‘Our walls are built of booze!’ N.Y. couple find hidden trove of prohibition-era whiskey in their home


Nick Drummond and Patrick Bakker had been living in their bungalow in Ames, about 300 kilometres from New York City, for over a year. During that time, locals shared stories that the house, built in 1915, had previously belonged to a prohibition-era bootlegger. The couple dismissed the stories as local legend. But, while working on some renovations in the house, they recently uncovered a secret stash of 66 bottles of whiskey hidden in the floorboards and walls.
