NICK EICHER, HOST: A man in upstate New York bought a fixer-upper house west of Albany and got a bit more than he bargained for.
Nick Drummond set about improving his hundred year old house. And under the floorboards, he stumbled upon a secret stash.
He told USA Today…
DRUMMOND: And after ripping off sort of a few boards at the same time, something sort of tumbles out of the wall. And I was like – is this insulation? But there was like clanking.
Clanking like bottles, 88 of them. Specifically, whiskey bottles from the Prohibition era.
Some bottles were still full and sealed with labels with contents described as blended Gaelic whiskey from Scotland, dated from 1920s and earlier.
Drummond said he’s not quite sure yet what to do with the bottles. But he’s had a lot of fun researching the rumors about the house and the bootleggers who once called it home.
