In 1 Nephi 4 we learn that Laban "had been out by night" "with the elders of the Jews."
He returned "drunk with wine."
And it was by night; [and] I, Nephi, crept into the city and went forth towards the house of Laban.
And I was led by the Spirit, not knowing beforehand the things which I should do.
Nevertheless I went forth, and as I came near unto the house of Laban I beheld a man, and he had fallen to the earth before me, for he was drunken with wine.
And when I came to him I found that it was Laban.
So what had Laban and the "brethren" or "elders", "out by night," been drinking? Nothing less than "wine infused with vanilla!"
Yes, "vanilla-infused wine was widely consumed by Jerusalem's wealthy during the reign of King Zedekiah," the king whom Laban served. "One of the excavated buildings [in which wine jars with vanilla traces were found] was an impressive two-story structure, which may have served as a bureau for senior royal officials," including a large wine cellar.
To some such place Laban had repaired by night to meet with the elders of the Jews.
