Dusty Booze

In Search of Vintage Spirits

«“I put back Dusty Booze in one sitting. Aaron Goldfarb is a drinker’s drinker, and a writer’s writer. He’s as well-versed in spirits as nearly anyone writing today, yet manages to uncover entirely new worlds in the pages of this book. By turns suspenseful, humorous, and philosophical, Dusty Booze is a propulsive read as deeply concerned with the obsessive, treasure-seeking mindset of collectors as with the vintage bottles themselves. It’s easy to get invested in the thrill of the hunt.”»

Carey Jones, author of Every Cocktail Has a Twist and Be Your Own Bartender

«“I’ll read anything that Aaron Goldfarb writes about beverages, but Dusty Booze is essential reading for anyone interested in the lore of liqueur. Not only is this book a captivating and tirelessly reported dive into a subculture and its cast of Indiana Jones–like collectors, but it’s also an engaging history about the global spirits industry and cocktail culture. Even if, like me, you’re kicking yourself for missing the apex of collecting ‘dusties,’ this book will forever change the way you think about—and shop for—booze.”»

Nick Fauchald, author of Death & Co and Cocktail Codex

«“An investigation into the secretive and competitive collectors and their methods, unsolved mysteries, and mythological caches. The once worthless dusties inspire Goldfarb to debate the monetary value of quality versus rarity and the proximity to fame. And unlike, say, stamp collectors, the author and every other dusty hunter must grapple with the decision whether to taste a moment in time or to keep time locked away in a bottle.”»

«“Aaron Goldfarb nails it again. Witty and informative, Dusty Booze is a deep dive into a world you either know well, or never knew existed—but in either case will find irresistible.”»

Clay Risen, author of Bourbon: The Story of Kentucky Whiskey

«“This book, like those dusty old bottles that so capture our romantic longing, takes us back in time on a journey into the animating forces that created the universe, the sun and the stars—and 1960s Very Very Old Fitzgerald.”»

Wright Thompson, author of Pappyland

«“There are few more intriguing phenomena in the current drinking landscape than dusty hunting and there’s no better booze writer to tell the tale than Aaron Goldfarb. His mix of solid reporting chops and gifted storytelling bring to life this strange world of colorful obsessives chasing the chance of owning, and maybe tasting, history in a bottle.”»

Robert Simonson, cocktail writer for the New York Times and author of the Substack newsletter The Mi

«“Like a film noir detective falling in love with a bewildering client, Aaron Goldfarb immerses himself in a world of mysterious eccentrics and obsessive dusty hunters on a never-ending treasure hunt to uncover unicorn bottles of booze from the past through estate sales and online auctions, and behind bulletproof glass in inner-city liquor stores. But vintage spirits are essentially a nonrenewable resource and Goldfarb’s meditative exploration wrestles with whether this complicated impermanence is simply chasing after trophies or truly a way to taste, and understand, the past.”»

Brad Thomas Parsons, author of Bitters, Amaro, and Last Call
