Gather No Moss

Serve your drinks on actual rocks with these handsome granite drink chillers by Arra David and Anne Johnson. Hand-crafted from stones collected on New England beaches, these granite discs are ideal for chilling aged spirits, such as whiskey or scotch, because they won't dilute the complex flavors like a handful of ice.

Simply chill the set. Drop two stones in 1 to 2 oz. of fine spirits, let stand for five minutes and enjoy. Set of six comes in a convenient hardwood tray for easy freezing and serving, with two tumblers to boot!

Behind the Scenes
The idea of these discs came to be because the same New England artisans that make these napkin rings had excess material and wanted to put it to good use.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Arra David and Anne Johnson

Arra David and Anne Johnson are longtime New England rockhounds. Their love for Mother Nature's artwork in stone and hardwood inspires them to handcraft functional creations that bring the outdoors in. They craft each piece with attention to detail, quality, and respect for nature.

Working with stone calls for custom fixtures and techniques. Arra is an engineer and serial inventor, while Anne is an artist with a keen eye for balance and harmony. Together, they blend the endless varieties of nature's materials into pieces that decorate homes and will keep generations connected to their environment.

To keep our beaches and forests as they are, Anne and Arra "plant" a new quarry stone in the water to replace each one gathered, and they plant ten times the number of trees harvested for their work. collection

    Comments about ON THE ROCKS SET:

    I bought this for my husbands best man in our wedding. He loves whiskey so something like this was unique and perfect for him. He seemed to be excited about it but I don't know if he has actually used them yet or not. I think it makes a good gift because it has all the pieces you need (minus the whiskey!) The tray is convenient to keep them all together instead of scattered about the freezer. It also shipped fast because I needed it in just a few days!

      I wanted a gift for some one who loves scotch and whiskey and felt these would be great so as not to water them down. He loved them and said they worked perfectly.

        Unique conversation piece. These "rocks" are perfect for the Bourbon drinkers, or whatever else you may enjoy. Your cocktail will never produce condensation and become watered down. I highly recommend this product

          These stones are great. They look very nice and stylish, nothing to be embarrassed about to have lying about - in fact you'll want to show them off. Each stone is unique and makes the set feel more personable to you. They keep your drink cold for longer than ice and they won't water down your drink either. And since they're granite, they don't give a taste to your drink either. It really makes you feel that you're enjoying your drink while sitting by a mountain stream.

                Stones were not as smooth and polished as expected. One of the stones is actually crumbling in one area. We had to dump a fine Scothch because of grit coming from the stone.

                  These were a birthday gift for my boyfriend, an avid scotch and whiskey drinker. He absolutely loves them! They stay cold and look amazing in the glass! They are very simple to clean and the tray is easy enough for him that he even puts them back once he's done! Additionally, I want to add that the shipping was fast and simple and the gift wrapping was amazing!
