cognac from Toronto to Boston?

I have a bottle of cognac that my grandfather gave me when I was 5, to be consumed at my graduation. As you can imagine, this bottle has great sentimental value.
My family and I had some of it when I got my BA and we would like to consume the rest when I get my PhD this June. The problem is that my PhD convocation will be in Boston. The bottle is on Toronto. I would like to do this legally to avoid risk of having the bottle confiscated.
Travel between Toronto and Boston will be by plane. Is there some sort of special permit I can get? Some other procedure I can follow. This requires both the cross-border transport of the alcohol, as well as having an open container in a car in both Ontario and Massachusetts.
