Whiskey Stones & Gift Set

Skip the ice?serve drinks on the rocks!

$20.00 - 58.00

On The Rocks

Skip the ice--serve your drinks on the rocks.

These innovative soapstone cubes were designed by Andrew Hellman, a big fan of single malt scotch, who wanted to chill his spirits without diluting them. After much research, he came up with the idea of using natural soapstone to chill drinks due to its softness (won't scratch the glass) and its unique ability to retain temperature for extended periods of time. Milled in Perkinsville, Vermont by the oldest soapstone workshop in the United States. Glasses made in Slovenia & the Czech Republic.

Simply freeze the stones. Add three to your next drink, let stand for five minutes and enjoy. Sold as a set of nine.

Why should I use Whiskey Stones instead of ice?

Whiskey Stones are ideal for drinking with high quality whiskey because they keep it at the perfect sipping temperature (50 degrees), whereas ice cubes can make the whiskey too cold and ruin the flavor.

A handful of ice will take a drink to just under 40 degrees, and to deep freeze a drink quickly, there is nothing better. But some drinks you neither want to dilute nor deep freeze. Temperatures in the high 30s are far too cold for good whiskey. Reason being that the wood oils in the whiskey, which have leached into the liquid from the carefully selected cask it was aged in and which carry all the flavor, tend to congeal and "close down" the flavor of the drink itself when the temperature goes below 50. The stones are specifically designed to "take the edge off without diluting or closing down the flavor."

Specifically, 3 stones in a glass containing 2-3 oz. will take the liquid temp from mid-70s (room temperature) to the 50s. Not designed for use with a large volume of liquid.

    Good idea, but doesn't work

    Comments about UncommonGoods Whiskey Stones & Gift Set:

    I love the idea of this product but, unfortunately, it doesn't work. After chilling the stones for several hours and then allowing them to soak in the drink for up to 20 minutes, they didn't chill the drink much at all.
