Great Whisky Heist Mystery at the Distillery - A Mystery Scavenger Hunt
In the Roaring Twenties, a huge shipment of whisky was stolen from the Gooderham & Worts Distillery and disappeared forever. Recent renovations turned up new evidence and you may finally be able to solve The Great Whisky Heist Mystery.
In 1923, society was rebounding to life after the end of the Great War. Hot jazz was playing in the speakeasies and flappers danced all night while tippling gin fizzes and whisky sours. Fast cars and moving pictures were the very definition of the new modern age. But in one corner of Toronto, men still worked long hard days at dusty backbreaking work, and the perils of prohibition remained: rampant corruption, mobsters, guns and the illegal booze trade over the border, and the motive behind it all: moolah. Everyone had their eye on getting out of the grind and making it big.
Into the scene strolls Ernest Hemingway, a 24-year-old reporter working for the Toronto Daily Star. With a flask in his pocket and notebook in hand, he divides his evenings between the illegal boxing matches and the taverns of Corktown, so named for the tough Irish immigrants who lived and worked there.
Working in teams of 2-6 people, you the sleuths will unravel a tale of dreams, thievery and deceit. Who stole the whiskey? Who got the money? And how did it all go down?
