A New York couple made quite the discovery during a home renovation – a stash of Prohibition-era whiskey hidden in the walls and floorboards.

Nick Drummond says he’d heard stories that the 100-year-old home was built by a local bootlegger – but never believed them before now.

A total of 66 bootleg bottles – worth about $1,000 each – were found in various locations, including a hidden chamber below the floorboards.

Now Drummond, a historical preservationist, has been sharing his discovery on Instagram, along with historical research on the bootlegger – a man named Count Adolph Humpfner who died in 1932.
