Hacking Whiskey

Smoking, Blending, Fat Washing, and Other Whiskey Experiments

This is not your ordinary whiskey book, it’s a collection of ingenious ideas and shortcuts to help you temper your whiskey to greatness in the privacy of your own home. Aaron Goldfarb, a whiskey geek (and writer), is reporting from the field, where he’s gathered tips, recipes, and insider secrets about the weird yet delightful ways in which whiskey is being used today. Things like making cheap homemade blends that taste fancy, infusing whiskey with marijuana smoke, adding it to infinity bottles, and doing bone marrow luge shots, to name a few. So get your hands wet (and your house smoky) and take him up on the challenge of upgrading your whiskey (just don’t forget to brag about it online).

Steven Raichlen is delighted to be featured as an expert in this book!
