Hitler’s secret booze stash discovered! A great Cognac treasure was found close to the famous water castle Moritzburg in Saxonia.
The Saxon royal family used to live here until 1945.
Today, a Nazi secret was unveiled: Adolf’s secret Hennessy stash.
A lot of Cognac was discovered, mainly Hennessy cognac (looks like 3 star Hennessy bottles) – probably looted goods from France.
The man who found the treasure, Mister Stelzer, bought a part of the castle in 2007 and started to rebuild the place.
Apparently the goods were brought here from Berlin in 1944 because of heaving air attacks. Other stuff which was found in the cellars: Cheese, biscuits, butter, salami, coffee, chocolate and cigarettes.
Stelzer: “The Russians looted everything on May 8, 1945.” But apparently they forgot the best part: Cognac.
