This might sound very filmy to you, but it’s a fact that a New York couple was recently left awestruck to discover 66 whiskey bottles hidden in the walls of their 100-year-old home.
Nick Drummond and Patrik Bakker moved into their home in Ames, New York in 2019 and that time they were informed that the house was built by a bootlegger.
In a recent Instagram post, Nick mentioned about discovering whiskey bottles in the wall and wrote, “OUR WALLS ARE BUILT OF BOOZE”. He further wrote, “I can’t believe the rumors are true! He was actually a bootlegger! I mean I thought it was a cute story, but the builder of our house was ACTUALLY a bootlegger!”
Nick then shared a video of the repair work, removing the exterior skirting of the house only to find 66 bottles of whiskey from the Prohibition-era hidden within the walls and floorboards of their home, which was built in 1915.

Later Nick wrote a detailed post about the bottles he found. He captioned the post of bottles, “We’ve begun cataloging the booze! Out of the initial 66 bottles found, about 13 bottles are full. But 4 of those have tops in rough-ish condition, so I’d say probably 9 “good” bottles. There’s also a few half-full bottles. The rest have mostly evaporated.”
As soon as the video was shared on social media, netizens started reacting to the post and here is what they had to say:
