In early October, two upstate New Yorkers stumbled upon a hidden supply of whiskey in their walls. The cache included dozens of bottles labeled “Old Smuggler” Gaelic Whiskey, some still full.

The bottles were found by Patrick Bakker and Nick Drummond in Ames, a 140 person village in Montgomery County, NY, The Daily Gazette reports. When they bought their home, the previous owner told them it had once belonged to a German bootlegger. The couple shrugged that off as a “cute story” until making the unlikely discovery earlier this month.
